FAI begins building third hangar at Nuremberg
FAI Asset Management GmbH, has begun construction of a third hangar at Nuremberg’s Albrecht Dürer Airport.
The €6m hangar project will result in a building with a 4,800m² footprint, of which 4,500m² will be hangar space and 300 m² will be dedicated to office areas. Designed in house by FAI CEO Siegfried Axtmann, the additional building will mirror the existing FAI properties in style, and like the rest of the facility will also be carbon neutral.
The hangar complex is expected in March 2017 and will expand FAI’s facilities in Nuremberg to 14,000m². The additional space will be utilised for line maintenance work across a range of aircraft, including FAI’s fleet of exclusively Bombardier aircraft.
“We have a great team of technical experts who maintain our own fleet, as well as the privately owned aircraft we manage.”
Siegfried Axtmann said: “We have a great team of technical experts who maintain our own fleet, as well as the privately owned aircraft we manage. The new hangar gives us the opportunity to strengthen the numbers and add even more skills to our diverse range of expertise.”
Axtmann anticipates that the hangar will also be used for aircraft storage.
“The increased capacity will support FAI’s expansion into the aircraft storage market. The number of aircraft being put up for sale in Europe is increasing and there is a growing demand for air conditioned hangar space in which to keep them in mint condition before a sale take place,” added Axtmann.
