The new facility will further complement Ross Aviation’s already dominant presence at SDL, which is one of the company’s most active year-round locations. The 56,000 square foot hangar, along with two 3,000 square foot office buildings will provide a significant amount of new space for Ross Aviation’s base customers at the airport and will feature two primary bays with the capability to easily accommodate both Gulfstream 650 and Bombardier Global Express aircraft.
“We’re excited to begin construction on the Ross Aviation Hangar project at Scottsdale Airport,” said Mike Hunter, vice president of JE Dunn. “We value the opportunity to build a relationship with Ross Aviation, as well as to continue our relationships with Scottsdale Airport and DWL Architects.”
Ross Aviation has been highly ranked for safety and service in recent industry surveys and is quickly becoming known for its innovative perspectives in both the flight hospitality and flight maintenance services. Staying true to its ongoing commitment to reducing business aviation’s impact on the environment, the roof of the new hangar and office complex at SDL will be prepped for solar panel installation and its 36-space parking area will feature EV charging stations.
“Putting shovels in the ground is the start of providing even greater hangar capacity for our customers here in Scottsdale,” said Brian Corbett, chief executive officer of Ross Aviation. “Moreover, the groundbreaking further affirms our promise to invest in creating best-in-class facilities that allow us to provide an unmatched level of flight hospitality to make every customer’s journey as safe, hassle-free and pleasant as possible.”
On-hand for the groundbreaking ceremony was Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega, who added, “Congratulations to Ross Aviation for investing in success in Scottsdale, Arizona. We have an amazing team and an amazing field, which we consider to be a backbone of executive travel here in the Valley.”
