Firm sues K.C. over airport project

November 28, 2009


— Aviation firm Executive Beechcraft has sued Kansas City for creating a competing terminal project at the Wheeler Downtown Airport.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Jackson County Court, reportedly claims the city failed to tell Executive Beechcraft’s owner about the competing project.

Executive Beechcraft operates the airport’s largest terminal on property leased from the city.

The lawsuit says BBA U.S. Holdings Inc., which bought Executive Beechcraft in 2007, would have paid less if it had known it would not be the only executive terminal at the airport. City officials say they disagree with the claims.
