We'll provide the runway.
One of the most distinctive features of the Arkansas Aeroplex is it
Aviation Park. Uncongested airspace, complete facilities, a clean
environment and moderate climate all combine to make this an ideal site
for commercial aircraft painting, aircraft engine maintenance and
overhaul, aircraft modification/maintenance and avionics repair.
Buildings for your entire aerospace needs.
Few places in North America have the hangar space and related
buildings that are currently available at the Arkansas Aeroplex Aviation
Park. The largest of six large hangars on-site can accommodate up to a
DC-10/Boeing 767. A complete jet-engine test cell (hush house) is also
ready, where jet engines can be safely tested after maintenance or
overhaul. And speaking of maintenance, there are several
aviation-related maintenance buildings here including existing like-new
equipment in some. Air compressors, welding shops, avionics repair
benches, sheet metal shops and much more is available.
One of the distinguishing features of the Aeroplex is our all-weather
11,600-foot concrete runway, complete with Instrument Landing System.
Our tower can be operated to handle any flight schedule required. A
National Weather Service certified weather observation station is on
site (UNICOM 122.7). Material handling, conferencing, catering,
business services, lodging and office space are all available as needed.
An above ground fuel farm is ready to service any aircraft's fuel needs.
And don't worry about ramp space for cargo or extended aircraft
operations - we have 2.5 million square feet of concrete ramp for your
A non-taxing proposition.
The physical features are only the beginning of what you will find
attractive about the Arkansas Aeroplex Aviation Park. Special existing
legislation favors aerospace companies who locate in Arkansas. The
Arkansas Aerospace Program provides qualifying aerospace companies a
state income tax credit of $2000 per net new employee. Aerospace
companies may also claim a sales and use tax credit on materials used in
construction of a business facility and on equipment and machinery used
in connection with the business. Parts or other personal property
incorporated in commercial jet aircraft components or sub-components are
exempt from sales and use tax. Services associated with the alteration,
addition, cleaning, refinishing, replacement or repair of commercial jet
aircraft or components are exempt from the state gross receipts tax.
