This artist's rendering shows the 22,500-sq-ft hangar that will be built at the Jet Access FBO at Indianapolis Regional Airport. When completed by the end of the year, it will bring the facility up to 35,700 sq ft of heated space capable of sheltering the latest large-cabin business jets.

Jet Access, the lone service provider at Indianapolis Regional Airport (KMQJ), has broken ground on a 22,250-sq-ft heated hangar. The project, to the west of the FBO terminal, will nearly triple the community aircraft storage space on the field, and provide shelter for ultra-long-range, large-cabin business jets such as the Gulfstream G650 and Bombardier Globals, which could not previously be accommodated.

The hangar, which is expected to be completed in the third quarter, will feature infrared tube heating, ground power plug-ins, and LED lighting. “There is a significant shortage of hangar space in Indianapolis, and we are uniquely positioned to invest in our operations at [KMQJ],” said company CEO Quinn Ricker. “The new hangar will impact a significant sector of the business community—those who are currently doing business in Indianapolis, along with those who are looking to expand in or relocate business to Indianapolis.”

Jet Access operates FBOs at 10 airports in Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, and Texas following a recent merger with Eagle Creek Aviation and First Wing Jet Center. It also offers private lift as the 10th largest private jet operator in the U.S.
