Houston Executive Airport adds aviation's largest FBO arrival canopy
Ron Henriksen, a Houston aviation enthusiast and businessman, has announced the construction of the world's largest fixed-based operator arrival canopy.
The 32,800-square-foot canopy is part of the current construction at Henriksen Jet Center at Houston Executive Airport, according to a press release issued Tuesday, Dec. 18.
The 22,500-square-foot FBO terminal building and canopy are scheduled for completion in February 2013 when the whole facility will be open for public and business use. Weir Enterprises is constructing the canopy.
"Texas continues to be a leader in the nation for aviation expansion and opportunities," said Henriksen in the release. "We've seen robust growth in both Houston and Austin, and it's exciting to be involved in an industry that provides jobs, creates and retains new businesses, and has such a positive impact on the community."
The new terminal building is expected to draw new business for the Houston economy and increase traffic at the airport, according to Andrew Perry, executive director for Houston Executive Airport and Austin Executive Airport.
"Investing in the world's largest arrival canopy provides another level of comfort for our customers, regardless of the weather," said Perry in the release. "It's among key amenities that set Houston Executive apart from other airports. With the dedication and vision of Ron Henriksen, we're at the forefront of making Houston a leader in general aviation facilities nationwide."
