At press time, there was still one hangar left unspoken for at the Paradise Aviation Jet Hangar construction project at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS). The Molasky Group has built seven private aircraft hangars on 10 acres adjacent to the airport at Mandalay Bay Road. The land is the last parcel remaining for private hangars at McCarran, the sixth busiest airport in the world.

Amenities in some of the hangars include professional office space complete with high-tech interior design finishes and furnishings, private pilot lounges and observation decks.

Building the hangars involved placing prefabricated panels up to 60 feet tall, 23 feet wide and 10 inches thick. The largest ones weigh close to 20 tons and were lifted into place by a 300-ton crawler. Each panel contains up to a ton of rebar.
