Atlantic Aviation breaks ground on new hangar at Chicago Executive

The company has made progress on the development of a new 25,000sq ft hangar


Atlantic Aviation – a subsidiary of Macquarie Infrastructure Corporation – has recently revealed it has broken ground on construction of a 25,000sq ft hangar at its fixed base operation (FBO) at Chicago Executive Airport (PWK).

The new complex will be capable of housing up to a Gulfstream G650/700 and Bombardier Global 7500 and will also include 3000sq ft of office space. The new infrastructure increases the company’s overall hangar space at the airport to 86,500sq ft in total.

Atlantic also plans to develop two acres of additional ramp space as well as a 72,000-gallon fuel farm.

Jay Hamby, senior VP of regional operations, said: “This project will help Atlantic meet the growing demand for hangar space and aircraft parking in the Chicago market and to continue to provide best in class service to the general aviation community there.”

Costing approximately $10.9m (£8m), the project is set to be completed by the fourth quarter of this year.
