Bluewater debuts its build-to-suit Hangars at BKV community
The Hangars at BKV will be a customisable collection of 17 private hangars located next to Bluewater's upcoming FBO. Phase I starts shortly; breaking ground on the 12 acre campus at Brooksville-Tampa Bay.

Bluewater Aviation is proud to debut the initial phase of its more than 12-acre aviation development in the flourishing Tampa Bay region in Florida.

Bluewater was granted a lease at the Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional airport in July 2023, to build and operate the airport's second FBO, and is soon to break ground on the campus. Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2024 and complete by December of the same year. The company is now accepting wait-list reservations for 'The Hangars at BKV'.

Phase I will kickstart the first of several projects at the east end of the airport's 9/27 runway. It will support even the largest business aircraft by offering security and luxurious accommodation via a build-to-suit model. Owners, operators, passengers and crew can expect to enjoy five star concierge support, in addition to Jet-A and Avgas fuelling services.

The Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional airport offers convenient access to anyone in or around the Tampa Bay area via the Veterans Expressway, a direct highway linking Tampa International airport with Brooksville. It boasts an active control tower, a 7,000ft runway with an ILS precision approach, on-site ARFF (Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting) services and less crowded airspace than neighbouring Orlando, Clearwater and Ocala.
