Stuart Jet Center has started construction on two new hangars ahead of South Florida’s busy winter season.
Both hangars are set to measure 25,000ft² (2,322m²) and will be able to accommodate aircraft up to the size of a G-650 and Global Express. The project is to include an adjoining 11,000ft² (1,021m²) office and shop space that will be accessible from the hangars. The spaces are expected to be available for occupancy in November of this year.
Dan Capen, president, Stuart Jet Center, said, “We’re always looking for opportunities to expand and better serve our customers. These new hangars, complete with office space, will give us the space we need to accommodate the growth of Stuart and our customer base, particularly as we head into the winter months.”
The FBO is preparing for even more traffic than usual as its Witham Field base is the designated West Palm Beach alternative when a temporary flight restriction (TFR) is in place, which is happening more frequently as the US President has a home in nearby Mar-A-Lago.
Stuart Jet Center is also set to expand its services with US Customs in the first quarter of 2018.
