Jet Aviation, Gulfstream To Enlarge Florida Complex

Jet Aviation will soon break ground on an expansion of its FBO at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida. The addition, on the northwest side of the airfield, consists of a 40,000-square-foot hangar and 10,000 square feet of tenant office space, plus a 30,000-gallon-capacity fuel farm.

The construction is part of a joint project with sister company Gulfstream, which is adding a new service center at the location, including a 115,000-square-foot hangar. At the new facility, the two companies will share an additional 21,000 square feet of office space and a customer lounge.

The latest annual survey by our sister publication, Aviation International News, identifies top-rated facilities at airports in the U.S. and worldwide.

The FBO’s primary services will remain at its existing location on the southeast side of the airport, which consists of 160,000 square feet of hangar space and a 6,000-square-foot terminal.

“The hangar and office space to be built in conjunction with Gulfstream’s service center will deliver new levels of service to our customers and new jobs for the community in an important market for Jet Aviation,” said David Paddock, senior vice president and general manager for U.S. regional operations, who will take over as Jet Aviation group president next month.

Both facilities are expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2020.
