Aviation Maintenance Professionals Corp. (AMP) has announced plans to expand their maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) facility and relocate their corporate headquarters to a new corporate hangar development at Dallas Executive Airport (KRBD), Dallas, TX in response to their growing customer fleet’s needs for maintenance and service. The MRO service center is expected to open in the first quarter of 2020, creating an estimated 30 jobs.

AMP is a full-service corporate aircraft maintenance operator, founded in 2008 by a small team of highly experienced aviation professionals; they have grown into one of the most dependable aircraft maintenance operations in the North Texas region. From routine service to comprehensive maintenance, AMP services various types of corporate aircraft including Gulfstream, Challenger, Hawker, Falcon, Cessna and Lear to the highest quality and safety standards, on time and on budget.

“This expansion and relocation of our maintenance, repair & overhaul facility is the result of the strong and steady fleet growth we’ve had for several years”, said Dennis Moore, Chief Executive Officer, AMP. “The new facilities will keep us well-positioned for support, maintenance and servicing in the growing North Texas general aviation market.”

It is expected that AMP will be the lead tenant and lease a minimum 43,000 sq. ft. maintenance, repair & overhaul facility and class-A office from Burchfield & Partners (Developer) at Dallas Executive Airport. The developer and AMP have been engaged in design/build to work through details of the required hangar, office and shop specifications.

Burchfield & Partners will invest approximately $16.8 million to build the 80,000-square-foot maintenance, repair & overhaul facility on the west airside of Dallas Executive Airport. The project will include two hangar buildings with offices and back shops. The development will be the largest private capital investment in the airport’s history. “It’s an amazing opportunity for the growth of general aviation in North Texas and it’s a great opportunity to expand economic development in Southern Dallas”, Burchfield said. “This is exciting news for Dallas, but more exciting for southern Dallas. AMP is a proven company, and the future is bright in Dallas as we work to make aviation a focus industry in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex,” said Casey Thomas, Mayor Pro Tem and Dallas City Council Member for District 3. “I am excited about this corporate relocation!”

In April 2018, The City of Dallas approved a public-private partnership with Burchfield & Partners for a $16 million hangar development and infrastructure project at the Dallas Executive Airport. Mark Duebner, the City's Aviation Director, said the development is "a catalyst project" that eventually "will drive traffic" to the airport. "There hasn't been a lot of new development at Dallas Executive for a number of years, and we think it's got a lot of potential," Duebner said. "And we're willing to make this investment to get this project done because we really think it's going to kick-start everything we hope, and we know will happen at Dallas Executive Airport.”

As the airport completes Phase-3 of a $33 million runway improvement project, expanding to 7,000 feet, this project will serve as the catalyst for future development and growth on the west side of the airport. The project will break ground in January 2019 and will take approximately 12-14 months for construction. “This is a dream, but it’s a dream that helps the City of Dallas and helps the taxpayers,” said Dallas City Council Member Tennell Atkins, who is also chairman of the Dallas City Council Economic Development Committee. He has pushed for this kind of private investment for many years because it creates aviation-related jobs.

“It’s going to create jobs salaried at $75,000 to $100,000 a year, and those are good jobs,” Atkins said. “The airport is one of Dallas’ core assets located just 6.5-miles south of the Dallas central business district, waiting to be developed.” Atkins said the project could be an impellent force for more development at the airport and in the neighborhood around it.
