Sheltair Melbourne Begins Construction on GA T-Hangar Complex

Sheltair Melbourne GA T-Hangar Complex

Sheltair Aviation, a provider of aviation FBO services, real estate development, and management across the US, continues to expand its FBO network’s hangar facilities, this time with much-needed individual T-hangar units at Melbourne Orlando International Airport (KMLB).

The massive structure—totalling more than 34,500 square feet—will include 30 T-hangars able to accommodate single and light twin aircraft.

The hangar complex will be situated on nearly 4.5 acres of premier apron space and will accommodate its tenants and their passengers with 37 passenger-vehicle parking spaces and two restrooms.

Todd Anderson, Chief Operating Officer of Sheltair said: “The ability to accommodate an additional 30 smaller aircraft with new t-hangar facilities will be an invaluable asset to our Melbourne operation.

“As the region’s businesses thrive, so does the airport. We’re dedicated to meeting its needs every step of the way.”

The hangar structure will conveniently be situated adjacent to the airfield’s control tower with easy access to Sheltair’s FBO terminal.

The project is expected to take approximately 15 months to complete.

Greg Donovan, Executive Director at Melbourne Orlando International Airport – MLB said: “The Melbourne Orlando International Airport recognizes the importance of general aviation to MLB’s success and is pleased to partner with Sheltair to provide new T-hangars for our GA community”.
