Santa Rosa moves forward on getting 2nd service provider at airport

Louis Cooper

For the first time, Santa Rosa County is line to have a second fixed-base operator at the county-owned airport in East Milton.

Aircraft Management Services has been the sole FBO at Peter Prince Airport, providing mechanical services, aircraft repair and other services to the general aviation traffic at the facility.
Earlier this year, a new company – Milton Aviation Partners – asked the county for an opportunity to provide similar services at the airport. The Santa Rosa County Commission responded by issuing a request for proposals, and the company replied with a compliant proposal.

“This includes all aviation services – primarily major engine repair, major airframe repair, etcetera,” Michael Mooney, a principal with Milton Aviation, told the commission at today’s workshop. “We have a crew of eight individuals who are coming together to provide these services.”

The company wants to build a 5,000-square-foot maintenance/operations facility, a 3,000-square-foot facility with a pilot’s lounge, store and offices, and a 2,000-square-foot facility to house other aviation-related activities.

Today, the commission voted unanimously to place an item on Thursday’s regular meeting agenda to allow county staff to negotiate a contract with Milton Aviation.
