First Wing Jet Center, the fixed-base operator (FBO) at Indianapolis Executive Airport in Zionsville, Ind. (TYQ), has begun construction on 12 private hangars on the west side of their facility. The hangars are expected to be complete this fall and are currently available for lease and/or sale.
“The growth at Indianapolis Executive Airport is a direct result of being located between the fast-growing Hamilton and Boone Counties just north of Indianapolis,” said Sean White, Vice President and General Manager of First Wing Jet Center. “We are the busiest non-commercial airport in the state, and we’re running out of space. We’ve been getting inquiries about hangar space for years, and with the two new hangars, we’ll be closer to meeting that demand.”
First Wing currently stores more than 100 aircraft, including both personal airplanes and corporate jets.
Details on the Executive Hangars:
- 65’ wide x 60’ deep
- 18’ tall x 64’ wide Schweiss Bifold Electric Doors
- Gas, water, sewer and electric
- Fully insulated with radiant
- Bathroom with toilet and sink
- Ability to be customized post-construction
“The hangars we are building are unique in this part of the state,” said White. “The majority of private hangars currently available in the area are smaller, T-hangars, or larger shared hangars. The Executive Hangars will provide a new option for customers who own large, or multiple, airplanes that previously wasn’t available in central Indiana. Another unique and appealing aspect of the hangars is the ability to add office space, lofts and more.”
