California FBO Increases Hangar Space
Business Jet Center at Oakland International Airport has embarked on the reconstruction of a former neighboring cargo handling facility to turn it into an additional 61,505 sq ft of hangar space. The $5 million project will bring the FBO’s total business and general aviation shelter at the airport to more than 155,000 sq ft. The structure will be able to accommodate multiple large aircraft, including the newly certified Gulfstream G650. “Demand for hangar space at our facility continues to outpace capacity,” said David Mills, the FBO’s general manager. “We wanted to increase our available square footage not only to meet our present customers’ needs but also to be in a position to accommodate future requests.” The location also recently completed a $250,000 renovation of another of its 14,500-sq-ft business aviation hangars, giving it a new floor coating, office upgrades and new executive kitchen facilities.
