YPSILANTI, Mich. / December 18, 2020 / AVIATION NEWS – Avflight Corporation announces ground has officially broken for its hangar and office complex at Willow Run Airport (KYIP).

The development, adjacent to Avflight’s FBO on the east side of the airfield, includes a 41,745 square foot complex with two hangars totaling 30,000 square feet, more than 7,000 square feet of premier office space, and an indoor parking garage. The complex will be able to house corporate jets of any size.

Avflight expects the project—spearheaded by architect Bowers+Associates and contractor Oliver/Hatcher Construction and Development—to be complete by mid-August 2021. Preleasing for hangar and office space is now available. Those interested should contact Garrett Hain, Avflight’s vice president of finance, at [email protected].

“We’re always looking for opportunities to invest in our industry and the communities in which we operate,” said Hain. “This new complex at KYIP will allow the Avflight team to better accommodate a growing customer base of corporate jet traffic looking for an ideal location centralized in southeast Michigan between Ann Arbor and Detroit. Our goal is to be their premier gateway with exceptional, accommodating facilities and best-in-class FBO services.”  

Looking further into the future, Avflight plans to use the additional land at the construction site to build another 30,000 square feet of hangar space similar to those under construction.
