Construction has started on Minuteman Aviation’s new hangar at Missoula International Airport in Montana as the aviation service provider looks to expand its availability in time for winter.
The hangar, which is planned to be completed by November, will total almost 30,000 square feet. While half of the structure will be filled with some of the operation’s existing long-term customers, space for overnights or long-term leases will be available in the new hangar and the FBO’s main hangar.
This project marks phase one of a multiyear plan to expand Minuteman Aviation’s operation at Missoula International Airport to meet the demands of increased traffic.
The expansion plans include the building of an additional 150,000 square feet of ramp space with an asphalt rating that allows for 60,000-pound aircraft. Nearly half of the ramp is completed and in use, with the remaining ramp space to be completed along with Missoula’s new terminal in mid-2021.
To further serve airport clientele, Minuteman Aviation’s plans include an additional taxi option in and out of its ramp for enhanced accessibility.
Located in Montana’s Rocky Mountain region, Minuteman Aviation is a comprehensive aviation service provider with more than 40 years of experience and offers a full-Service FBO, Minuteman Jet Center, for maintenance and helicopter services.
