Hamilton Aerospace Technology, a maintenance, engineering and modification firm that started 57 years ago as Hamilton Aviation, is expanding its narrowbody airliner services to include regional jets. To that end, the company recently refurbished a 120-by 250-foot hangar at Tucson International Airport dedicated to core maintenance and overhaul of regional jets.
Bombardier has reached an agreement with the Tucson Airport Authority that will allow start-up interiors shop DunnAir Business Jet Completion Center to sublease its old completion center at Tucson International Airport. The facilities will total about 32 acres and include a 235,000-sq-ft hangar.
Bombardier marked three decades of service and maintenance support in Tucson by signing a 22-year lease agreement with the Tucson Airport Authority, ensuring continued service at its Tucson Service Center until 2028.
DunnAir Business Jet Completion Center has received its repair station certificate from the FAA. The Tucson, Ariz.-based company at Tucson International Airport already has 44 employees and expects to have 150 on the payroll by this time next year. The facility is located in a 235,000-sq-ft hangar capable of simultaneously holding as many as four Boeing 747s, making it the largest completion and refurbishment center in the U.S.
