Manufacturer Signs Lease To Assemble Aircraft At Jamestown Airport

first_imgImage by the Luscombe Aircraft Corporation / luscombeair.com.JAMESTOWN – Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel has signed a long-term lease agreement with principals of Luscombe Aircraft Corporation to establish an aircraft production and sales business in a County-owned hangar at the County’s Jamestown Airport.  Wendel says the new enterprise will create new manufacturing jobs and generate lease revenue to offset airport operating costs.“While the current public health crisis has dramatically curtailed the level of aircraft activity at the airports, we are actively planning for a rebound in private and business aviation activity once travel and related restrictions are lifted,” said Wendel. “Similarly, the County remains fully engaged with Boutique Airlines in a broad-based, community support campaign to restore commercial air service at the Jamestown Airport.”Luscombe Aircraft Corporation will be relocating their fledgling operations from Chino, California to Chautauqua County over the next several months. Concurrently, they will be undertaking improvements to the County’s leased hangar to equip the facility with utility infrastructure and building systems necessary to begin full scale aircraft production in the summer of 2020.Luscombe’s production relocation and start-up in Chautauqua County is being actively supported by the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA), The Fredonia Technology Incubator at the State University of New York at Fredonia, and the Chautauqua County Department of Public Facilities’ Airports Division.Luscombe Aircraft Corporation was formed for the purpose of acquiring licenses, designs and other assets to produce modernized variants of the Luscombe Model 8, a venerable single-engine aircraft that went out of production in the early 1970s.Having acquired the FAA type certificates, tooling, new-old stock (NOS) parts and associated assets from the holding company that held the rights to the aircraft design, Luscombe set about identifying a site suitable for assembly, testing and marketing of its modernized designs.The CCIDA monitored the efforts of Luscombe principals as they worked to amass the resources and necessary licenses to produce aircraft.As Luscombe’s business aspirations developed into well-defined plans, CCIDA engaged company principals in market research, analysis of suitable regional supply chain partners, and ultimately steered company representatives to the County’s Jamestown Airport where alignment between Luscombe’s needs and the County’s available hangar resources were realized.Among the many factors cited by Luscombe’s management team in selecting Chautauqua County for its aircraft production facility is the workforce development resources nurtured through Jamestown Community College and SUNY Fredonia and a local manufacturing base with recognized skilled engineers and tradesmen.The establishment of an aircraft production facility at the Jamestown Airport follows closely on the heels of other business development at the County’s airports.In February, Centric Aviation took over operation of all core flight-line services at both the Jamestown and Dunkirk airports under separate lease-operating agreements signed with the County.Under those agreements, the county receives a fixed monthly rental fee as well as a percentage of gross revenues generated from fuel sales, aircraft de-icing and other services.

Women’s World Cup expands from 24 to 32 teams beginning in 2023, FIFA announces

first_img Megan Rapinoe, Jill Ellis among nominees for FIFA awards That event, Infantino said, “made it very clear that this is the time to keep the momentum going and take concrete steps to foster the growth of women’s football. I am glad to see this proposal — the first of several — becoming a reality.”Because the bidding process for the 2023 tournament already has started, the FIFA Council made the expansion decision now, rather than waiting until its next scheduled meeting Oct. 24-25 in Shanghai. Related News The timeline set forth in Wednesday’s announcement says current bidders must reconfirm that interest in bidding and any other eligible member associations can now express interest by August; bid submissions will be due by December; a bid evaluation report will be made by April; and the appointment of host(s) is expected in May.“The expansion reaches far beyond the eight additional participating teams; it means that, from now on, dozens more member associations will organize their women’s football program knowing they have a realistic chance of qualifying,” Infantino said. “The FIFA Women’s World Cup is the most powerful trigger for the professionalization of the women’s game, but it comes but once every four years and is only the top of a much greater pyramid.”In the meantime, we all have a duty to do the groundwork and strengthen women’s football development infrastructure across all confederations.”The nine current official bidders initially were expected to submit bid books by early October. Megan Rapinoe writing book, wants to ‘inspire people to find what they can do’ The Women’s World Cup will expand from 24 teams to 32, beginning with the next tournament in 2023, FIFA announced Wednesday.The FIFA Council unanimously approved the proposal to expand the field by eight teams, a response FIFA president Gianni Infantino says to “the astounding success of this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in France,” won by the defending champion United States.
