New Jet Aviation FBO Terminal Set to Open in August at Bedford Hanscom Field




A new terminal building for the Fixed Base Operator (FBO) Jet Aviation is scheduled to open in August at Hanscom Field. As previously reported, construction on the new building started in July of 2015. Adjacent to the terminal building is a new 40,000 square foot hanger which opened last month..

Finishing touches are ongoing at the new 30,000 square foot Terminal Building.

The new two story terminal building which is LEED Silver certified, includes expanded amenities for Jet Aviation clients that fly in and out of Hanscom Field. In addition to the client areas, the new building contains 16,000 square feet of office and shop space.

The new Hanger can accommodate larger aircraft such as a Gulfstream G650. 
Along with the new terminal building, Jet Aviation has upgraded the ramp area for aircraft along with improvements to surrounding roadways and landscaping.

The past few years have seen a lot of new construction and activity at Hanscom. Another FBO, Rectrix opened it's new flagship facility in 2014 and last September announced General Electric will move it's corporate flight department (which includes 70 employees, two Bombardier Challenger 605's and two AW139  twin-engine helicopters) to it's facility. In June, Medflight had a groundbreaking for a new $17 million facility at Hanscom. The new 54,000 square foot building is expected to open in 2018.

It will be interesting to see if Signature Flight Support (which is the 3rd FBO at Hanscom) decides to upgrade it's facilities.

The more modern facility replaces a 30 year old building.
Stay tuned for more details on the new Terminal Building in August.

I love planes and flying. It is one of my life goals to become a certified pilot, although I donot want to take it as a job. Who know maybe I'll visit this place for some inspiration.
