Pensacola moving ahead on hangar

PENSACOLA, Fla. - The city is moving ahead with the design of the next hangar of the ST Engineering campus, although full funding for the four-year project is still pending, according to Pensacola Mayor Grover Robinson. Lining up the remaining funding for the $210 million project to expand ST Engineering's maintenance, repair and overhaul facility at the Pensacola International Airport is the top priority of Robinson's administration since taking office a month ago. The expanded facility is expected to bring in an additional 1,325 jobs and will consist of three additional hangars similar to the one that opened in June. Robinson said at his weekly press conference Monday that the city would begin design of the first new hangar known as Hangar 2. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 12/28/18)
