With the addition of its latest hangar, Lincoln's Silverhawk Aviation now has 80,000 ft of aircraft storage space.

Silverhawk Aviation, one of two service providers at Nebraska’s Lincoln Airport, has completed its newest hangar. The project began last September, and the 30,000-sq-ft structure, which can accommodate aircraft up to a Falcon 2000, brings it to a total of 80,000 sq ft of aircraft storage space.

According to Will Zimdars, the facility’s director of FBO services, the World Fuel Services Air Elite location is also currently undergoing a $550,000 remodeling of its terminal interior. Zimdars noted the full-service FBO, which is open 24/7 and has a Part 145 repair station, saw a 22 percent increase in operations year-over-year in 2017 and has seen an 18 percent boost thus far this year.
