Did you know that St. Simons Island real estate was mentioned in the August 2015 edition of Aviation Pros?
Itâ€™s true and the news story highlighted changes taking place at our islandâ€™s beloved airport. In essence, the area is getting a major facelift that will make it easier for select aircraft to fly into and out of the Golden Isles year round.
According to reporter Lindsey Adkison, the work should be completed sometime in late 2016. So, aviation professionals and hobbyists are encouraged to make an offer on St. Simons Island real estate for sale now. There are properties available within driving distance of the airport, which will make it easier for pilots and airplane owners to access the new facilities once they open.
Although the islandâ€™s airport has been in operation for years, it wasnâ€™t considered a high volume facility. That may all change with the upgrades and rebuilding activities currently on the construction teamâ€™s agenda.
Local pilots are already excited about the prospects of having a new lounge, aircraft hanger, terminal, runways and other amenities at their disposal. Plus, theyâ€™ll likely have access to better repair services, overnight storage and refueling options.
Hospitality professionals and local politicians are happy about the planned renovations too. It is assumed that the changes will add jobs, increase tourism revenue and provide more transportation options for people renting St. Simons Island real estate. For example, it has already been announced that the new facility will house rental car providers. So, seasonal guests wonâ€™t have to worry about driving their own vehicles to, and around, St. Simons Island. They can conveniently get their hands on to rental vehicles instead.
