Fixed-based operator TAC Air is investing $11.5 million for airfield improvements at Blue Grass Airport that will include a new executive terminal and 45,000 s.f. of new hangar space.
As a fixed-base operator, TAC Air provides ramp service for private aircraft, aviation fuel, aircraft storage and tie-down spaces, and aircraft, engine and accessory maintenance. TAC Air currently manages a general aviation terminal that serves as its operational base for handling the needs of those traveling on private and corporate aircraft.
The new 12,000-s.f. terminal will feature a large passenger lobby, two conference rooms with state-of-the-art equipment, a gift store and art gallery, upscale food offering, movie theater, exercise facility, pilot lounge, quiet room and flight planning area. The company hopes to have the new space completed before the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in 2010.
