Flexjet has opened its new global headquarters at Cuyahoga County Airport, featuring the largest seamless LED screen in the US. The result of a $50m investment, the new campus hosts 600 of the company’s 4,000 employees.

At the core of the 243,000-sq-ft campus sits the new Global Operations Control Center. Designed with Flexjet’s growth in mind, the center was built to accommodate future expansion, with space for the technology and staff for double the company’s current fleet of nearly 270 aircraft. 

Inside the center, stadium-style seating surrounds a gigantic screen, standing at 19-ft high, 176-ft wide and featuring 1,572 individual LED panels, it is the third largest seamless LED screen in the world. This impressive centerpiece displays and monitors every Flexjet flight in real time, creating a visually immersive experience and maximizing Flexjet’s efficiency during issues such as major weather systems.
