The Jacksonville Aviation Authority today welcomed its newest tenant to Cecil Airport – KCI Aviation – during a groundbreaking ceremony on a new hangar and office facility.

KCI Aviation, a West Virginia-based maintenance and repair organization specializing in corporate aircraft, is expanding its business in the Southeast with the expansion at Cecil Airport.
