The City of Statesville is proud to welcome Jet East, A Gama Aviation Company, as the newest tenant at the Statesville Regional Airport. The lease with Jet East was unanimously approved by City Council at the October 17th meeting. The lease includes two hangars formerly known as the Lowes Hangar located at 116 Lowes Aviation Drive, and the Rubbermaid Hangar located at 151 Hangar Drive. “We are extremely pleased that Jet East decided to make Statesville the location for their newest maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility,” stated Mayor Costi Kutteh. “And we look forward to a long-term partnership for years to come.”
The city anticipates 200 employees based out of Jet East’s operation, significant increase in fuel revenue, increased activity at the airport, and the long-term occupancy of the old Lowes hangar.
