US FBO chain Sheltair Aviation has completed construction on a hangar and office facility at its award-winning Tampa International airport FBO location in Florida. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was recently held to commemorate the hangar's grand opening.

The $26 million project took approximately 18 months to construct four hangars with attached office space and covered parking. The new complex adds 77,000sq ft of hangar space and 32,000sq ft of office space to the FBO. This expands Sheltair's total Tampa hangar and office real estate to 300,557sq ft on a 35 acre complex.

“We are excited to be opening these new hangars at TPA,” says CEO and president Lisa Holland. “These sleek facilities are a game changer, not just for addressing the soaring demand in aircraft storage at Tampa but also for fuelling fresh economic growth in the airport's vibrant community.”

The four new hangars range from 14,562sq ft to 33,269sq ft, with offices ranging from 5,700sq ft to 14,247sq ft. With 28.6ft doors, the complex can accommodate a diverse range of aircraft, including large-cabin class aircraft like the G650 or Global 7500. The hangars further feature a foam fire suppression system.

Tenants of the complex benefit from Sheltair's new 336,208sq ft apron in addition to nearly 43,000sq ft of reconstructed heavy-duty asphalt.
