Cecil Continues to be an Economic Driver

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) has contracted C.C. Borden Construction, Inc. to build hangar 915 at Cecil Airport.  The hangar will be a 33,000 square foot maintenance hangar with associated office, workshop, aircraft hangar and apron area.   Hangar construction is forecasted to be complete in March 2013. 

KCI Aviation, an aircraft maintenance provider, has signed an agreement with the JAA to lease the new facility.  The company currently has aircraft maintenance facilities in West Virginia and Oklahoma.  This third location at Cecil Airport is projected to bring an estimated 40 new jobs to the Jacksonville area with a direct economic impact of $2.2 million annually.  KCI Aviation expects to start Jacksonville operations immediately after hangar construction.
