Alliance Airport is growing.
Alliance Aviation Services Fixed Base Operator (FBO) at Fort Worth Alliance Airport announced today it is constructing two new hangars that will total 72,150 square feet. The expansion will provide future hangar opportunities to corporate and general aviation users, allowing accommodations to the increased demand that is being driven by a strong economy and rapid corporate growth in North Texas.
“Demand for space at Fort Worth Alliance Airport is at a premium because the North Texas market has performed much stronger than the slow national growth that we’ve seen over the past twelve months,” said Tom Harris, president of Alliance Air/Aviation Services for Hillwood. “A large number of companies are relocating or expanding to sites along the 35W corridor and Fort Worth Alliance Airport wants to be in a position to accommodate their aviation needs. This expansion will alleviate our current wait-list, as well as provide space for short-term growth.”
The two new hangars, which are 32,150 square feet and 40,000 square feet, will be large enough to accommodate aircraft as large as the Gulfstream 650 or the Global Express. The size is larger than most commercial airport hangars, according to a news release from the airport. The hangars will also include adjacent office and storage space.
Current hangar facilities at Alliance Aviation Services include two hangars totaling 68,879 square feet of storage and maintenance space and a 16,551-square-foot FBO offering concierge services and other amenities. Alliance Aviation Services is also a member of Air Elite, a premier network of independently owned and operated FBOs. The Air Elite Network is now close to 80 locations across the globe, and Alliance is proud to have been one of the founding members of this exclusive network.
Construction on the new airport hangars is being managed by McRight-Smith Construction and will be completed in June 2017. The hangars were designed by RGA Architects.
