Waterford Township-based Corporate Eagle, a provider of membership-based fractional and managed business aviation programs, today announced the lease of a 5.7-acre land parcel at Oakland County International Airport.
The company was selected over other organizations in an Oakland County request for proposal process. Corporate Eagle plans to construct a private aviation facility and add hangar space to accommodate more and larger aircrafts.
“Corporate Eagle has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years, highlighted most recently with the 2015 launch of our Falcon 2000 fractional program,” says Rick Nini, president and CEO of Corporate Eagle. “We posted a record year in 2016.
“During that time, we flew more than 2,000 trips with over 9,000 passengers, landing in 27 different countries. In the past five years, Corporate Eagle has doubled its member base and significantly increased our staff. This is a great opportunity for Corporate Eagle, our staff, and our 41 members, and we’re excited to move forward with this great new facility.”
Corporate Eagle currently operates from a 58,000-square foot facility at Oakland County International Airport, and employs 57 people, including 32 captain-rate pilots. The company’s fleet includes the Dassault Falcon 2000, Raytheon Hawker 800XP, and Beechcraft Super King Air B200. The company also manages several private aircrafts for businesses, families, and individuals.
Details related to design and development timing will be made available in the coming weeks.
