Sun Air Jets' new green building certified hangars at Van Nuys airport are now fully operational. The new facility will support the organisation as it grows and aim to offer its clients more private and secure hangar and terminal space.
The facility doubles the size of Sun Air Jets’ footprint of available space at Van Nuys. The two adjoining hangars that each have attached private terminal and office facilities are located in the northwest corner of the airport, providing 71,000 square feet of new space on 4.4 acres. Designed to offer a level of luxury, the new facilities offer private offices, lounges, meeting rooms and gated guest parking.
Aeroplex Group Partners assisted Sun Air Jets in securing the location, and also managed the project development team working with Viole Construction and JMRA Architects. Aeroplex will oversee the location, together with Sun Air Jets’ existing facilities on the northeast corner of Van Nuys airport.
Sun Air Jets new facilities meet California’s environmental green building standards and includes a solar rooftop feed in tariff system that will assist the Los Angeles World Airports environmentally sustainable energy programme. Designed to achieve the United States Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver certification, this is one part of Sun Air Jets’ commitment to lead the way to a more sustainable future for private aviation.
It also partnered with Terrapass.com to ensure carbon offsetting of its charter flights, and is one of the first private aviation companies to offer a permanent supply of sustainable aviation fuel in southern California.
