Private Sky Aviation, which has leased property at Southwest Florida International Airport for more than two decades, filed a lawsuit against its landlord, Lee County Port Authority, over it requesting bids for competition. 

Private Sky said competition would ruin its ability to operate and fulfill its lease as the south Fort Myers airport’s only fixed-based operator, or FBO. The lease doesn’t expire until 2060. 

“Private Sky seeks an injunction to preclude the Authority from developing a second FBO at RSW at this moment in time, at least until the Retail Jet-A fuel volume meets the industry standard threshold to support two FBOs at one airport,” Private Sky’s complaint states.
