Texas-based aviation MRO services provider King Aerospace will start construction early next year on a new 90,000-sq-ft hangar at its Oklahoma facility.
King specializes in bizliner aircraft such as the BBJ.
The companies FAA and EASA certified repair station offers avionics, interiors, modifications, and paint.
The larger hangar will allow it to accommodate multiple bizliners, including anything up to wide-bodies such as the Boeing 777, and presents the capability to perform green completions, which has long been a company goal.
Forecast to open by mid-2022, the addition will represent a 45 percent increase to the company’s current 200,000-sq-ft of hangar space in the 2,900-acre Ardmore Industrial Airpark at Ardmore Municipal Airport, located midway between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City.
“Covid-19 supply chain disruptions and final planning with the city of Ardmore pushed things back a bit, but general contract bid solicitation is underway, and we’re looking good to break ground by Q1 2021,” said executive v-p Ron Soret, who recently rejoined the company after nine years with Aeria Luxury Interiors.
Several recent additions to its management team have also spurred King to expand its headquarters space in Addison, including a centralized area for support staff, individual offices, and conference rooms.
