Sky Harbour Plans Colorado Facility

Continuing the growth of its boutique hangar complex model, New York-based Sky Harbour expects to break ground at its latest location—Denver Centennial Airport—in the third quarter. Intended to occupy 22 acres on the south side of the field, on the Centennial Interport leasehold, the first phase of the facility that is scheduled to open in mid-2022 will consist of 13 privately-leaseable hangars totaling 128,000 sq ft and capable of sheltering the latest ultra-long-range business jets. A second phase of development will include nine more hangars, for an additional 97,600 sq ft of aircraft storage.

As with the company’s existing locations at Nashville International Airport, Miami Opa-Locka Executive Airport, and Sugar Land Regional Airport in Houston, each hangar houses one tenant, eliminating the need for aircraft stacking by expected use, and its subsequent extraneous movements, thus lessening the risk of hangar rash incidents. Each hangar includes indoor and outdoor vehicle parking, and a customizable interior office suite with private lounges, kitchens, bathrooms, showers, and laundry. Ground handling is performed by the facility’s own dedicated line staff.

“We aim to be the best home-base in aviation, bar none, maximizing the value that owners derive from their aircraft,” said CEO Tal Keinan. “Sky Harbour is excited to be at Centennial, among the most active and best-managed airports in the United States."
