Castle & Cooke Plans Major FBO Renovation at Van Nuys

 - March 27, 2012 (All day)

Cooke Aviation is planning a major renovation to its FBO at southern California’s Van Nuys Airport, including additional hangar and ramp space. General manager Tony Marlow is here at ABACE (Booth H301) highlighting the planned facility renovations and also encouraging Asia-based aircraft owners and operators to visit Castle & Cooke’s eight U.S. West Coast FBOs in Hawaii, Washington and California.

Construction at Van Nuys should begin within the next two weeks and will involve tearing down part of an old hangar. The current 80,000 sq ft (7,432 sq m) of hangar and office space will expand to 125,000 sq ft (11,612 sq m) after construction is completed.

Castle & Cooke will also add new ramp space with easy runway access to accommodate greater numbers of transient aircraft at the Van Nuys FBO.
