Sheltair Breaks Ground on $20M Complex at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport

Sheltair Aviation, one of the nation’s leading aviation services companies, recently broke ground on its new blue ribbon FBO service at Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. Sheltair will provide the region with a 21 acre state-of-the-art, $20 million dollar complex that includes a new terminal, hangar and build-to-suit office space opportunities.

When completed in 2020, the new facility will mark Sheltair’s first FBO presence west of the Mississippi.

Sheltair has formed strategic alliances with both Tectonic Management who is tasked with the design and build, and Denver-based Project One Cumming, a division of Cumming, who is providing project management and owner’s representation services for this development.

The 10,000-square-foot FBO facility will be able to park 120 cars, will feature 10 acres of aircraft parking, a covered aircraft canopy that can accommodate large cabin class aircraft, and first class pilot and guest amenities. When completed, Sheltair’s Hangar “A” will provide a total of 35,000 square feet of space (5,000 square feet is “build to suit” office space) and ensures the general aviation community has the infrastructure to serve a vital and growing market that includes nearby Denver, Boulder and the surrounding front range area.

Some 20 employees are expected to staff the new Sheltair facility.
