Jet Aviation’s third hangar construction project at Singapore facility on scheduleApril 11, 2017
Jet Aviation is on schedule to complete its third new hangar at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore by November 2017. The 3,850-square-meter tenant hangar will accommodate up to two BBJs or five Gulfstream G550 aircraft, and further adds 380 square meters to the Interior Shop as well as providing space for equipment and storage.
Construction of the third new hangar alongside Jet Aviation’s current MRO and FBO operation at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore is currently underway and on track. The hangar is slated for completion in November 2017.
The hangar is being constructed by Aircraft Support Industries (ASI) under a design-build contract that is being managed by MERx Construction, the same two companies Jet Aviation worked with on its second hangar project in 2014. Thus far, the foundation has been laid and the two-story annex shell structure and all temporary structures have been erected.
With the new hangar, the Singapore facility will have a total hangar space of 11,650 square meters, with hangar three equipped to accommodate an additional two Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) aircraft or five Gulfstream G550 aircraft. The project also provides 315 square meters of storage space, while adding 380 square meters to the Interior Shop, nearly doubling its existing footprint for a total of 860 square meters. It will further incorporate a new workflow and state-of-the-art air conditioning and humidity control system to maintain humidity levels well below 50 percent.
“We are building this third hangar to meet the growing demand in the region for business aviation services, particularly for large, long-range business jets," says John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO facility in Singapore. "The new hangar will significantly boost the capacity of our maintenance, FBO and parking operations.”
