This development campaign is simply an expansion of the intense level of transportation and aviation manufacturing activity already existing in Amarillo, just more focused. The Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport has hundreds of acres of prime real-estate that can serve both aviation and non-aviation business needs. The real estate opportunities at the Airport are supported by very strong and successful private/public partnerships within the City of Amarillo.

Michael Conner, Director of Aviation, commented, “At the Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport, we take partnerships seriously and realize that positive relationships and creative thinking help to build economic engines that stand the test of time.”

Conner went on to say, “Our mission with our enhanced development portfolio of partnership programs is in solidifying Amarillo as a significant location in the supply chain for aviation and other industries as well.”

A key customer-focused aspect of the “Taking Flight, Experience Amarillo” initiative is the creation of the Taking Flight, Experience Amarillo Leadership Team. The Leadership Team is comprised of prominent business leaders who are leading experts in their various fields and who have volunteered their time and expertise to assist companies who express interest in Amarillo.

The areas of expertise of the Leadership Team include; economic incentives, financial services – liquidity issues & programs, Amarillo labor force education & counseling, understanding the supply chain distribution in Amarillo and maintenance and repair operations (MRO) currently at the Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport.
