On Friday, Signature Flight Support broke ground on its 240,000-sq-ft, $82 million FBO complex at Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport in California. When completed late next year, the new Signature San José facility will serve the general aviation needs of individuals and companies in Silicon Valley. Blue City Holdings, the private aviation arm of Google’s founders, is one of the anchor tenants.

Atlantic Aviation has filed suit against the city of San Jose, Calif., in its efforts to block development of a new Signature Flight Support facility at Norman I. Mineta International Airport. Last month, Signature, in partnership with a group representing the business aircraft of Google’s executives, was awarded a 50-year lease by the San Jose City Council and intends to begin construction on the $82 million FBO this year.

In a vote before the San Jose city council on Tuesday, Signature Flight Support’s proposal for the development of an $82 million FBO in conjunction with Blue City Holdings (representing the private aircraft of the principals of Google) at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport received overwhelming approval. A final verdict is expected next week at the close of a brief public comment period.

Signature’s proposal includes construction of a 10,000-sq-ft executive terminal at San Jose.

A final decision could come this month on a contested development plan at California’s Norman Mineta San Jose International Airport. While Signature Flight Support’s bid to build an $82 million FBO facility received an official endorsement from the airport’s evaluating staff in February, Atlantic Aviation–currently the lone service provider at the airport–appealed that recommendation. The City Council is set to consider the award on or after April 9.

On the heels of the announcement that Signature Flight Support’s bid for an $82 million FBO development project at San Jose (Calif.) Norman Y. Mineta International Airport was endorsed by the airport’s evaluation committee, Atlantic Aviation, the incumbent services provider on the field, has filed an appeal of the decision, asking that its proposal to last summer’s request for proposal process be reconsidered.
