Private aviation will soon have another powerful tool in the Greater Chicago Metro area as B. Coleman Aviation announced today the development of its new Chicago based FBO and general aviation facility. The modern state of the art aviation complex is located at the Chicago-Gary International Airport (KGYY) and features more than 25,000 sf of terminal and hangar areas and a 12,500 sf airside canopy large enough to provide year round shelter for a Gulfstream V or a Bombardier Global Express aircraft.
“The world continues to get smaller, metropolitan areas are getting bigger and the need for quicker, easier more efficient alternatives to major airports continues. Research indicates an urgent need for a world class FBO facility, to better serve the Greater Chicago area and we intend to provide it,” announced FBO General Manager and spokesperson Benjamin Toles. “Our facility will offer concierge level service in all areas of the FBO spectrum and passengers will appreciate the convenient location, just 30 minutes from the heart of downtown Chicago.”
B. Coleman’s aviation complex will include jet fuel sales, luxurious corporate meeting rooms, long and short term hangar space, aircraft maintenance, and auto rental. Additionally, the facility will offer worldwide charter services and deluxe modern office space available for lease.
“Private aviation travelers to Chicago deserve the very best in FBO services and amenities and our veteran staff is prepared to deliver,” added Mr. Toles. B. Coleman Aviation will also become a valuable asset to the community as it creates more than 35 new jobs in the area and expects to generate over $20 million in new revenue for Gary, IN.
Completion of the FBO and general aviation terminal is slated for spring, 2014 with B. Coleman Aviation offering fuel sales and FBO services from a temporary facility beginning August, 2013.
