Work recently begun on the construction of Hangar 10, an aviation services complex at the Kansas City, Mo., Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport (MKC).
The new facility features overnight pilot’s quarters and a fitness center incorporating separate locker rooms for men and women.
When completed, the 91,000-square-foot complex, designed by Atlanta-based Dye Aviation Facilities, will be on 10 acres at the northwest end of the airfield. A reinforced ramp area will be built to accommodate fully fueled business aircraft such as a Boeing BBJ, officials said. The master-planned complex will incorporate three hangar bays totaling 56,000 square foot with two of the bays capable of handling Gulfstream 650 and Global Express sized aircraft.
The 28,000-square-foot executive terminal features pilot overnight rooms that double as day quarters complete with desk, entertainment center, private bath/shower and a fold-down bed. In addition, transient customers, as well as based tenants and employees, will have access to a fully equipped fitness center that includes separate men’s and women’s locker rooms fitted with showers.
The terminal also will have meeting and conference facilities, customer and pilot lounges, leased office space and an advanced flight planning area. A concierge service will assist customers with meeting and conference coordination, hotel reservations, gourmet catering, on-site rental cars, limousine services, restaurant reservations and event ticketing.
