Lease to Expand Airport Services
By The Sun, Yuma, Ariz.
Jun. 18--Lux Air Jet Centers signed a new lease with the Yuma County Airport Authority that will result in a multimillion-dollar investment for Yuma's flying community.
"This is the first step in our effort to provide an entirely new level of customer service and support to Yuma's general aviation community," stated Rightpath Limited Development Group partner Robert Banovac. "During the next few months we will start the construction of a brand-new fixed-base operation which will house a magnificent general aviation air terminal."
The new 36,000-square-foot Lux Air facility will open in 2009 and will be located next to the Yuma air traffic control tower. Phase 1 of the expansion has begun with the recent completion of a new fuel farm and acquisition of additional fueling equipment. The construction will include three new aircraft hangars at Yuma International Airport.
"We are very pleased to partner with the Yuma County Airport Authority," said Rightpath partner Danny Hendon. "With this new facility, we can better serve the general aviation community, the military and the airline industry for many years to come."
The new lease is the final step in the transition from the Sun Western Flyers name to the newer brand Lux Air Jet Center.
"Sun Western Flyers has been an integral part of Yuma's aviation industry for over 30 years," said Rightpath partner Rick Burton.
Rightpath Limited Development Group, with headquarters in Scottsdale, is a privately held investment and development company with primary concentration on aviation, commercial retail and residential communities. Partners Hendon, Banovac, Burton and their related entities have developed projects throughout the Southwest valued in excess of $3 billion.
Lux Air Jet Centers and Sun Western Flyers are aviation companies owned and operated by Rightpath Limited Development Group. Collectively, the companies operate a chain of fixed-based operations and hangar developments throughout the Southwest. Current expansion includes a private air terminal and hangar development at the Las Vegas-McCarran Airport after a high profile public auction conducted by the Clark County Commission in December.
