Airport authorities are getting good news.

The Dothan Regional Airport there has so much space available, giving officials with the option to keep hiring workers.

Commercial jet moved to Dothan over a month ago and already has aircrafts at its facility.

The company has eight airplane hangars, two buildings and one shop and they want to see it full of employees.

"We have received our first two aircrafts, our first aircraft is in work currently the second aircraft will start work on the 17th," said John Schildroth, V.P. General Manager Dothan Operations Commercial Jet Services LLC.

So far 60 people have been hired but Commercial Jet is still looking for more.

"We are in the process of hiring more people now we anticipate to be somewhere around 90 people in mid-July," said Schildroth.

They have a wide variety of positions to fill, but right now they are looking special skill set.

"We are looking for people right now our biggest issue is finding enough sheet metal people to do the work that we got going on right now we've got the state helping us out through ADIT we've got local people that are working here that are helping us find people but we have everyone that we need except sheet structures guys and we are hard looking for those right people," said Schildroth.

Two weeks ago the owner of Commercial Jet stopped by the facilities and impressed with what he saw.

"When I asked them directly if you were pleased with what you've seen or anything that you don't like they seemed to be very very pleased with everything they've seen and they were particularly pleased with the fact that contractors are ahead of schedule and i think they were very happy to be here in Dothan," said Art Morris, Director of Dothan Regional Airport.

Construction is ahead of schedule so it looks like the facility will be finished prior to October 1st.
