Bedford, Mass.-based Rectrix Aviation began construction of a 26,000-sq-ft FBO at Worcester Regional Airport in Central Massachusetts on Tuesday. The $5 million facility will provide hangar space for maintenance and storage, and a customer terminal and conference center. Rectrix is currently providing FBO services at the field from the airport’s original main terminal until the new FBO is completed by the end of next year.
The new operation is the first major facility addition there since the airport’s completion in 1993 and will be located on the north side of the field in the area of an existing general aviation ramp off Taxiway Bravo and the approach end of Runway 15.
The Worcester facility is one of two FBOs that Rectrix will be constructing as a result of a multimillion-dollar contract awarded by the Massachusetts Port Authority in January last year. In addition to Worcester, Rectrix will soon begin building a new FBO at the company’s headquarters on Hanscom Field in Bedford.
