Houston Executive Airport (TME) – Brookshire, TX

Houston Executive Getting New FBO Terminal

Houston Executive Airport (TME) announced construction of a new 22,500-square-foot FBO terminal building and a large arrival canopy, citing high demand for additional hangar lease space. The privately developed airport, which opened in early 2007, boasts a 6,610-foot runway and state-of-the-art facilities for general aviation, which includes business aviation.

“Our new terminal building will raise the level of services at Houston Executive,” said Andrew Perry, executive director for TME as well as Austin Executive Airport. Perry said that the new terminal is expected to open in early 2013.

Houston Executive, funded by Houston businessman and pilot Ron Henriksen, has grown steadily since it opened five years ago, and now has more than 80 based aircraft, more than one-third of which are turbine aircraft. The airport added two new hangars in the past eight months, bringing the airport’s total hangar space to more than 122,00 square feet. TME is located in Brookshire, TX, near the so-called “Houston energy corridor.”

“We remain extremely optimistic about private business travel in the years to come and we want to be top of mind to any aircraft owner or pilot seeking the best service and amenities in the Houston area,” said Henriksen in a prepared statement. Henriksen also funded and built Austin Executive Airport, which opened in 2011.

“Ron Henriksen deserves a lot of credit for his commitment to business aviation, as demonstrated by his development of a Houston-area reliever airport that provides general aviation with additional access to the west side of Houston and the energy corridor,” said Steve Hadley, NBAA’s director of regional programs and Southwest regional representative. “Houston Executive, a top-of-the-line facility, also provides a number of area businesses with direct access to the nation’s air transportation system.”
