Aviation Week: The GrandView Aviation Project
August 18, 2021
The week of August 19 is National Aviation Week, a time to commemorate the soaring achievements that have taken us into the skies since the first flight of the Wright Brothers near Kitty Hawk, NC in 1903. National Aviation Week was proclaimed as National Aviation Day in 1939 by President Franklin Roosevelt and has since been turned into a week long celebration.
Featuring conferences, exhibitions and webinars worldwide, National Aviation Week celebrates the history and achievements that have taken humankind into the sky (fun fact: the Wright Brothers’ initial flight, lasting 12 seconds, was just about equivalent to the wingspan of a 747, at 120 feet). Although the Wright Brothers were not the first to build and fly experimental aircrafts, they are recognized as the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed wing flight possible.
Closer to home, and closer to the ground, we’re celebrating our involvement in a project for GrandView Aviation, a private jet charter company located at Martin State Airport in Middle River, MD (one of their eight locations nationwide). Working with Levin/Brown Architects, we provided design services, fixtures and furniture for this 20,000-square-foot space, using products from HON and JSI for the offices, lounge areas and conference room.
