Atlantic Aviation has added a new 30,000-sq-ft heated hangar to its FBO at Colorado’s Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ), where it is the lone service provider. The move more than doubles the location’s existing hangar space.

“With customers spending more time in the Rockies, and the size of business aircraft increasing, the additional hangar space enhances our ability to service the growing needs of the general aviation community at MTJ,” said Jay Hamby, the chain’s senior v-p for the mountain region. “In addition to its existing amenities, Atlantic Aviation MTJ now features a total of 57,000 sq ft of hangar space.”

The company is also in the process of upgrading its fuel farm at the airport, with the addition of 52,000 gallons of storage capacity to its current amount of 56,000 gallons of fuel. It expects to complete that improvement by year-end.

“We are pleased to be working closely with the Montrose County airport administration to complete these projects and to continue to support the growth of the greater Montrose community,” added Hamby.
