Sky Helicopters, the FBO at Garland/DRW Heliport, has added a new hangar and more ramp space. The eight-acre public heliport a few miles from downtown Dallas in Garland, Texas, now has hangar space for up to 50 helicopters and over a quarter-million square feet of ramp space. The newest hangar can hold 12 helicopters and adds 17,500 square feet of concrete ramp area.

Sky Helicopters has been the heliport’s FBO since 1992. Opened in 1988, Garland/DFW is one of fewer than a dozen stand-alone public-use heliports in the U.S. It offers fuel sales, hangar rental, charter, training and maintenance.

Existing buildings include a public terminal, office and three other hangars. Terminal amenities include conference/training facilities, pilot lounge, offices for local television stations, and administration for Sky’s Part 141 flight school and Part 145 repair station.
