Your aerospace business can

Take Off in Knoxville

The West Aviation Area at Knoxville’s McGhee Tyson Airport offers clear, level building sites with easy access to our 9,000 and 10,000ft runways. It’s the perfect spot for any aerospace-related business, including aircraft manufacturing, aircraft maintenance, air cargo and logistics operations, corporate aviation facilities, research and development centers, private hangars, and more. The property is already home to numerous aviation-related businesses, a major hotel, an Air National Guard base and an office complex.

A perfect business climate

The business climate is perfect here. Knoxville delivers affordable lease rates, a skilled work force, a low cost of living, a convenient location, and a great quality of life. Because of this, both Endeavor Airlines/Delta Connection and ExpressJet Airlines chose Knoxville’s McGhee Tyson Airport as the site for major aircraft maintenance centers, and why the National Safe Skies Alliance chose us for its headquarters and testing labs. And the best part is there’s still room for you!

Close to everything
and everyone

Knoxville’s McGhee Tyson Airport and our West Aviation Area are located within 750 miles of more than 70-percent of the U.S. population and ten of the nation’s twelve largest cities. Our property is at the convergence of three major interstate highways – Interstate 40 (which runs east and west from coastal North Carolina to California) and Interstate 75 (which runs north and south from southern Florida to northern Michigan) and just outside Knoxville to the Canadian border in northern New York.

Our newest addition: Cirrus Aircraft

When Cirrus Aircraft needed a location for its “Vision Center” – a factory service center, aircraft showroom, and training center for the world’s first single-engine personal jet – it chose Knoxville’s West Aviation Center at McGhee Tyson Airport. Fully operational for more than a year, the Cirrus Aircraft Vision Center now draws customers from across the country and the world to the West Aviation Center at McGhee Tyson Airport.
