    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 recently finished an interior cabin on a Bombardier Global Express. They have mirrored an interior on a previous project that Flying Colours did for the same client. Below is a photo of the interior.

    Dassault Aviation is embarking on an ambitious expansion of its global customer service network including new and expanded spare parts facilities and additional service centers, intended to further enhance the quality and timeliness of Falcon aftermarket support. This month, Dassault starts work on a vast new spares facility north of Paris, strategically positioned between Charles de Gaulle and Le Bourget airports that will improve the speed and efficiency of spare parts shipments to Falcon customers throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. It will replace existing facility at Le Bourget and complement a large spares complex in Teterboro, New Jersey. "Optimizing the customer experience has always been our top priority at Dassault," said Jacques Chauvet, Senior VP Worldwide Customer Service. "Our ability to get spare parts out to customers as fast as possible has made us the industry standard." The $50 million, 18,000 square meter (194,000 sq ft) facility will feature the latest advancements in logistics and warehousing technologies, including a new spares management system designed to speed up parts dispatch and provide ample room for future growth. The complex is due to enter service in late 2018.

    Flying Colours has completed another major project. This time, their avionics team finshed its first installation of a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Advanced avionics suite in a Bombardier Challenger 300. The installation was completed while the aircraft was undergoing a scheduled maintenance check at the MRO company’s Missouri facility at Spirit of St. Louis Airport.

    Dassault Falcon Jet is pleased to introduce Skyservice Toronto as a new Authorized Service Center (ASC), allowing the facility to perform line maintenance, AOG support and other services on Falcon 900EX EASy and 2000EX EASy model families. Located at Toronto’s Pearson Airport (CYYZ), Skyservice’s 160,000 sq ft facility is equipped to provide line maintenance services for both local and transient operators. While the ASC hub is located in Skyservice’s Toronto facility, AOG situations are also supported through their Montreal and Calgary facilities. In addition to Transport Canada approval, Skyservice holds maintenance certifications from the United States, Europe, Bermuda and Hong Kong. Skyservice also is an Authorized Honeywell Service Center for the TFE731 series engines.

    Along with in-house maintenance services, including ‘A’ series checks, Skyservice offers AOG GoTeam dispatch capabilities with appropriate tooling and equipment to repair an aircraft in a remote location. Additionally, Skyservice FBOs in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Ottawa have been recognized as Canada’s leading facilities by numerous national and international industry surveys for several years. The Toronto facility is the 52nd service center in Dassault’s global Falcon support network.
