Arizona-based Cutter Aviation has broken ground on an additional hangar complex at its FBO at Phoenix Deer Valley Airport. The $12 million, 60,000-sq-ft facility will consist of three 20,000-sq-ft bays able to accommodate aircraft up to a Gulfstream G700, along with 3,700 sq ft of office space. It will be situated near Taxiway Charlie on the west side of the current facility.
As the single service provider on the field, the hangar will bring the location to more than 85,000 sq ft of aircraft shelter. The new facility is expected to be completed early next year. Around that time, the company will start work on a second, identical complex to be located on the east side of the Phillips 66-branded facility.
“We are excited to begin construction of this new hangar complex at Phoenix Deer Valley Airport,” said Will Cutter, president and CEO of the family-owned business, which will be celebrating its 95th anniversary next year. He added that there has not been any new construction at the busy general aviation airport in nearly two decades, adding, “The opportunity to invest, grow, create new jobs, and support regional economic development for the city of Phoenix has never been greater.”
