Building work begins at Isle of Man jet centre
The Private Jet Company has started work on a new jet centre for business aviation, including executive hangarage, located at the northern side of the Isle of Man airport.

The Private Jet Company has started work on a new jet centre for business aviation, including executive hangarage, located at the northern side of the Isle of Man airport.

The result will be an elegant, modern building, with an impressive entrance and executive ancillary accommodation. It will be completely separate from the main airport complex and will offer parking right outside the door.

"The project will take the island to a new level in terms of its international reputation," says flight and ground operations manager John Bean. "It will project the right image and be a major factor in attracting high value individuals and executives of industry to the island. As we all know, first impressions count!"

Approval to start building was acquired in October, since when over 10,000 cubic metres of soil has been removed to ensure the building is built within the runway protected zone. "Although the adverse weather has been challenging, setting us back two weeks on the schedule, we are confident this will be made up in the coming weeks," says Bean.

The concrete for the foundations and apron will be ready for pouring in February and the steel for the building itself will be arriving in March in time for completion in late summer 2012.
