After taking to the skies for the past 35 years, fractional aircraft provider Corporate Eagle is celebrating a major development on the ground. The company ceremonially broke ground on its new headquarters, having been selected by Oakland County International Airport to lease 5.7 acres of land for the development.
Corporate Eagle was selected following an in-depth RFP process by the Waterford-based airport. The new headquarters will be located at the corner of M59 Highland Road and Patterson Parkway.
Its 5.7 acres will include:
- 56,000 sq. ft. of hangar space
- More than 9,000 sq. ft. of business and member VIP facilities
- More than 8,000 sq. ft. of support facilities
- 40,000 gallons of jet fuel storage
- 85,000 sq. ft. of high-load capacity concrete tarmac
Corporate Eagle, a provider of fractional and managed business aviation programs, has 70 full-time employees and a fleet of 14 aircraft. The company was founded in 1982.
According to Corporate Eagle President and CEO Rick Nini, the company has been enjoying a years-long period of extended growth. The new headquarters will accommodate even more anticipated growth.
“We are thrilled to be well on our way with the construction of the new Corporate Eagle headquarters facility,” Nini said in a release. “The number one goal of this new headquarters was to enhance the experience for our members significantly, and I assure you, we have accomplished this goal.
“Also, we have added room for larger and more aircraft and greatly improved the site and floor plans for a more convenient and safer flow of our company operations.”
The company is currently located in a 58,000 sq. ft. facility less than a quarter mile from its new headquarters.
