Summit Aviation to break ground on new hangar, paint facility

Summit Aviation will expand its Middletown, Delaware, operation with additional modification, maintenance, repair, and overhaul capabilities. The 78,000-square-feet expansion includes a 37,400-square-foot hangar that can accommodate eight Boeing CH-47 Chinook model aircraft or three Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey aircraft; a 9,200-square-foot paint facility; two cold storage units and an additional 11,400 square feet of support and office space.

This new expansion, along with the completion of a recent $2.5 million upgrade, also paves the way for additional corporate and general aviation capacity, company officials said.
