Sunrise Aviation plans to expand at Florida’s Ormond Beach Municipal Airport (OMN).
A new 12,000-square-foot hangar and office building will be built on approximately one acre of land leased from the city of Ormond Beach. The beginning term of the lease is for 30 years but may be extended in two increments of 10 years each.
The new hangar will allow Sunrise Aviation to consolidate some of its activities in other facilities while still enabling expansion into new business ventures, according to Devon Dorato, president. “This new hangar and office building will allow Sunrise to service new corporate clients in the turbo-prop market,” he said.
The hangar project is the second new lease Sunrise Aviation has acquired this year from the city. In July, the city agreed to lease Sunrise Aviation nearly ½ acre of land at the Ormond Beach Municipal Airport for the construction of a new fuel farm. Construction of that fuel facility is scheduled to begin within the next few months with completion estimated by the middle of 2010.
Sunrise Aviation currently has three hangars at the airport most with attached offices. The main FBO building encompasses 9,000 square feet of hangar and office space and has been renovated since the current owners acquired the business in 2005. Sunrise Aviation, the only full-service FBO at OMN, also utilizes a 9,600 square foot corporate hangar and a 6,000 square foot hangar and office facility used for corporate maintenance and advanced flight training.
Sunrise Aviation is part of a joint venture that leases 33 T-hangars to aircraft owners. Those T-hangars are currently being renovated and will be offered for occupancy soon.
Sunrise Aviation owns 38 aircraft for rental and flight training. The newest additions to the fleet include a glass cockpit Cirrus SR-20 and Cessna 172 SP with G-1000 avionics.
