Just a year after breaking ground on its latest hangar development in Denver, Colorado US FBO chain Sheltair has inaugurated its second large cabin class-size hangar in a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Simultaneously, the company also celebrated the groundbreaking of its new expansion project, which will add three more hangars to its FBO portfolio at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan airport.
Equipped with 28 ft tail-height doors, Sheltair's newly-completed Hangar B has added 30,240 sq ft of hangar space for large cabin class aircraft such as the G650 and Global Express. Considering its promise to deliver a premier guest experience, the company also added overhead radiant heaters, high-volume fans and four utility stations with power, water and compressed air hookups for comfort and convenience.
The new $12 million facility will provide tenants with an additional 6,324 sq ft of Class A office and support space, designed as six leasable areas served by common space, including a lobby, kitchen and restrooms. Outside, the latest addition to the complex includes 48,000 sq ft of new ramp space and 94 vehicle parking spaces, 16 of which are covered. Electric vehicle charging stations are also available for customers.
“Sheltair's latest hangar completion demonstrates its commitment to the people of Jefferson County,” says Rocky Mountain Metropolitan airport director Paul Anslow. “We are delighted to have a premier partner in Sheltair, and we are confident that our relationship will lead to long-term success.”
Sheltair added to the inauguration of Hangar B with the groundbreaking of its new development project, a facility expansion that aims to deliver 52,000 sq ft of hangar space and 3,700 sq ft of office space in the first quarter of 2024. The construction will include three hangars equipped with a large flexible space, two offices, restrooms and a three car garage. Parking for 56 vehicles and 67,856 sq ft of new ramp space will also be added to support the operation of this new project.
“We are excited to continue the expansion of Sheltair at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan airport,” says COO Todd Anderson. “We are focused on our ongoing promise to fuel, build and serve the Jefferson County community, and delivering facilities that will meet and exceed the present and future needs of business aviation here.”
Since its arrival at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan airport, the company has invested millions of dollars in aviation infrastructure to propel the Jefferson County community forward.
