The new Hangar 10 aviation services complex at the Kansas City, Mo., Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport (MKC) has officially opened for business.
The first aircraft fueled was a Citation Sovereign operated by Cessna Aircraft Co.
Hangar 10, which broke ground in January on a 91,000-square-foot aviation services complex, is operating from a temporary facility located on 10 acres at the northwest end of the airfield. A new 40,000-gallon-fuel farm has been installed and a ramp is in place built to accommodate fully fueled transport-sized business aircraft such as a Boeing BBJ.
When completed, the focal point will be a 28,000-square-foot executive terminal that will feature several pilot overnight rooms complete with desk, entertainment center, private bath/shower and fold-down beds. The terminal also will have a fitness center that includes separate men’s and women’s locker rooms fitted with showers.
The complex also will incorporate three hangar bays totaling 56,000 square feet with two of the bays capable of handling Gulfstream 650 and Global Express sized aircraft.
