On Jan. 2, the county commission voted unanimously to build another corporate hangar at Apalachicola Regional Airport .

The construction was requested by Ted Mosteller for Randall Terry who wanted the use of a 3,600 square foot hangar larger than existing hangars but smaller than the unrented corporate hangar completed early in 2012. The new hangar will be a metal building on a concrete foundation.

Commissioners voted to build the hangar but not grant Terry a lease on the building.

According to Dun and Bradstreet, Terry is corporate officer and sole employee of TP Transport Broker Inc. of 101 Apalachcee St., west of Apalachicola . TP Transport was founded in 2011 and had an annual income of $43,000.

According to TP Transport’s corporate website,, the company arranges for transport of automobiles and other freight, but does not own trucks.

Airport Manager Ted Mosteller said Terry had wanted to rent the hangar for 20 years at $500 a month. He said the cost of the hangar would be approximately $180,000 and the construction would be completely funded by grant money from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). He said one of the grants needs to be spent by June.
