APP Jet Center, which operates a network of FBOs across North America, has announced that its new US$5m facility at Hayward Executive Airport in the San Francisco Bay Area, is on track for opening in December. This is a major expansion of APP’s existing operations, designed to better serve its growing client base.
The new 3,000ft² FBO building will include a pilot lounge, snooze rooms, shower facilities, concierge facilities, wi-fi and private meeting rooms. Design of the project has been handled by Niche Interiors, with a brief to aesthetically reflect the style of Silicon Valley.
A new 30,000ft² hangar has also been created, with 28ft tall doors, which will increase APP’s capacity at Hayward to 86,000ft². This includes an existing 12,000ft² hangar that has been fully renovated.
Chris Hambleton, vice president of APP Properties, said, “This is a bold achievement for APP. We are increasing our aircraft storage and client services while developing the most distinguished facility at Hayward Executive Airport. We have planned on this for many years and are very excited for our clients to share our enjoyment of this upscale, modern property.”
Tom Panico, general manager of APP Jet Center Hayward, added, “It’s an honor to offer this top-notch facility to our loyal clients and to our growing list of new clients as well.”
