There is sufficient land for a 50,000 square foot facility and 200,000 square foot parking area at our planned location. City sewer and water has been installed in the area and MnDot (Minnesota Department of Transportation) has granted our
new driveway design to accommodate the facility layout. This will allow visitors access without having to go through the airport main entrance gates.
Our team of board members; Contractor, Accountant, Banker and Attorney is ready to tackle this project and market with limited competitors. This staff’s combined years of banquet facility, events management, corporation and restaurant experience with our dedication to the success of this facility will make Flight Line Café & Event Center a place of vast interest and fun for all its numerous visitors.
Our research has shown that the market for large event space, gift shop and a unique restaurant should be attractive to the rapidly growing area of Blaine. Its close location to a major freeway (35W) and two major highways (State HW10-610 and HW 65-Central Ave.) should allow visitors easy, fast and simple access. Blaine and its surrounding area have been under a tremendous expansion over the past 5 years. More and higher income families are moving into the area, so we feel the potential is high for the success of such a facility at this point in time.

We received the results from our soil drilling of the building location completed on June 13, 2005. According to Professional Engineering Consultants, the site soil and subsurface conditions are satisfactory. The entire area was found to be mostly low grade sand and water levels were acceptable for building. The contractor was very pleased with the results, and indicated that we won't have to remove or replace existing soil.
