Sheltair Aviation, a leading aviation services company, completed construction on a new hangar and office facility at its award-winning Tampa, Florida, (TPA) FBO location. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was recently held to commemorate the hangar’s grand opening.
The $26 million project took approximately 18 months to construct four hangars with attached office space and covered parking. The new complex adds 77,000 square feet of hangar space and 32,000 square feet of office space to the FBO. This expands Sheltair TPA’s total hangar and office real estate to 300,557 square feet on a 35-acre complex.
“We are excited to be opening these new hangars at TPA,” said Lisa Holland, Sheltair’s CEO and president. “These sleek, state-of-the-art facilities are a game-changer, not just for addressing the soaring demand in aircraft storage at TPA but also for fueling fresh economic growth in the airport’s vibrant community."
The four new hangars range from 14,562 square feet to 33,269 square feet, with offices ranging from 5,700 square feet to 14,247 square feet. With 28.6-foot doors, the complex can accommodate a diverse range of aircraft, including large-cabin class aircraft, like the G650 or Global 7500. The hangars further feature a foam fire suppression system.
Tenants of the complex benefit from Sheltair’s new 336,208-square-foot apron in addition to nearly 43,000 square feet of reconstructed heavy-duty asphalt. The full-service FBO on site is open 24 hours a day, including customs.
Just minutes from downtown Tampa and Raymond James Stadium, Sheltair TPA lands customers closer to their ideal destination. Consistently ranked the best in the business, pilots most recently voted Sheltair TPA a Top 2 FBO in North America in the AIN FBO Survey.
Guests and tenants alike benefit from Sheltair TPA’s top-tier FBO amenities and services, including a 29-foot arrival canopy; a secured, gated entrance; a convenient location across the street from the International Plaza and Bay Street; easy access to major highways; domestic and international handling; arrival and departure services for aircraft up to an Antonov 124; superior ground support; first-class concierge services; on-site rental cars, crew cars and shuttle services; catering; complimentary refreshments and snacks; an executive boardroom and secondary conference room; a flight planning and weather room; and a comfortable pilots lounge.
