Project DescriptionTo provide an Airport Rescue & Fire Fighting (ARFF) training facility within Charlotte County. Training is required once per year for fighting fires on an aircraft with props, such as an engine or brake system fire. Training on an aircraft fuselage fire requires training every three years. This new facility will provide for state-of-the-art training in lieu of a mobile facility or traveling to other counties to meet the training requirements.
Project Location26597 Airport Road, Punta Gorda
The final construction completion date and FAA Certification has been extended by 94 days due to material acquisition delays of the COR-TEN Steel required for the production of the simulator.
The actual Phase II CORTEN Aircraft Fuselage production started in October 2021, the interior components had an earlier start date. This did not impact the cost of construction.
Please contact Todd Dunn at the Fire Department for more information.
