Yingling Aviation has added its 13th hangar at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport (KICT) to accommodate the expansion of its MRO activities, as well as its government programs. The FBO/MRO acquired the 22,000-sq-ft hangar located at the north end of KICT. It is the eighth hangar Yingling has added in the past three years.
The building features two levels of office and hangar space. Additionally, Yingling will be hiring more than 20 employees with the expansion—airframe and powerplant mechanics, avionics technicians, and program managers.
“The fact that Yingling has flourished during the pandemic and after is proof that our dedication to superior technical support and customer service leads to success and growth,” said Yingling president Andrew Nichols. “The rate of increase of new customers and percentage of repeat business makes everyone at Yingling very, very proud. As we continue to expand our capabilities and support, in response to strong customer demand, this hangar was the perfect solution to ensure our customers continue to receive world-class service.”
The hangar will be fully operational by March.
