Sheltair broke ground this week on a new hangar project at its FBO at Georgia's Savannah Hilton Head International Airport. Intended to meet the growing demand for aircraft shelter in the area, the $5.5 million, 30,000-sq-ft hangar will accommodate the latest class of ultra-long-range business jets and support both transient and based customers. When completed by the end of the year, it will bring the location to more than 148,000 sq ft of hangar space.
“We are focused on investing in new facilities to better serve the general aviation industry across our network,” said Todd Anderson, the Florida-based company’s COO. “This hangar expansion will allow us to accommodate Savannah’s growing business sector while actively participating in the long-term economic growth of the airport and the community.”
At the ground-breaking ceremony on Monday, Greg Kelly, executive director of the Savannah Airport Commission, said, “We appreciate Sheltair’s decision to once again invest millions of more dollars in aviation development here at our airport.” He added the commission looks forward to continued success and growth with the aviation services provider in the years to come.
