Midcoast Aviation, with an eye to the burgeoning narrowbody aircraft completion business, opened a new, three-story 146,000-sq-ft narrowbody completion and refurbishment hangar. The structure features two 48,000-sq-ft bays, connected by a 36,000-sq-ft, three-story center hangar core, as well as 14,000 sq ft of shop space.
The completion and refurbishment industry continues to grow. That’s the gospel according to Midcoast Aviation, and the Cahokia, Ill.-based aviation services center is practicing what it preaches. It has announced plans to increase its overall workforce by 100 over the next 12 months, and about half of the new-hires will be directly involved in interior completion and refurbishment.
