Jet Aviation has acquired a share of the Scottsdale Jet Center, which is under development at Arizona’s Scottsdale Airport. The airport is currently served by two FBOs. Planning is underway on the new complex, which will be branded under the Jet Aviation name.

The initial phase of construction will include an 8,500-sq-ft terminal along with a 30,000-sq-ft hangar, with additional phases as required to support customer demand.

“We are committed to growing Jet Aviation’s position as a leading FBO service provider,” said David Paddock, the General Dynamics subsidiary’s senior v-p and general manager for its U.S. regional operations, who will soon take over as president of the Jet Aviation group. “Scottsdale is a highly attractive location to business jet owners and operators and is regularly ranked in the top 15 U.S. airports. Having a presence in Scottsdale will enable our customers to have greater connectivity across the Jet network.”

The new $24 million FBO is expected to open in late 2020 and will bring the company’s global network to 35 locations.
