Cecil Airport Tenants


The Boeing Company                                                                        
The Boeing Company is the largest tenant at Cecil Airport. As part of the company's Global Services and Support business, its focus is primarily on the modification and repair of F/A-18 Hornets for the Navy and Marine Corps. Just recently the facility established a capability for structural repair of flight control components for F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet after Boeing closed its Mesa, Arizona, location. The facility recently completed conversions of F/A-18C/D models for the next generation US Navy Blue Angels.

Boeing was awarded the QF-16 Full Scale Aerial Target contract by the Air Force with Boeing Cecil Airport selected as the program's production facility. Work on the non-Boeing platform will begin later this year when six prototype F-16 aircraft are to be converted to the QF-16 configuration.
