01/21/2016
Yulista Aviation, Inc., an aviation industry leader in aviation prototyping, engineering, and manufacturing support, repurposed a 21,000 square foot hanger at Middle Georgia Regional Airport in Macon, Georgia.

According to the Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority, this partnership positions Macon-Bibb for exceptional economic growth and job creation in the aviation/aerospace industry. The Authority invested over $1 million in this partnership by leasing a 21k sq. ft. hangar at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport.

Yulista Aviation Inc. President, Darrell Harrison said, “Yulista Aviation has been supporting the Warner Robins Air Force community since 2011. This new hangar will provide Yulista the capability to meet a broader range of customer requirements and satisfy national security needs. This new facility will increase the opportunities to grow the Macon and Warner Robins workforce.”

“One of the goals identified by the Commission and the public is to expand the use of our airports and become a transportation and logistics hub in Georgia,“ said Macon-Bibb’s Mayor Robert A. B. Reichert. “Our airports can be greater centers of economic activity, and we’re delighted Yulista believes in our community and its potential.”

“Building on its current presence in the region, Yulista Aviation’s expansion into Macon-Bibb County demonstrates recognition of our community’s strong and diverse workforce. Yulista working with the Industrial Authority to repurpose an existing Middle Georgia Regional Airport hangar also exemplifies how communities and companies can creatively collaborate, irrespective of lines on a map, to the benefit of everyone,” said Cliffard Whitby, Chairman of the Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority. “Yulista’s excellence in providing services to our armed services, while respecting the cultural heritage of and commitment to the company’s shareholders, epitomizes the kind of corporate citizen which strengthens our local and national economy.”

“Yulista, from the beginning, has been a great partner to work with, “ said Doug Faour, Manager of the Middle Georgia Regional Airport. “They have shown us they want to come to Macon-Bibb County, and we’re looking forward to working with and supporting them for years to come."
