GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A new aviation company got the green light to expand their company into Guntersville and is expected to bring 50 jobs to the area.

The city council has approved a lease and the site preparation for Global Aviation Solutions to bring their company to the newly expanded airport. All that's left is signing names on a dotted line, and the company's owner says he's happy and excited about getting started.

The company provides maintenance upgrades to both aircraft and helicopters.

Company CEO Darrell Kindley said they hope to begin building the first of two hangers in January and the second one later in 2017. He estimates the first one will take approximately six months to build.

Kindley said they've also purchased 16 acres of adjoining property to allow for growth and expansion.

He said they're also considering moving the corporate headquarters to Guntersville as well.

Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
