Sheltair starts construction on a hangar complex at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport

Sheltair Aviation has announced it will build, lease and manage a new 20-acre northside hangar complex at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport with FBO services offered by Banyan Air Service.

The facility will include a state-of-the-art 180,000ft² (16,700m²) hangar complex consisting of eight large cabin-class sized hangars and an additional 30,000ft² (2,800m²) of office and shop space, as well as Banyan’s Northside FBO terminal.

Construction is already underway on the US$30m complex with ribbon cutting ceremonies scheduled for the winter of 2019.

“This is an extremely exciting project for us as we are partnering with Banyan Air Service to create the type of facility that complements our respective firms; Sheltair building and managing a new state of the art multimillion-dollar aviation facility and Banyan’s top-of-the-line red carpet FBO services and support to a discerning customer,” stated Jerry Holland, founder chairman and CEO of Sheltair. “It represents the mutual respect two aviation services companies have for each other and a shared commitment to excellence.”

Banyan Air Service president Don Campion added, “Working with Sheltair on this project was an easy decision. On occasion, we may be proud competitors, but at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport we’ve aligned our interest with one another for almost 40 years. Once again, we will expand our operations and Sheltair will grow their footprint through this exciting expansion of the north side of Executive Airport. This cooperative effort enhances the airport, and most importantly, better serves our customers.”

Sheltair is providing unique leasing opportunities for exclusive, private hangar and office space with ‘early bird’ incentive packages available for fuel and other amenities.

As the FBO, Banyan will have a dedicated terminal building open 24/7 to provide FBO and line service for the tenants which, in turn, will allow customers to take advantage of the airport’s 24/7 tower and security operations.
