    Million Air has announced the construction of a new 52,000-square foot ClearSpan hangar at Houston Hobby airport

    The new hangar will complement Million Air Houston’s existing footprint of seven hangars and nearly 99,000 sq. ft. of hangar space. The structure will have a 300ft door and 28ft height clearance allowing for housing of G650 sized aircraft. The company will tear-down two smaller hangars and and demolish a car parking area to make the room for the new hangar. With construction already started, the new hangar is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2018.

    Aviation property development and management firm Aeroplex/Aerolease Group has partnered with Los Angeles-based PCS Energy to create the first solar energy project at California’s Van Nuys Airport (VNY). The project, consisting of some 4,000 solar panels, will cover 150,000 sq ft on the roofs of the four hangars at the company’s Van Nuys East complex. “We’ve been working on it for a number of months,” said Aeroplex CEO Curt Castagna. “The reflectivity test with the FAA has been approved.” Once online, the system will generate 2.5 million kilowatts of energy annually—enough to power 200 homes—and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than four million pounds a year. According to the terms of the deal, PCS leased the roof space and will install the panels, as well as retrofit all of the complex’s interior offices, ramp and parking lot light fixtures to LED. AIN

    Flying Colours has completed work on a new paint shop in anticipation of paint work for Bombardier Global 5000 and 6000 units. A recent contract with MHI Canada Aerospace will see Flying Colours paint as many as 40 Global 5000 and 6000 fuselages a year. The company built the new 4,000 square foot, 1-million dollar facility which has storage, offices as well as the all-important spray bays -two of them-. Flying Colours has been dealing with Global aircraft for about ten years now and therefore, MHI Canada Aerospace believes they have the capability to take on the task of the demand.
