Mr. Savage briefed the Authority on the sale of the aircraft parts and interior division of Hunting Aircraft, Inc.(Hunting), to AIM Aviation Atlanta, Inc.(AIM), a long time competitor in Great Britain. The effect locally will be that the employees and operations of Hunting will continue much the same as it has previously, but under the new name and ownership. Under the lease agreement with Hunting, who will continue as leaseholder, the Authority must approve any sub-lease of the FBO hangar to any third parties. Mr. Savage recommended that the Authority approve the sub-lease to AIM as requested. A motion was made by Mr. Good and seconded by Mr. Buffington to approve the sub-lease of all existing office/storage space currently utilized by Hunting Aircraft, Inc., located at Peachtree City-Falcon Field Airport, and not currently sub-leased to Stevens Aircraft, Inc. (Stevens), to AIM Aviation Atlanta, Inc., for a term to run concurrent with the primary lease held by Hunting, or until terminated earlier by consent of all parties. Should the primary lease to Hunting terminate for any reason, said sub-lease to AIM shall also terminate. Hunting acknowledges that this sub-lease will not release or reduce any rights of the Peachtree City Airport Authority to enforce the primary lease between the Authority and Hunting, and that this approval is strictly limited to this one sub- lease and shall not be construed as consenting to any further sub-leases or assignments, either by AIM or Hunting. The motion passed unanimously. Hearing no further business for the public portion of the meeting, at 11 :54 a.m., Chairman Patterson called for a five minute recess with the intent to reconvene in Executive Session to confer with the Authority Attorney on matters regarding property acquisition and possible litigation. 2 - , , ~, 1'9 III.

Said plan should be submitted to the Authority prior to its next meeting scheduled for March 4, 1998. Should Group VI fail to submit such a written plan, or if such plan is not acceptable to the Authority, the Authority will give Group VI thirty days to completely correct all deficiencies.
