Standard’s new facility includes a 24,000 sq ft hangar, luxurious lobby and crew amenities. This location can handle nearly any aircraft with around-the-clock call out service, customs clearance available 24/7 and a sizeable hangar that is the largest free-span building in the Caribbean. Designed with pilots in mind, the Standard Aviation facility is complete with an inviting crew rest area, well-appointed flight planning room and extra amenities like a full kitchen, laundry machines and dishwashers. Luxury facilities matched with white-glove service provide clients and crews an experience fit for the locale.
