Jet Aviation Singapore triples maintenance hangar size
Jet Aviation Singapore is building a hangar adjacent to its current facilities in Seletar Aerospace Park, bringing the total hangar size to 7,500 sq m.
Set to be operational in early 2014, the new facility will add two floors of shops and offices covering a gross area of 2,500 sq m and approximately 9,300 sq m to its apron.
The existing hangar will be integrated into the new hangar, and will incorporate two stories of office space in addition to new battery, tire, upholstery and woodworking back shops, including two paint spray booths.
Jet Aviation Singapore hosted a ground-breaking ceremony last week to celebrate the commencement of construction of the new maintenance hangar. The event was attended by over 150 people, including Dan Clare, president, Jet Aviation; Gary Dolski, vice president and general manager, Jet Aviation Singapore; Lim Kok Kiang, executive director, Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB); and Leow Thiam Seng, director, Singapore Jurong Town Corporation.
"Our additional hangar space will permit up to five G650 or five Global Express 7000 aircraft and clearly improves our ability to accommodate large, long-range business jets, which are the preferred aircraft in the region," says Gary Dolski.
"We worked in close cooperation with Singapore's Economic Development Board and JTC Corporation, the national developer of industrial infrastructure, to finalize our lease and conclude this expansion project agreement," Dolski adds.
