“We are pleased that we are partnering with Sheltair to build our maintenance home base facility. This state-of-the-art facility will cover approximately 69,650 square feet of hangar, office and shop space, providing the capability to hold three A320 family aircraft or one A330 sized aircraft. This facility is vital to our growth and allows us to perform maintenance up to C checks on our growing Airbus fleet. Sheltair has extensive experience in the design, financing, and construction of hangar facilities and continually adds new facilities to their portfolio acting as construction program manager and working with world-class design and construction team to develop large aircraft hangar facilities. We welcome their proven track record and expertise to finish the design and build out of this incredible new facility” said Ed Wegel, Chair and CEO of GlobalX.
