Ross Aviation broke ground last week on a 56,000-sq-ft hangar and two adjacent 3,000-sq-ft office buildings at its Scottsdale [Arizona] Municipal Airport (KSDL) FBO complex. The $15 million project at KSDL, which the company said is one of its most active year-round locations, is expected to be completed in the first quarter of next year.

According to Ross Aviation, the hangar will have two primary bays that can accommodate ultra-long-range business jets such as the Gulfstream G650. To further the company’s sustainability effort, Ross Aviation said, the roof of the hangar and office complex will include a bank of solar panels and the 36-space parking area will have EV charging stations.

“Putting shovels in the ground is the start of providing even greater hangar capacity for our customers here in Scottsdale,” said Ross Aviation CEO Brian Corbett. “Moreover, the groundbreaking further affirms our promise to invest in creating facilities that allow us to provide an unmatched level of flight hospitality.”

Meanwhile, the company expects to continue to expand its network of 18 FBOs, with groundbreakings on at least two more facilities expected by year-end, a Ross Aviation spokeswoman told AIN.
