Construction of a new aircraft maintenance facility has commenced in the City of Pensacola, Florida.
The $46 million facility will be home to VT Mobile Aerospace Engineering, which will expand its international aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) business to Pensacola.
Pensacola Mayor, Ashton Hayward comments: “This is a tremendous project. This has been a work in progress for a few years…when you’re working with a multinational corporation there’s a lot of moving parts to this.”
The new facility is expected to create approximately 400 jobs to the city, paying between $30,000 and $58,000 annually.
Once finished, the project will be able to house a variety of aircraft models — such as multiple Boeing 757s, 777s or Airbus’ new A320 airliner.
