Reaches Milestone in $20M, 11-Acre FBO, MRO and Operations Center Development at Waterbury-Oxford Airport
Connecticut facility answers market demand for aircraft hangar storage and provides more space for companies growing fleet and operations in the Northeastern United States.
The first phase of Clay Lacy Aviation’s expansion and development of its Waterbury-Oxford Airport (KOXC) facilities approaches its scheduled completion this winter. Clay Lacy announces the passing of one major milestone for this phase: The first 40,000-square-foot hangar is now sold out ahead of its planned opening in early 2024.
Business aviation’s strong response to the facility expansion has proven the anticipated need for more hangar space throughout the Northeast and New York metropolitan area.
“We considered aircraft owners’ needs first and foremost when developing this project,” said Buddy Blackburn, SVP for Fixed-Based Operations at Waterbury-Oxford. “The overwhelming response has shown that aircraft owners and flight departments have been searching for space to accommodate both current and future aircraft models, and a tailored aircraft storage solution that allows maximum protection and access for clients.”
The $20 million, 11-acre first phase of development will feature a new FBO passenger terminal, executive offices and hangar space that will accommodate today’s large-cabin, ultra-long range jets, including the Bombardier Global 7500, the Falcon 10X or the Gulfstream G700.
While early commitments have filled up the first hangar, Clay Lacy is still taking reservations for hangars 2 and 3, which have already begun their structural steel phase.
