Aircraft Maintenance Facility Opens In Delaware

A new aircraft maintenance facility will bring dozens of jobs to the New Castle County Airport. 

Governor Jack Markell and Delaware Economic Development Office Director Alan Levin were among the speakers at Thursday’s grand opening ceremony for Hawker Beechcraft Services Wilmington. The facility will serve as the company’s Northeast regional service center. Employees will perform maintenance and overhaul projects for Beechcraft Services’ full line of airplanes. 

The company received a $750,000 performance-based grant from DEDO’s Delaware Strategic Fund, and will use that money to create 100 jobs within the next five years. Beechcraft will have 35 employees by the end of this year. 

A highly experienced and factory-trained team of maintenance professionals staff HBS Wilmington, which is approximately 60,000 square feet, including 40,000 square feet of hangar space, 8,500 square feet of back shop space and 10,000 square feet of office space. HBS tailored the Wilmington facility to feel like the customer’s home office while their aircraft is being serviced, with guest offices and workspace with full amenities such as computers, Wi-Fi access, printers and phones.
