Aviation is our core, but with some available space on our property, we wanted to have some fun and give back to our community. It started with a Pickleball court in our parking lot and has expanded to a Beach Volleyball court in the summer and an Ice Rink in the winter months. In 2022, we opened our city's first plane spotting park to be enjoyed year round. We're proud to provide safe, fun spaces for staff, tenants and the general public to come out and enjoy with friends and family!
