Zurich, Switzerland-based Jet Aviation signed a letter of intent with Ogden, Utah-based Kemp Development to open a Midcoast Aviation maintenance facility and Jet Aviation FBO at Ogden-Hinckley Airport. The Swiss company plans to assume the existing FBO operations of Kemp Jet Services. The new Midcoast facility would allow the company to offer coast-to-coast MRO coverage for the U.S. Jet Aviation Ogden’s MRO plan includes 70,000 sq ft of maintenance hangars and back shops, allowing it to perform heavy maintenance, component repair, refurbishment and paint for midsize and large-cabin business jets.
