Naples Jet Center “100 Percent Operational” One Month After Hurricane Irma Damage

(NAPLES, FL) November 2, 2017 – Naples Jet Center, a fixed-base operator and maintenance provider at Naples Municipal Airport, is fully operational one month after one of the storage hangars sustained damages due to Hurricane Irma. The hurricane ripped off the hangar doors and metal siding from one of the Jet Center’s storage hangars, causing it to be unusable until the structure could be assessed and repaired.

“We are pleased to announce that we are 100 percent operational at our Naples Jet Center facility,” said Matt Hagans, CEO of Eagle Creek Aviation Services, the parent company of Naples Jet Center. “The sides of our storage hangar have been repaired and roof repairs are in progress. We plan to have the doors delivered by the beginning of November and be fully operational before Thanksgiving! The remaining repairs on this hangar will not (and have not) affected regular operations throughout the facility.”

The airport reported wind gusts of 142 mph during the height of the storm, the highest recorded from Hurricane Irma in the U.S.
