Wisconsin-based aircraft operator and charter provider Jet Out has broken ground on a new headquarters and FBO at Milwaukee General Mitchell International Airport (KMKE), where it will become the third service provider on the field.
The $11 million facility, to be branded as Jet In, will occupy a 6.2-acre leasehold, the last greenfield parcel on the airport. It will include a 10,000-sq-ft, two-story terminal with pilot lounge and snooze room, conference room, fitness center with shower facilities, an upstairs SKYlounge passenger area, and offices.
The company will also build a new fuel farm and a 50,000-sq-ft heated hangar that can accommodate the latest ultra-long-range business jets, including the Bombardier Global 7500. According to company CEO Joseph Crivello, the facility, which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022, has had its design heavily influenced by sustainability and it will be fully compliant with Milwaukee’s Green Infrastructure Plan. He plans for an all-electric fleet of ground service equipment, crew cars, and courtesy cars.
“Services like those provided by Jet In and Jet Out are more essential than ever,” said Crivello. “As we continue to adjust to a post-pandemic world, general aviation provides solutions for individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses, sporting teams, and other institutions seeking to manage risk and adapt their operations to a new reality.”
