Whether you are a developer, a new business looking for that ideal start-up location or an existing business looking to relocate, the Tucson Airport Authority has land and facilities to suit your needs. Tucson International Airport encompasses 8,343 acres of land and is located in a mixed commercial and residential area eight miles south of downtown Tucson. Ryan Airfield is located 10 miles southwest of Tucson in a fast-growing residential area and contains 1,804 acres of land. Both airports have sites that can accommodate businesses that are directly related to airport activity, or sites that are away from the airfield on major streets for any number of industrial, office, warehousing or retail uses.
Tucson's warm, dry climate and 300 days per year of sunshine are part of the reason aerospace giants Raytheon and Bombardier Aerospace landed here. The weather is also the reason that the U.S. Air Force stores more than 5,000 planes at its Tucson Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center. Mix in affordable housing, a strong cultural base, the University of Arizona, Pima Community College (with a dedicated aviation campus) and a highly skilled aviation-related workforce, and the result is an extremely attractive location for aviation and aerospace corporations.
If aviation is not your focus, check the land and facilities that can support all types of manufacturing, warehouse, office and retail operations.
