Signature Flight Support Nashville has completed construction of a new executive and sports charter terminal and 25,000ft2 (2,322m2) hangar, adding to its legacy terminal and 12 other aircraft hangars.
The terminal’s interior design theme is an ode to Nashville’s music history and features artefacts from musicians and celebrities that have visited Signature Nashville throughout the years. The reception area’s wall is decorated to resemble barrel staves from whiskey barrels. The sports charter section pays homage to Nashville area professional and collegiate sports teams.
The US$15m investment in the new 8,000ft2 (743m2) terminal and hangar was the result of a new 30-year lease with the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA). Signature Nashville plans to renovate its legacy facility in 2019, providing additional capacity for both tenant and transient traffic. A future 16,000ft2 (1,486m2) hangar is also in the pipeline.
Tony Lefebvre, chief operating officer for Signature Flight Support, commented, “The new Signature Nashville is one of our shining stars in our global network. We are proud of our team at Signature Nashville and know that customers visiting Nashville will enjoy the new facility and our staff’s warm hospitality.
“Nashville’s economy is booming, and population growth continues to soar. Together with the MNAA’s ‘BNA Vision’, Signature Nashville is positioned to be the premier facility for general aviation at BNA.”
Signature Nashville’s team volunteers staff time and facilities to support local non-profits such as New Leash on Life’s pet adoption efforts and Mur-Ci Homes, which benefits individuals with disabilities. Signature Nashville also supports general aviation by sponsoring The Middle Tennessee State Women’s Flight Racing Team.
