Hangar to rise at Crestview airport

Published: Monday, January 28, 2013 at 10:04 AM.

The tenant anticipates providing about 150 permanent jobs, Gilmore said. Construction of the hangar will provide jobs for local builders, he said.

"All the employees, all the workers and all the people driving bulldozers and trucks, they'll all be local people," Gilmore said.

Having a tenant has added impetus to get the project moving. Gilmore said he anticipates construction beginning "within 120 days. We're waiting for the weather to get a little bit better."

"We've got to get it built and we've got to get it built quickly," he said.

"It’s great to know all our efforts are paying off," Stenson said. "We’ve worked our tails off to build a world-class industrial airport, and we’re seeing it happen before our eyes.

"It’s real rewarding to see. We’ve all worked hard for that airport."
