Texas-based Galaxy FBO is continuing to expand, breaking ground on what will be its third full-service FBO. To be located at Dallas-area Addison Airport (ADS), its design will be similar to the recently-opened facility at Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport as the company is employing the same engineering and architectural firms. Galaxy FBO also operates a Houston heliport.
The new FBO will be on the southeast side of ADS at the end of Runway 33 and will consist of a 20,000-sq-ft terminal featuring a pilot lounge with showers and snooze room, passenger lounge, on-site car rental, and concierge. A pair of 38,000 sq ft hangars and a 30,000 sq ft hangar will be able to accommodate the latest big business jets.
The facility will also house sister company Wing Aviation’s charter operation in the metroplex, which will relocate from its current hangar at ADS. When completed in the summer of 2021, it will become the third FBO at the airport, offering the largest uninterrupted ramp on the field.
"We're excited to expand the Galaxy FBO out of the Houston area to increase our overall presence in Texas," Jeremy Gee, managing director of parent company Black Forest Aviation told AIN. “With the area surrounding the city of Addison continuing to flourish, our new facility will provide the much-needed hangar space for our corporate and general aviation clients, while providing more job opportunities."
