Cecil Airport is going to celebrate a couple of additions Monday with the groundbreaking for the new Flightstar hangar and the completion of KCI Aviation’s hangar.
KCI performs inspections, maintenance and repair on business jets and turbo-prop planes. Company officials have predicted hiring 30 employees by the end of 2014.
Flightstar Aviation Service’s 150,000-square-foot facility is the largest project built yet by the Jacksonville Aviation Authority at Cecil. It’s expected to generate 250 new jobs. Flightstar has maintained, repaired and converted aircraft at Cecil since 2005.
