Councilwoman O’Brien Advocates for Deer Valley Airport Revitalization with Groundbreaking of New Hangarshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-1/2262City Council District 13/9/2022 12:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2262/Newsroom_Council_Statement_01.jpgCouncilwoman O’Brien Advocates for Deer Valley Airport Revitalization with Groundbreaking of New Hangars<div class="ExternalClassE8857A29EE83499E9AFB9ADCE031058B"><html> <p>​Join Phoenix Councilwoman Ann O’Brien, Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, and <a href="https://cutteraviation.com/" data-cke-saved-href="https://cutteraviation.com/" target="_blank">Cutter Aviation</a> for a groundbreaking of new corporate hangars at Deer Valley Airport (DVT) this Friday, March 11, 2022. This is the first major private investment into DVT in 20 years, and Councilwoman O'Brien hopes the start of many more investments to come. <br></p> <p>“Deer Valley is the epitome of Phoenix resilience and rebirth – following in our pioneer footsteps to revitalize a community and bring new life to an area ready for growth,” Councilwoman Ann O’Brien said. “With these new hangars from Cutter Aviation, we take our first steps in partnerships toward more opportunities for this airport and the surrounding business park.”<br></p> <p>Cutter Aviation is beginning Phase 1 of this construction of corporate hangar space with hopes to have it operational by Super Bowl 2023. Cutter is DVT’s only fixed based operator (FBO), and has invested millions into the airport, with plans to invest even more.<br></p> <p> <strong>Background:</strong> </p> <p>Deer Valley Airport (DVT) is one of few municipal airports across the country featuring two runways. Prior to the pandemic, DVT was the fifth-busiest airport in the world for takeoffs and landings, thanks to the two pilot schools housed there. Since the pandemic, one flight school has moved and yet, DVT remains in-demand for general aviation and corporate jets. Currently, a 5-year waiting list exists for general aviation hangar space, and 75 new corporate jets are looking to relocate to DVT. <br></p> <p> <strong>WHO:</strong> Phoenix District 1 Councilwoman Ann O’Brien, Cutter Aviation President and CEO Will Cutter, and Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema </p> <p> <strong>WHEN: </strong> <strong></strong>Friday, March 11 at 12:15 p.m.</p> <p> <strong>WHERE: </strong> <strong></strong>Cutter Aviation Hangar at Deer Valley Airport (732 W. Deer Valley Road, Phoenix, AZ 85027)​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district1Newsdistrict-1D1District 1AnnO’BrienStephanie Barnes602-316-0958 stephanie.barnes@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/42/Stephanie_Barnes.jpgPHXDistrict1
