Quest Aircraft Company plans to add approximately 75,000 square feet to its Sandpoint, Idaho, KODIAK production facility. Construction is slated to begin in August, with a targeted completion by the end of the year.
“We are very pleased that the increased worldwide demand for the KODIAK necessitates the need to increase our production capacity,” said Sam Hill, Quest CEO. “We have been ramping up production of the KODIAK, and to efficiently meet continued demand for the aircraft, we need to grow our Sandpoint facility.”
The company last increased the size of its facility in 2005, when it expanded to its current 84,000 square feet. Since receiving FAA Type Certification in 2007, Quest has seen continued growth in the global marketplace and has KODIAKs in operation in more than 20 countries.
