Hangar construction begins Monday

PENSACOLA, Fla. – About 100 invited guests were on hand Friday for the groundbreaking of the VT MAE maintenance, repair and overhaul hangar at Pensacola International Airport. Construction of the four-acre building will begin Monday and is scheduled to be finished by February 2018. Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward said the project was five years in the making. While he admitted being an impatient man, he said he's learned that some things are worth the wait. The hangar will be larger than the Pensacola airport terminal. VT Mobile Aerospace Engineering is part of ST Engineering of Singapore. VT MAE, which has more than 1,000 workers at its MRO in Mobile, Ala., will have about 400 workers in Pensacola.
