CONROE - The $15 million Galaxy fixed base of operations (FBO) is now open for business at 10260 Carl Pickering Memorial Dr.

Located at the southern end of LSEA’s main runway, Galaxy FBO features two hangers, each totaling 76,000 sf. Built at a cost of $15 million, the hangars can fit about four large cabin jets and 15 to 20 mid-sized business jets.

The main building has 25,000 sf that will house Galaxy’s operations, provide office space and a restaurant with a seating capacity of 130.

The runway project extends the existing primary landing runway from 6,000 feet to 7,500 feet, to accommodate bigger corporate jets. Of the $17.83 million for the runway extension, $15.28 million is provided through the Texas Department of Transportation. The remaining $2.54 million is the county’s match.

Other construction deadlines with the runway project include taxiway reconstruction (December 2014) and substantial completion (June 2014).
