BREAKING: FlyUSA and Paradise Ventures gets approval for Clearwater Airpark

FlyUSA and Paradise Ventures has received the approval from Clearwater City Council to build a fixed-based operator management and real estate development project for Clearwater Airpark.

The proposal includes plans to build a new, state-of-the-art FBO and terminal facility and new hangars to attract higher value tenants. In addition, the concept includes plans to relocate FlyUSA’s corporate offices to the airpark, which will now be called FLY USA PV.

“I think that the general flavor of the meeting was this is an asset to the city. It’s an amenity, to the citizens of Clearwater and the citizens of Pinellas County,” says Mike Connor, president and chief executive officer of Paradise Ventures.

It also plans to build approximately 40,000 square feet of additional corporate hangar space to accommodate tenants operating Turboprop and/or Very Light Jets.

FlyUSA is a full-service private aviation firm that specializes in on-demand air charter, with a focus on the State of Florida and the Southeast United States. Paradise Ventures is a commercial real estate development company. Both companies are based in Pinellas County. This will be the second public-private partnership between the City of Clearwater and Paradise Ventures, the first of which was the North Clearwater Beach parking garage.
