Chantilly Air, Washington D.C.’s most established aircraft operator, has announced plans to expand their business services at the Manassas Regional Airport with the construction of a new FBO.
Building upon 28 years of aviation services that include aircraft maintenance, charter, management, storage and ground support, Chantilly Air will construct a state-of-the-art facility to support business and general aviation activity at Manassas Airport. The complex will consist of over 60,000 square feet of hangar space approximately 24,000 square feet of office space situated on more than nine acres of land.
Chantilly Air’s proposed facility will include a passenger lounge, executive conference room space, a crew planning area, fitness center, as well as, additional amenities for transient and local aviators. The FBO will contain office and hangar space available for aircraft owners and operators, in addition to, Chantilly Air’s FAA Diamond Awarded Part 145 Repair Station.
“We look forward to providing business and general aviation with modern, clean and functional space paired with the personalized customer service they expect when operating in the Washington D.C. area," said Chief Operating Officer, Tim Sullivan. "Our expansion reflects our commitment to industry leading services and confidence in the Manassas Regional Airport as it continues to grow.”
“With a recent Economic Impact Study showing Manassas Regional Airport as the busiest general aviation airport in the Commonwealth of Virginia and accounting for roughly 30% of the statewide $1.1bn in economic activity, the timing could not be better to build a premier FBO facility," added Caleb Stitely, Marketing and Client Relations Manager at Chantilly Air. "The benefit of no commercial aviation at Manassas Regional Airport provides aircraft operators shorter wait times for taxi/takeoff, which is exactly what business aviation users want, maximization of their time.”
Construction of Chantilly Air’s expanded facility is set to begin immediately with an anticipated completion date in late 2019.
