Sheltair has completed its major hangar complex on the north side of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE). The $30 million project, which was begun in 2018, includes eight hangars of up to 22,500 sq ft with 28-foot doors that were designed to accommodate the latest ultra-long-range business jets.
The nearly five-acre development just off Taxiway November also has 31,000 sq ft of office space and a private access road for its tenants. Sheltair is providing potential lessees the option to choose between private or community hangar space, along with the ability to customize spaces with build-to-suit options.
"As a three-generation family business, our values are focused on the customer's experience and our pursuit to deliver unmatched aviation products,” said Sheltair president Lisa Holland. “There are no shortcuts to achieving these goals, and our FXE hangar complex reflects our sustained and undivided focus on what matters most—our customers."
Managed by Banyan Air Service, which operates a massive FBO on the field with hundreds of thousands of square feet of hangar space of its own, this new complex will be served 24/7 by Banyan’s recently-finished, dedicated north side satellite terminal. Attached to Hangar A, at 9,485 sq ft it offers a passenger lounge, pilot lounge, shower facilities, eight-seat conference room, business center, flight planning area, catering storage, and tenant offices.
