In cooperation with the Jacksonville Aviation Authority and Flightstar Aircraft Services, Michael Baker’s aviation designers applied experience, creativity and innovation to design and construct Hangar 935 at Cecil Airport.
The 113,000-square-foot hangar bay can accommodate a variety of aircraft, including a single Boeing 767 or up to four Boeing 757s simultaneously. The hangar is protected by a high expansion foam system, including under-wing protection. Compressed air and two kinds of power are provided along the hangar walls and by in-floor service pits.
The hangar is supported by an 18,000-square-foot warehouse that serves as Flightstar’s central receiving and distribution center. The warehouse has climate-controlled storage areas and includes a loading dock facility. The remainder of the facility is approximately 34,000 square feet of shop, tool, layout, office, training and other support spaces. The break room is designed to support 250 employees and includes an exterior courtyard space with seating for an additional 100 persons.
The site design includes a new aircraft apron, roadway and parking lot pavements, fencing, utilities, landscaping and lighting. The aircraft apron consists of 14,300-square-yards of 14-inch-thick concrete pavement. Grounding and service points are provided throughout. The parking lots provide spaces for 305 vehicles, including bicycles and motorcycles. Controlled access for truck deliveries is provided on the north end of the facility as well as space for recycling and materials control.
