In mid-October the doors opened at Dulles Jet Center, the third FBO at Washington Dulles International Airport. Dulles Jet Center offers 160,000 sq ft of hangar space, a three-story, 25,000-sq-ft terminal/office building and 300,000 sq ft of ramp space. Nearby Signature Flight Support will provide fuel and other ground support services to Dulles Jet Center customers.

Hangar space is already 65-percent leased and will be limited to 75-percent tenant space, with the remainder to be kept open for transient customers. Hangars are tall enough to fit airplanes as large as a Global Express and include radiant heating, electrical and compressed-air outlets, wash-down hoses, storage room for each based aircraft and maintenance shop space.

FBO amenities include WSI weather in the flight planning room, showers and lockers, wireless Internet access, 24-hour customer service desk, flight department office space, catering kitchen and camera-surveillance security system.
