Steelpointe developer plans bid on Sikorsky airport lease

Atlantic is a nationwide firm that has operated hangars at Sikorsky for over three decades and provides fliers a host of services, from fueling and de-icing to baggage services, catering and hotel arrangements. Three Wing, purchased by Christoph about three years ago, is a similar, long-standing business. Officials with Atlantic did not respond Monday to requests for comment. But on at Friday’s commission meeting two Atlantic executives — General Manager Michael Phillips and Regional Director Shawn Rose — urged the airport commission to approve the new lease with their company. Phillips said Atlantic has been a proud steward of its space at Sikorsky and warned that if Atlantic were no longer a tenant there, the airport would lose 30 good-paying, full-time jobs and some of Atlantic’s loyal customers too.
