After delay, work starts on hangar

PENSACOLA, Fla. - After a nearly year-long delay because of the pandemic, the second phase of the ST Engineering aircraft, maintenance and repair (MRO) facility at the Pensacola International Airport is getting off the ground. David Penzone, a business consultant for the city on the ST Engineering project, told the City Council on Monday that construction on a second 177,000-square-foot hangar is getting underway and is expected to be completed by September 2022. The city also has changed to a design-build contract for Hangars 3 and 4, which will include a new administrative office for ST Engineering. Work on Hangars 3 and 4 is expected to begin in October 2022 and be completed in June 2024. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 06/15/21)
