By the middle of October, there might be a new business at the Bartow Municipal Airport that could mean somewhere between 100 and 200 jobs within a few years.

That was the deal that was finalized between J. Phil McCoy and the Bartow Airport Authority Monday night. In finalizing a contract to sublease a building formerly housing Florida Aircraft Painting, McCoy is relocating Light Sport America from Tunisia to Bartow. If everything goes as planned the deal could close by mid-October.
