Clearwater FL, (September 19th, 2022) – Private jet charter and aircraft management company, FlyUSA will enter negotiations with the Clearwater City Council on potentially becoming the new fixed-base operator of the Clearwater Air Park (CLW / KCLW). The Council unanimously selected FlyUSA as the right partner to work with the City to redevelop the Airpark.
FlyUSA and Paradise Ventures, a commercial real estate firm, have submitted a proposal to the City of Clearwater for the City’s RFQ 38-22, a fixed-based operator management and real estate development project for Clearwater Airpark. The proposal includes plans to build a new, state-of-the-art FBO terminal facility and new hangars at Clearwater Air Park.
“Our combined vision is to build a new 15,000 square foot terminal/FBO, which will be the catalyst in bringing higher value activities and tenants to the Airpark while preparing it for the future of aviation. Bringing the right tenants to the Airpark will result in more efficient and less intensive activity for the surrounding neighborhood,” said Barry Shevlin, CEO of FlyUSA.
In addition to the terminal, FlyUSA plans to build approximately 40,000 square feet of additional corporate hangar space to accommodate tenants operating Turboprop class airplanes. This concept includes plans to relocate FlyUSA’s corporate offices to the Airpark. This move reflects FlyUSA’s commitment to providing end-to-end private aviation solutions and maintaining unparalleled client experiences.
Before development at the Airpark, FlyUSA plans to move its headquarters from Tampa to Clearwater, expanding upon its local presence in the area. The new head office will be in a central location at 380 Park Place Blvd, where FlyUSA will house its charter sales, aircraft management, and flight support teams until the Airpark project is completed.
