"As a charter jet operator servicing the Gulf states, I am very appreciative of the services offered here. Convenience and comfort are the guiding principles of our business and when the pressure's on, the central location of the Jet Center is even more valuable to us. When the Deepwater Horizon disaster struck, we were flying the legal teams from Texas, Louisiana and Florida on very short notice to visit with victims families, court appearances, and medical professionals in all 3 states. The principals of Gordon Elias & Seely were overwhelmed with requests for help and their New Orleans office and this site were fielding large numbers of calls. We booked dozens of charters back and forth between the major Gulf cities during this period and the Center was instrumental in keeping us operating on time." Jason Smith




Ranger Jet Center expands at ISM

July 8, 2005 by General Aviation News Staff / generalaviationnews.com

Ranger Jet Center, at Kissimmee Gateway Airport (ISM) in Florida, is adding state-of-the-art corporate hangar facilities and an executive terminal.

Ranger Jet Center is working to meet the increasing demand for aircraft storage in Central Florida with the addition of seven facilities comprising 166,000 square feet of hangar and office space. The hangars, which feature high-gloss acrylic floors, high bay lighting, and reinforced steel, vary in size to accommodate everything from a Cessna 152 to a Gulfstream V business jet.

Ranger also is building a 60,000-square-foot executive terminal, which is designed to house corporate offices; multiple office tenants; conference rooms; pilot facilities, including a full-service lounge area and modern flight planning room; a gift shop; and a full-service restaurant. The terminal will break ground this fall with completion scheduled for late 2006 or early 2007.

“The new terminal will greatly benefit the community with the creation of new jobs and services,” said Kip Bonar, president. “We are also working on recruiting companies with corporate aircraft to base their operations here, resulting in a positive and direct impact on the local economy.”
