King Aerospace adds two Arkansas hangars

King Aerospace has signed a lease agreement for two hangars at the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA), allowing to company to expand its FAA Part 145 modifications, engineering, and integration services for widebody aircraft utilized by the government.Called KACC ARK, the facility will also offer maintenance, installation, program management, and VIP interior refurbishment."Everything came together to make this opportunity right for us," said King Aerospace President Jarid King. "This carefully planned growth broadens our support for customers and gives us the chance to touch even more lives."In preparation, the hangars have undergone significant upgrades including shop facilities, spray booth, exhaust systems, LED lighting and fire suppression. The hangars can hold multiple, widebody aircraft, such as the Boeing 747, 767 and 777.The hangars had been dormant for years after the closure of Ozark Aircraft Systems, a maintenance center that offered engineering, modification, and custom-built interior for VVIP aircraft such as Boeing Business Jets."These hangars were on my radar screen even before they were built back in 1998 and I was at Associated Air Center. I guess part of me always felt fated to be part of their journey," said Jerry King, King Aerospace founder and chairman.The hangars have access to XNA's 8,800-foot runway and benefit from an air traffic control tow, gated security, and firefighting protection. Each hangar offers 58,368 square feet of space for a total of 116,736 square feet. There is also 78,000 square feet of engineering, shop and office space.The KACC ARK hangar spaces will be ready for occupancy on May 1.
