Anson Aviation broke ground at on its 24,000 square foot, state-of-the art office and hangar facility at Sugar Land Regional Airport. Anson Air already operates the only FAA approved pilot school at the airport. The $3 million facility will allow Anson to expand its offering of innovative aviation services and create 15 new aviation jobs at Sugar Land Regional.
“Our business plan has always been based on challenging the traditional assumptions of our industry. For example, we see training pilots and renting airplanes as a lifestyle business, not an airplane business. The mobility and freedom available to pilots of personal airplanes fits perfectly with the premium lifestyle offered by Sugar Land and Fort Bend County.,” said founder and president, Dana Atkinson.
The customer service driven attitude of Anson’s business also involves helping aspiring professional pilots to achieve their dreams of flying careers. Anson offers a full range of pilot courses and the company provides flight training for the professional pilot programs at San Jacinto Community College and Mountain State University.
In coming months Anson plans to announce additional innovative aeronautical services for pilots, airplane owners, and the general public.
“It is our vision to provide all of the services and expertise needed to enable our customers to enjoy private airplanes for business and personal travel. Airplane owners, pilots who rent airplanes and the general public will find a friendly, inviting, professional atmosphere with everything they need for personal air transportation,” Atkinson said.
Sugar Land Regional Airport is a well-established and rapidly expanding center for aviation. It is the fourth largest airport in the greater Houston area, and one of the foremost general reliever airports in the gulf coast region.
