Million Air has completed construction of its new hangar at New York’s Westchester County Airport (HPN). The 50,400-sq-ft structure, which features a heated floor, is now in operation and can handle the latest class of big business jets. It brings the location up to 69,000 sq ft of hangar space.
The development is part of a $70 million project that will replace the company’s old passenger terminal on its 23-acre leasehold and represents the first new FBO to be built at the metro New York business aviation hub in nearly two decades. The 22,000-sq-ft Adirondack-styled terminal is expected to open by the end of this summer.
Million Air, one of three providers on the airfield, was issued a 30-year lease on the property in 2016, after an eight-year effort to remove lease restrictions intended to protect small general aviation aircraft from being squeezed out of the airport by limiting the weight of aircraft that could be serviced on its ramp to less than 50,000 pounds.
