Stuart Jet Center recently broke ground on two new hangars in preparation for a busy 2017 winter season.

Both hangars will measure 25,000 square feet and will be able to accommodate aircraft up to a G-650 and Global Express. The project will include an additional 11,000 square feet of adjoining, class-A, hangar-accessible office and shop space for tenant convenience and lease. The new hangar and office spaces will be available for occupancy in November 2017, just in time for the peak season’s influx of traffic.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to expand and better serve our customers,” said Dan Capen, president of Stuart Jet Center. “These new hangars, complete with office space, will give us the space we need to accommodate the growth of Stuart and our customer base, particularly as we head into the winter months.”

While Stuart Jet Center always expects an increase in customers looking to escape the cold of winter, this year the FBO is preparing for even more traffic as the designated West Palm Beach (KPBI) alternative when TFR restrictions are in place - as happens often when the president visits his Mar-a-Lago home - offering a short drive from the FBO facility to guests’ final Palm Beach destination.

In addition to its facility expansion, Stuart Jet Center will also expand its services with U.S. Customs in the first quarter of 2018.
