Jet In lands at Milwaukee General Mitchell International/KMKE

Milwaukee General Mitchell International has received its third FBO. The recently completed $11M Jet In facility includes a 10,000-sq-ft, two-story terminal with a land-side vehicle arrivals canopy, passenger lounge with refreshment bar and balcony overlooking the main runway, 10-seat conference room, pilot lounge and snooze room, gym and locker room with showers, and built-to-suit office space.

The adjoining 40,000-sq-ft heated hangar with its 28-foot-high-door can shelter the latest ultra-long-range business jets, and the complex has three acres of ramp space for additional parking. A separate 10,000-sq-ft maintenance facility is leased to sister company Jet Out, which operates a fleet of Daher TBMs and a Citation CJ4 Gen2.

The complex was designed with sustainability in mind with well-insulated hangars featuring an in-floor hydronic system, reducing the energy needed to heat them. In addition to LED lighting, the facility uses electrically-powered ground service equipment and its two crew cars are Tesla Model 3s.

“Jet In brings a new level of service to Milwaukee’s business and general aviation community and will offer a wide variety of capabilities to the entire airport community,” said CEO Joseph Crivello. “The completion of the Jet In facility also represents a significant capital investment made in support of our affiliated Jet Out aircraft charter and co-ownership programs.”
