The 30-year ground lease between AFCO and the Greater Orlando Airport Authority (GOAA) offers an ideal site location for state-of-the-art GSE maintenance operations, with an airside equipment staging area, complete with equipment wash rack facilities.
The facility is 75% pre-leased. The initial tenants will take occupancy on February 1st, and the remaining tenants will take occupancy on March 1st. Tenants include Southwest Airlines, Tug Technologies, Skytanking USA, Quantem Aviation and Penaville Servisair USA.
