Corporate helicopter facility at Hamilton
10 December 2013 - A dedicated corporate helicopter charter facility will be constructed and operational at Hamilton Airport by the middle of next year.
Hamilton Airport has just completed negotiations to lease a portion of prime airside land to Hamilton Heliport Limited. The new facility will house Helicorp Limited, a successful corporate charter helicopter business that currently operates from the western precinct of the airfield. Construction of the purpose-built corporate aviation facility in close proximity to the airport terminal building will commence in January. It will include high quality administration offices, a corporate lounge and meeting room, and the storage of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.
Hamilton Airport’s General Manager – Commercial, George Clark, sees this as an exciting development for the airport, one which will attract corporate business and leisure aircraft operators to use Hamilton as a base.
Mr Clark says “The excellent design and functionality of this building is a credit to its owners, one of whom is Brent Glover, a local businessman who operates Helicorp. Following on from the recent sale of land at the airport by Titanium Park to Shaw’s Wire Ropes, this building will be a fantastic new addition to the airport precinct.”
Mr Glover says construction is due to be completed by June 2014.
“My business partner and I are very pleased to have worked with the airport company to make this new business opportunity happen. We see this facility as the initial stage of a possible two-stage project, with the airport company giving us an option on additional land should that be required,” he says.
