Sheltair breaks ground on new FBO at Colorado airport

Fixed-base operator (FBO) network Sheltair has broken ground on its new $20 million FBO facility at Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (KBJC).

The 21-acre facility includes a 10,000 square feet terminal fully equipped with pilot and passenger amenities, a canopy for aircraft to arrive at, and 35,000 square feet hangar, able to shelter business jets of all sizes in a heated environment.

“We are proud and honored to serve the aviation community and the regional economy that depends on a strong and dynamic KBJC,” said company founder, chairman, and CEO Jerry Holland.

“When we made the strategic decision to expand our company’s presence westward, we quickly realized that Jefferson County would be a welcoming partner because its public and private leadership recognizes the power of general aviation.”

The Colorado FBO, set to be completed by summer next year, is the company’s first away from the East Coast, with the other sites located in New York, Georgia and Florida.

Additional features of the new FBO include office space stretching 5.000 square feet, 10 acres of aircraft ramp space and parking space for up to 120 vehicles.
