For U.S. Gulf Coast residents history repeated itself at the end of August when Hurricane Isaac struck, seven years to the day after Hurricane Katrina roared ashore and nearly drowned New Orleans. The storm caused the temporary closure of several area airports and forced others to declare “ATC-zero” status due to tower shutdowns or other lapses in contact with ATC.

The former Million Air FBO facility at New Orleans Lakefront Airport that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005 will officially rise from the ashes tomorrow when Odyssey Aviation opens its new 30,000-sq-ft complex. Although the name is different, the FBO is under the same ownership; the Cincinnati-headquartered FBO group rebranded its seven FBOs from Million Air to Odyssey Aviation in 2008.
