Wilson Air Center is spreading its wings at Memphis International Airport.
Wilson Air, a Kemmons Wilson Company, has signed a 10-year lease for the former Pinnacle Airlines hangar at Memphis International, expanding its jet footprint by 30,500 square feet of prime hangar space.
The new lease will allow Wilson Air Center to expand its corporate aircraft storage capacity and sublease to others looking for additional space. The storage and office space could be attractive to a corporate flight department that may have multiple aircraft, maintenance crew and office support, said David J. Ivey, vice president of Wilson Air Center.
“During the last 12-18 months, we have seen a significant increase in companies in and around Memphis that own their own aircraft,” said Ivey in a statement.
The hangar is adjacent to Wilson Air’s main campus at Memphis International Airport and the expansion brings the company’s 25-acre campus to over 110,000 square feet of heated hangar and 50,000 square feet of shop and office support.
Meteorologist Tim Van Horn has left WMC-TV Action News 5 and entered the world of real estate.
Van Horn has left the news desk behind and joined Crye-Leike Realtors on a full-time basis as an affiliate broker at the company’s Quail Hollow office. Van Horn’s last day with WMC was on Sunday, Jan 11, and the veteran meteorologist began working with Crye-Leike on Monday, Jan. 12.
“It’s a combination of doing something that I’ve been wanting and preparing to do, a chance to help others, and see a lot more of my family,” Van Horn, who began working at the station in 1999, wrote on his blog. “I can’t lie. I am excited. I already like the new boss. It’s me.”
Van Horn will be assisting buyers and sellers in Shelby, Fayette and Tipton Counties. He is a member of the National Association of Realtors, Tennessee Association of Realtors and Memphis Area Association of Realtors.
