An Exclusively Planned Residential Airpark & Golfing Community
Arrive and taxi your aircraft to your residence, play championship golf, enjoy the outdoors and luxury country club living in a smart, private, secure and green energy exclusively planned estate encompassing 5,000+ acres with like-minded individuals; by developing an exclusive modern community that will set an example of what can be accomplished with proper planning, funding, administration, and good people.
The following is an ambitious and bold project designed to provide a unique quality of life, easy access to business centers and a gateway to the world from your doorstep. Aero Estates – The Presidential Club is an exclusive, private, and members-only residential development for successful global leaders and high-net-worth individuals that will embody the conscious design for sustainable green energy, luxury, security, privacy, and environmental integration. A private 622-unit residential development incorporating an executive airport, four championship golf courses, an elegantly designed country club, racquet club, elite fitness center, and outdoor activities. The development will offer 2.5 to 4.5-acre estate size residential lots designed for aviators, aircraft owners, golf enthusiasts and active individuals wanting the finest amenities available. A private residential development integrating a residential airpark, a championship level golfing community with a shared exclusive country club and diverse outdoor activities that ties it all together. We believe in integrating aviation mobility, championship level golf, an elegant country club, racquet club, elite fitness center, outdoor luxury living and striving to be energy independent. We also believe high-net-worth individuals wish to create a unique lifestyle that blends the best of what modern society has to offer, but also offers privacy, security, luxury amenities and the natural beauty of the great outdoors. Play championship golf, hit the racquet club or elite fitness center in the morning and then fly into the city for a meeting or a night on the town. Aero Estates Presidential Club Subdivision will strive to be energy independent by creating green sustainable energy through the conversion of waste to clean electricity (an existing technology), a 12-Megawatt community solar farm, green houses, and other available technologies.
Aero Estates Development Group, Inc. will create a “uniquely ambitious development” that will integrate aviation, golf, country club, and outdoor luxury living for active individuals within a 5,000+ acre privately owned development. We will act as the project developer and will manage strategic partnerships for design, development and completion of the exclusive property. The five phased development will take 3-years to develop the infrastructure and initiate sales, and a total of 14-years to complete the project. Furthermore, the ambitious project will take 2-years to complete the design and feasibility, secure approvals, 2-years to complete the initial development and we generate positive cash flow in year five.

Aero Estates Development Group, Inc. will act as the project developer and will manage strategic partnerships for design, development, and completion of the exclusive property. The five phased development will take 3-years to develop the infrastructure and initiate sales, and a total of 14-years to complete the project. An ambitious project such as this, will take 2-years to complete the design and feasibility, secure approvals and permits, 2-years to complete initial development and we generate positive cash flow in year five (presales are not factored in).
Aero Estates Development Group has located several potential development sites (5,000+ acres) initially in Texas, Florida, Montana, Virginia, Utah, and Colorado. The developer’s strategic vision is to build a number of networked and themed residential airpark and golfing communities built over 15-20 years; revolving around a common shared passion: Aviation, Golf and/or The Outdoors. Providing aviators, aircraft owners, golfers and active individuals the opportunity to share different resources at discounted rates where different amenities are available. Other locations could offer seasonal sports and activities (snow skiing, boating, equestrianism, arts and crafts, etc.). The Northwestern United States would be an ideal location for a winter sports, vast outdoor activities, hiking, boating, hunting, etc. themed development. Aero Estates Presidential Club will strive to be energy independent by creating green sustainable energy through the conversion of waste to clean electricity, a 12-Megawatt community solar farm, community gardens, and other available technologies. In 10-15 years, we envision developing future land and skyport communities and skyport infrastructure (business centers, shopping malls, rooftop launchpads, etc.) as flying vehicles, aerial ridesharing, skyports and space travel bring new opportunities in the not too distant future. Residential airpark communities have similar qualities that future skyports will provide. They essentially link all forms of urban transportation, make our communities an integral component of the transportation evolution, decreasing traffic congestion, enhance quality of life and make the community more accessible to the global market.
We currently seek funding through a partner that shares the same passions for aviation, golf, and the outdoors to develop Aero Estates – The Presidential Club – a 622-unit residential airpark and golfing community. The partner(s) will likely be someone or a group who share the same passion and vision we have and are energized by our fun, profitable, sustainable and legacy worthy project. The development of Aero Estates Presidential Club requires $825 million spread across a four-year funding structure. The scale of this project will be the most modern and elaborate residential airpark and golfing communities in the world. Let’s build that dream! The yearly club member and POA fees for residents, social member fees, non-resident golf course fees, guest rental property, grand ballroom and hangar rentals, pro shop and beverage cart revenue and other funding streams; will provide the yearly operational and maintenance expenses to create a sustainable and thriving community for generations to come.
The development is essentially split in two with one side providing direct access to the two runways via taxiways from the 2.5-4.5-acre estate size residential lots on the airpark side and a golfer’s paradise on the other. All having access to the country club and numerous other amenities from the residential lots, townhouses and condo units. Additional amenities include a full-service FBO, Aviation Business Park, three (3) championship-level signature designed 18-hole par 72 golf courses and a world-class 18-hole par 3 short course masterpiece. A world-class 400-yard range and a second basic range to provide different options for golfers to practice and warm up. We aspire and have designed the development to host PGA and USGA tournaments in the future. The 8,500 x 120-foot FAA approved instrument approach runway, a 5,000 x 100-foot crosswind runway, a Full-Service FBO and Aviation Business Park with 30 commercial sites ranging from 0.75 acres to 1.6-acres. Easily accommodating large business jets (e.g. Gulfstream G700, Global 7500) and helicopters able to taxi back unobstructed to the airpark residential lots via a network of 40-foot wide taxiways with 140-foot setbacks between structures. Aircraft will not overfly the golf course side of the development to minimize any noise concerns. Additional first-class amenities includes an elegantly designed grand country club with all the amenities you would expect, restaurant, an adjacent elite fitness center, day spa, men’s boardroom salon, racquet club with a tournament main center court alongside fourteen synthetic clay lighted tennis courts and ten pickleball courts, a resort style pool with a splash park for kids and adults and adjacent lawn bowling greens, bocce ball, croquet, giant outdoor chess sets and shuffleboard. The development also will include two parks with soccer and football goals, baseball field, fitness stations, covered kids play areas, camping area, extensive jogging, walking, biking & obstacle course trails and gated 24/7 on-site security. The yearly member dues for residents, social member fees, non-resident golf course fees, guest rental property, grand ballroom and hangar rentals, pro shop and beverage cart revenue and other funding streams; will provide the yearly operational and maintenance expenses to create a sustainable and thriving community for generations to come.
The development of Aero Estates Presidential Club Subdivision will require 3-6 months to confirm suitable development sites, conduct feasibility analysis, due diligence, obtain site surveys, evaluate site data, preliminary zoning investigation and narrow down the selection to 1-2 development sites. We’ll begin refining the conceptual plans by teaming with professional aviation, club, golf and tennis firms and consultants, then begin subdivision planning with a selected design-build firm. The remaining part of the first year we’ll select a final master plan, focus on regulatory requirements and land entitlements (impacts, environmental assessments, reports, studies, zone changes, etc.), conduct a site selection and enter into a Right of First Refusal Land Contract. Year two will begin with hiring the remaining development team, completing the land entitlement process, subdivision platting, submitting the preliminary plan and begin the subdivision review process with the local planning board. We’ll also begin our on-line marketing campaign to include magazine articles and exhibit at a national airshow and golf expo. The last half of year two, we’ll finalize construction plans with the design team, receive subdivision planning approval and complete the land acquisition process. Early in year three, we’ll break ground, finalize on-boarding the development team with a majority of the major development completed in the 3rd quarter of year four. Our detailed Action Plan outlines development, marketing and sales milestones, goals and tasks for each of the five phases required to successfully stay on schedule, within budget, meeting sales goals and mitigating risk. In years 5-14, we’ll complete the phased developments expanding available residential lots and amenities within the subdivision and focus on meeting and exceeding our yearly sales goals.

Robert E. Huber, PMP – CEO/Developer
Robert previously owned and developed Aero Estates Airpark (T25) from 2002 to 2012. Aero Estates Airpark is a successful residential airport community located on 120-acres along Lake Palestine in East Texas. Aero Estates Airpark has a 3,100 x 60-foot Bermuda grass runway, taxiways from all lots, pilot-controlled lighting, heliport, floatplane dock, visual approach slope indicator (VASI), and a four-acre lakefront common area. The family founded Aero Estates, LP in 2002 to provide aviation enthusiasts with a pilot-friendly community in a shared interest residential environment. Robert was responsible for property development, operations, future development, marketing, and sales. It was a great opportunity and time to conceptualize and develop the property with his father, George, and stepmother, Maud. They built a beautiful airpark on a shoestring budget, based on hard work, determination, perseverance, and a lot of learning along the way. They also learned how important it is to effectively collaborate with the Property Owners Association on issues of community matters. Aero Estates Airpark (T25) had numerous fly-in events and brought in surrounding communities which promoted interest and camaraderie. Residents enjoyed afternoons and evenings on the lakefront paired with airpark gatherings, boating, and water sports.
The Huber family developed and sold 167 residential airpark lots at Aero Estates Airpark while balancing full-time careers. Robert attended numerous airshows like EAA’s AirVenture Oshkosh Fly-in Convention in Wisconsin and the Sun-n-Fun Expo in Florida as an exhibitor to get exposure and successfully generated business. Routinely placed advertisements in magazines sent brochures from purchased mailing lists, and monthly emails to potential clients, and provided personal tours of the airpark. In 2005, Robert bought his father and stepmother out of the business and then sold the remaining few acres of property in late 2012.
Robert received a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Science from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida in 1997. He is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), holds a Commercial Pilot Certificate with Multi-Engine and Instrument Ratings, and is a combat veteran with multiple tours.

Robert has a successful track record in land development, residential airpark operations, program management, problem-solving, sales, and training. Robert began the development of Aero Estates Executive Airpark while living in Europe, and has spent many years and late nights conceptualizing, consulting, budgeting, and dreaming of an opportunity to build a luxury airpark and golf community.
