    Maverick Air Center partners with Charter First

    maverick

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Maverick Air Center (KFSD) has finished construction on a 30,000-square-foot hangar, gained an additional 50,000 gallons of Jet A fuel storage and acquired additional hangar space near the east cargo ramp at KFSD. The additional space has allowed Maverick Air Center to offer aircraft charters and maintenance through its new partner, Charter First.

    Charter First, a Marshall, Minnesota, charter-based operator, would normally reposition its aircraft from MML in Marshall to KFSD in Sioux Falls but is now able to base three aircraft on the field and will specialize in King Air and Cessna Citation maintenance.

    Maverick, which was acquired by Sanford Frontiers in 2015, recently celebrated five years in business.

    B. Coleman Aviation Approved to Begin Multi-Million Dollar Expansion Plan

    Gary, Indiana, – B. Coleman Aviation is set to begin a multi-phase, long-term expansion plan after being granted approval by the Gary/Chicago International Airport Authority Board. The plan includes the construction of a 40,000 square-foot common hangar facility and a ground lease for 11 acres of aviation developmental opportunities.

    “B. Coleman Aviation has been a trusted partner in the growth of the airport for more than two years and we’re thrilled to approve their expansion plans,” said airport chairman Stephen Mays. “There are a lot of exciting things happening at the airport, and this is the latest in public-private sector investments that will help the airport grow.”

    The first phase of development centers on the construction of the common hangar that will be located just east of B. Coleman’s facility. The new hangar will dramatically expand on B. Coleman Aviation’s existing 52,000 square-foot FBO and hangar complex. Visiting and based aircraft enjoy little to no ATC delays, an 8,900-foot runway, the lowest fuel costs in the region, and a state-of-the-art FBO facility with maintenance capabilities.

    Further expansion plans would allow construction for up to four new hangars, ideally as build to suit options for private aircraft owners and corporate flight departments. The available land parcels are located on the north and east sides of the B. Coleman facility within the airport’s secured area.

     “In the past two years, our business at Gary/Chicago International Airport has grown significantly and we no longer have enough space to meet demand,” said John Girzadas, president of B. Coleman Aviation. “We believe that the Gary/Chicago Airport is the most convenient and economical option for general aviation in Chicagoland. Our plans to grow reflect not only where we think the airport is today, but where it is going in the future.”

     Interested parties can find more information at www.b-coleman.com/hangar or contact the company at 219.750.1508.
