Sheltair announced the opening of its new FBO and hangar complex at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC) in Broomfield, Colo. It features a 10,400 square-foot FBO terminal, nearly 11 acres of ramp space, and a 31,050 square foot large cabin class size hangar with attached 4,455 square feet of office space that will serve the local users, business and destination traffic to the Denver area.
Sheltair's latest development is nothing short of cutting-edge; it was built to offer a unique customer experience by combining a number of striking architectural details, including a landside porte-cochere for front entrance covered vehicle access and a 162-foot wide airside canopy with direct access to the FBO, built to provide maximum comfort levels by shielding customers from the sun, rain, and snow; In addition, the new hangar includes temperature control and natural light features through the use of translucent polycarbonate wall panels.
Upon entering the FBO terminal, visitors are welcomed by a building representing Colorado, which includes a beautiful beetle kill pine ceiling, a full-height stone fireplace, striking artwork, and exposed raw steel for a modern flair to complement with the natural elements. The terminal is further outfitted with in-floor radiant heat for exceptional comfort year-round, and a 17-foot high glass wall with exterior sun shades. Sheltair has also provided amenities for the traveling executive with a large conference room available for meetings and private areas to conduct business with Wi-Fi access.
Sheltair guests arriving land side will be greeted with a well-lit ample parking space able to accommodate up to 119 vehicles. EV charging station options are also available for customers using electric vehicles as part of the company's commitment to green initiatives.
"Every detail—from access points and tenant offices to lounges and restrooms —was designed with the customer's comfort, privacy, and safety in mind," said Lisa Holland. "Our new complex and the related services we provide the general aviation community ensures that we can not only meet but exceed the needs of this important and growing market. We look forward to welcoming our wonderful guests to our new home on the western front, particularly as businesses continue to grow in the Denver area and for the upcoming ski season."
The new facility marks Sheltair's first FBO presence west of the Mississippi, reflecting the continued strength of a family-owned company that has grown an excellent reputation for service and safety throughout the Eastern United States for more than 30 years.
Rocky Mountain Regional Airport Director Paul Anslow is confident that Sheltair's introduction of their new FBO terminal will further strengthen BJC's reputation as one of the most important airports in Colorado. "Our local aviation community expressed a strong desire for an expansion of available aviation support services, and Sheltair's distinction for modern facilities and commitment to customer support came at the right time to the right place. We are excited to have the Sheltair team at Jefferson County and know they will make the Rocky Mountain Regional Airport (BJC) the regional airport of choice."
