Republic Jet Center (RJC), a service provider at New York City-area Republic Airport, has broken ground on a $28 million FBO facility.
RJC, which is an approved gateway under the DCA Access Standard Security Program, currently occupies two locations on the Long Island field. Its “west facility” dates back to the company’s founding in 2014 and is home to the FBO’s based tenants with 60,000 sq ft of heated hangar space. A smaller satellite “north facility” handles the bulk of the company's transient traffic and has a 1,500-sq-ft terminal that was fashioned from repurposed shipping containers.
The facility under construction will
replace the current north location. Slated for completion by the end of
2024, it will include 50,000 sq ft of hangar space capable of sheltering
the latest ultra-long-range business jets, a modern terminal with a
café, and eight acres of ramp.
