Modern Aviation completes two phase development project
Modern by name, modern by nature; the company now has an extra 72,000 sq ft of new and renovated hangar, FBO and office space in Seattle.
Environmental, social and governance features were integrated into all facilities.

North America-based FBO network Modern Aviation has completed the $25 million, two phase development project and FBO renovation at its Boeing Field/King County International airport location in Seattle, Washington.

The project started in 2020. Phase one involved building a 40,000 sq ft hangar and phase two included a 24,500 sq ft hangar with a 7,500 sq ft office building. In 2021, Modern Aviation started a full renovation project of its FBO terminal, which was completed in April 2022.

“These new and renovated facilities are a true reflection of the Modern Aviation name as we serve the current and future needs of the aviation community,” says general manager Eric Schneider.

In addition to the newly constructed hangars, the FBO terminal now provides expanded meeting space, the latest web conferencing capabilities, a new pilot's lounge and other amenities. Expanded ramp operations allow the FBO to excel in meeting the needs of current customers, including private aircraft owners, corporations, charters, medical flights, US military (including the Blue Angels), Presidential visits, and professional and college sports teams.

New security and access technologies have been incorporated into the completed project.

“We are excited to support all segments of aviation at Boeing Field/King County International airport. Our recent development of new hangar and office space allows us to continue supporting the growth in aviation within the region,” says president and CEO Mark Carmen.

ESG (environmental, social and governance) features were integrated into all facilities. Examples include use of special materials to greatly reduce heat island effects on hangar roofs, LED lighting, extensive water-saving measures, use of compostable materials and recycling, drought resistant landscape elements, EV charging stations and electric aircraft towing vehicles.
