Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies Held for New High-Tail Aircraft Hangar at AVP

Hangar 6 (01)

Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies were held today at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport for a new high-tail aircraft hangar.

Officially labeled “Hangar #6”, this 19,000 square foot hangar owned by Aviation Technologies, Inc. is the latest expansion project at AVP, and expands the availability to house larger aircraft at the Airport.

Jim Gallagher, CEO of Aviation Technologies, said, “We are proud to be working with AVP Management and Staff on such a crucial step in the overall Airport Master Plan. Together, we have a strategic partnership to operate more hangars in the near future.”

Being the only high-tail aircraft hangar currently at AVP, this exclusive hangar can accommodate large cabin class size aircraft like the G550 and G450. In addition to its nearly 27-foot tail-height doors, the hangar features state-of-the-art heating and sprinkler systems, overhead doors for easy street-side access, and is provisioned for future office and/or shop expansion, complete with conference room and restroom capabilities, as well as multiple parking spaces for ground vehicles.

Construction on the facility was completed by Rise Construction Company, Jefferson Twp., PA.
