New multi-tenant center at Felts Field to house museum, other businesses

A major new development is in store for the area by Felts Field Airport in Spokane. A group of investors using the name EFT LLC has unveiled plans for a new 40,000 square foot hanger style building to house a few businesses including one museum that's been under development for some time now. The new building will be located just west of the main airport terminal / offices.

The museum, Honor Point Military & Aerospace Museum , will lease about 10,000 square feet of space there with a small parking area designated for museum patrons. Honor Point Museum is a sort of re-birth for the military museum that once operated on base at Fairchild AFB many years ago.

In addition to Honor Point, the space in the new building will also house Western Aviation, Inc. a fixed base operator who serves Felts Field . Western Aviation already operates nearby but will relocate to the new site which will be bigger an more up to date then their current home further down on E. Rutter. Additionally other space will be available for lease and rumors of a few other tenants have already surfaced.

Construction work will begin on the building which is currently being called the Felts Field General Aviation Flight Center by the end of May. The center should open sometime early next year and cost about $2.8 million to build. And, while the building will be brand new with state of the art features but the look will blend in well with the other buildings in the historic section of the city around the airport.

This development is very important to Felts Field and the entire city of Spokane because it will give the airport a new, modern first class air terminal with a wide range of services. We weren't able to get any photos of the project renderings but some can be found on the Spokane Journal of Business' story about this topic.
