New PGD tenant building hangar to repair commercial jets

Author: Nancy Semon, Gulfshore Business

Charlotte County Airport Authority commissioners approved a land lease agreement with a Miami-area firm to build a hangar large enough to accommodate two single-body commercial jets for maintenance and repairs. The 5-acre site also will house an office, ramp and parking facilities. 

The firm, NAS MRO Services LLC, can now move forward to the application, permitting and construction phases of the project after the CCAA approved the lease agreement June 20.   

Because of the Aviation Maintenance School at Punta Gorda Airport, NAS MRO chose to locate its first maintenance and pepair overhaul facility in Punta Gorda, company Director of Operations and chief operating officer Nestor Camacho said. 

Camacho said it is difficult to find airframe- and powerplant-trained mechanics in Miami.
