New hangar round up: Alaska Airlines bookmark

Alaska Airlines has broken ground on its new $40 million aircraft maintenance and engineering facility located at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. The design of the new 97,550m² facility by McCool Carlson Green, an Anchorage-based architect firm, was also unveiled.


The new facility will be more than double the size of the current hangar and holds two 737-Max 9 aircraft, which will be the largest and widest in the Alaska Airlines fleet. The current facility, located about half a mile from the new site, measures only 3,480m² and is unable to accommodate the newer, larger aircraft.


Construction will begin shortly and is scheduled to be complete in the second quarter of 2018. Alaska Airlines has hired local general contractor and construction manager Kiewit Building Group to build the new hangar, and at peak construction, the project will employ 150 people.

New hangar round up: HAECO Americas bookmark

HAECO Americas has started construction of its fifth hangar at the Piedmont Triad International (PTI) Airport. The investment to build the nearly 23,225m² structure will total $60 million and will add up to 500 new jobs at full capacity. Hangar completion is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017 and will be ready for its first customer aircraft in January 2018. More than 16,350m of the new building will be hangar space, the largest within HAECO Americas’ facilities and almost twice the size of each of the other four hangars that HAECO currently operates at PTI Airport. The new hangar will be capable of holding eight narrowbody aircraft, or two widebody and two narrowbody aircraft simultaneously.

New hangar round up: C&L bookmark

C&L has announced a new, $3 million expansion to its facility in Bangor, ME. The project, supported in part by a $1.2 million grant from the United States Economic Development Administration that was recently awarded to the City of Bangor, will refurbish a newly leased hangar, add two new buildings, increase capabilities and create 100 additional jobs over the next two years.


This next phase of growth will add to C&L’s corporate interiors capabilities, a quickly growing market for the company, with a newly refurbished interior hangar. Environmental efficiencies will be added throughout the facility, and the increased hangar space and new storage buildings will allow C&L to service more aircraft at once.
