Spirit Aeronautics Adds Interior Completions Hangar
Spirit Aeronautics has added a hangar at its Port Columbus International Airport campus in Ohio. “The new hangar, located adjacent to our current facility, is approximately 8,000 sq ft and includes 7,800 sq ft of shop space and additional office space,” Tony Bailey, the company’s president, told AIN. “The addition of Hangar 3 gives our interior refurbishment and service shop the room needed to increase capacity and improve productivity. It allows us to lay out full Challenger-, Global- and Gulfstream-size interiors and work concurrently on different elements of a project, ultimately reducing aircraft downtime,” he said.
