One year after opening its FBO terminal at Denver Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, Sheltair has broken ground on a new hangar with attached office space. The $10 million project will provide a second 30,240-sq-ft hangar that will mirror an existing building.  

To be equipped with a 210-foot-wide and 28.6-foot-high door, the hangar will be able to accommodate the latest generation of large-cabin business jets, including the Gulfstream G650 and Bombardier Global 6500. In addition, the new facilities will include 6,000 sq ft of office space for tenants, as well as 16 covered and 94 total auto parking spaces.

Sheltair said the new hangar facilities will help it to meet the busy tenant and transient traffic that has come with the strengthening economy in the region.

As it broke ground on the hangar project, Sheltair commemorated the one-year anniversary of its new FBO terminal at the Rocky Mountain airport. "As a third-generation family business committed to providing outstanding service, we are focused on our guests' experience," said Sheltair president Lisa Holland.
