Skyservice Business Aviation is expanding into Napa, California with construction of a new jet centre.

The 60,000 sq ft full-service private jet centre at Napa County airport will include FBO and maintenance services. The facility will also provide luxurious lounge amenities for passengers and flight crews, conference room capabilities and upscale customer services.

“We are excited to develop a private jet facility that will serve as the pinnacle gateway to one of North America's most renowned recreation hubs,” says president and CEO Benjamin Murray. “Our expansion in Napa demonstrates our commitment to providing world-class private aviation services in North America, supporting local communities and their economies.”

The facility will house a 40,000 sq ft hangar with 28 ft high and 160 ft wide doors that can accommodate newer aircraft such as the Gulfstream 650 while supporting the airport's more popular Citation and Challenger aircraft with ease. Upon completion, it will support some of the industry's top sustainable operations solutions.

“We are passionate about shaping the future of business aviation by offering innovative and responsible operations to our customers. With a strong commitment to reducing carbon emissions and working towards climate action, we strive to improve and implement sustainable initiatives in our industry and seek partners sharing our vision of a cleaner, more sustainable future.”

Construction will commence in the new year, and from January 2023 Skyservice will temporarily operate out of a modular facility at Napa County airport.
