CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. -- Commissioners in Charlotte County have approved a $100,500 tax incentive to a company that builds flying sports cars.

The money comes from a fund created in 2011 dedicated to funding future economic incentives.

The company is investing in Charlotte County with their SwitchBlade flying sports car manufacturing facility.
