Ross Aviation expands presence at Scottsdale
Ross Aviation has broken ground on an expansive new hangar and office building complex at Scottsdale Municipal Airport (SDL).
The new facility will further complement Ross Aviation’s already dominant presence at SDL which is one of the company’s most active year-round locations. The 56,000 square foot hangar, along with two 3,000 square foot office buildings, will provide a significant amount of new space for Ross Aviation’s base customers at the airport - and will feature two primary bays with the capability to easily accommodate both Gulfstream 650 and Bombardier Global Express aircraft.
Staying true to the company’s on-going commitment to reducing business aviation’s impact on the environment, the roof of the new hangar and office complex at Scottsdale will also be prepped for solar panel installation, and its 36-space parking area will feature EV charging stations.
“Putting shovels in the ground today is the start of providing even greater hangar capacity for our customers here in Scottsdale” said Brian Corbett, chief executive officer of Ross Aviation. “Moreover, today’s groundbreaking further affirms our promise to invest in creating best-in-class facilities that allow us to provide an unmatched level of flight hospitality to make every customer’s journey as safe, hassle-free and pleasant as possible” he continued.

In addition, the company expects to continue to expand its current 18-FBO network from the Cayman Islands to Alaska the months to come.
