$22 million hangar and office expansion underway at Fargo Jet Center
The facility will also house Weather Modification International and the jet center's growing aerospace engineering department and flight school.
FARGO - The Fargo Jet Center is building a $22 million hangar and office complex at Hector International Airport, the company announced Thursday, Oct. 10.
The 112,000-square-foot expansion will be used for maintenance of aircraft and their avionics, making special mission modifications on aircraft, and free up much-needed hangar storage space for additional tenant and visiting aircraft.
The new facility will also serve as the headquarters for Fargo Jet Center’s sister company Weather Modification International , and house the jet center's growing aerospace engineering department and flight school.
“This expansion will help accommodate the growing aviation needs of the Fargo region and better serve clients that bring their aircraft to us from all over the world,” said Jim Sweeney, president of Fargo Jet Center. “The investment in facilities and equipment is a commitment to supporting our team members, fostering new opportunities, and improving our customer experience.”
The new complex includes a 27,000-square-foot maintenance hangar; a 23,000-square-foot hangar for aircraft special mission modifications; maintenance and avionics support offices; technical work space; and rooms for composite fabrication, paint, and sheet metal fabrication.
The expansion will also complement the jet center's fixed-base operator services as the hangars will feature 30-foot-tall doors to accommodate large business aircraft.
Olaf Anderson Construction of Fargo is managing the project, which is planned for completion in Fall 2023.
Fargo Jet Center is headquartered in Fargo, and its subsidiary Premier Jet Center is based in Minneapolis. Both facilities offer refueling and ground support, maintenance, avionics, special mission completions, aircraft charter and management, and upholstery and paint services. The jet center also offers flight training and has U.S. Customs on-site.
Premier Jet Center serves as the base for the company’s aircraft sales division, Exclusive Aircraft Sales.
