In a project that adds more than 45,000 sq ft to its Love Field facility, General Dynamics Aviation Services is expanding its Dallas Service Center by leasing a hangar from Signature Flight Support. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The addition will house maintenance operations for the Gulfstream G200. Two existing and adjacent General Dynamics Aviation Services hangars at Dallas Love Field service large-cabin Gulfstreams as well as Falcons, Challengers and Hawkers.

The addition, which includes 31,000 sq ft of hangar capacity and 16,200 sq ft of shop and office space, boosts the company’s Dallas footprint to nearly 170,000 sq ft. The extra room means the facility can handle eight additional aircraft. It also enhances the company’s refurbishment capabilities. In 2007, the General Dynamics Aviation Services Dallas facility serviced 2,652 aircraft.
