The City of Kissimmee hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for Mach1 Aviation, LLC, on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, at Kissimmee Gateway Airport (ISM), to officially start the construction of this company’s hangar and ultimately establish its aviation presence in Kissimmee. The hangar, once completed will be the airport’s largest hangar.

“It is with great appreciation and honor to recognize Mach1 Aviation’s significant investment in the Kissimmee Gateway Airport. This project will assist in meeting the demand for larger aircraft storage space and promoting business activity. As the first hangar to be constructed in the Airport Business Airpark, this first-class facility sets the bar for future hangars planned in the Airpark and the Airport,” said Shaun Germolus, Aviation Director at Kissimmee Gateway Airport.

Mach1 Aviation will provide helicopter training and maintenance and additional space to lease to other aviation companies. Mach 1 Aviation will be the first hangar constructed in the Kissimmee Airport’s Airpark and is certain to create many new aviation jobs in the area.

Construction of Mach1 Aviation’s hangar is expected to be completed within the next 12 to 18 months and become the largest hangar at ISM.
