Potential Expansion for Intrepid Aerospace at PGD

Key partners are joining forces to develop Intrepid Aerospace’s Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) operations at PGD.  PGD has ample airside space available to develop a hangar complex that will service jets as large as 767s, potentially creating hundreds of new high-wage jobs, millions in revenues and exponential ancillary economic benefits. PGD’s Master Plan designates the Challenger Boulevard corridor for aviation-related development and a new General Aviation Center. 

It’s the right time to leverage the state’s $1.7 million grant for the Charlotte Technical Center’s Aviation Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics (A&P) program by enabling viable employers to put these graduates to work.

Projected costs for a 125,000-square foot MRO hangar complex are estimated at $35 million.  To implement a project of this magnitude, more financial partners, federal and state funding are necessary for design and construction costs.  If you would like to receive updates, email KMiller@flyPGD.com, or let us know how you can help by contacting the leaders below.
