New Aircraft Hangar Opens in Chicago Region at Gary/Chicago Airport

B. Coleman Aviation, a full service fixed base operator (FBO) headquartered at the Gary/Chicago Airport (GYY) is pleased to announce it has completed construction on a 40,000 square foot hangar increasing their footprint to approximately 95,000 square feet of FBO and hangar facilities.

The new hangar offers a large, twenty-eight foot door and can house four large-cabin aircraft along with eight midsize to small body aircraft. It will significantly boost the capacity for transient customers visiting the Chicago area and offer short term and long term lease options as well.

“The hangar was built to meet the growing demand in the region for business aviation services, particularly as the hangar options continue to dwindle at nearby Midway airport,” said John Girzadas, president of B. Coleman Aviation. “Once customers experience the convenience and economic advantages of the Gary/Chicago Airport, we anticipate our customer base will continue to grow considerably.”

With this anticipated growth, B. Coleman Aviation has further expansion plans for up to four additional hangars, including build to suit options for private aircraft owners and corporate flight departments. The available land parcels are located on the north and east sides of the B. Coleman facility.

The Gary/Chicago Airport features an 8,900-foot runway, zero commercial air traffic, infrequent ATC delays and Customs will be operational early 2018. B. Coleman is a DCA Gateway FBO and a CAA Preferred FBO.
