(Janesville, WI) SC Aviation, Inc. began construction on its 36,720 SF hangar at the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport. The company's expanding air charter operation, which includes both domestic and international services, and aircraft maintenance are fueling this project. Once fully-operational, the company expects to increase staffing levels by over 30 full-time employees.
"We look forward to being able to accommodate our growing customer base in our new facility and to offer additional services," said Dan Morrison, SC Aviation Sales Director.
"By expanding its facilities and adding to its workforce in Janesville, SC Aviation is building on Wisconsin's historic and growing strength in aerospace and aviation," said Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch.
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Colony Brands, Inc., SC Aviation specializes in providing air charter (FAA Part 135), aircraft maintenance (FAA Part 145) and aircraft management services. With an operational history that dates back nearly 70 years, SC Aviation is one of the most experienced private flight departments in the Chicago region and its commitment to safety is recognized by a number of independent credentialing and rating agencies.
To facilitate this project, financial and technical support were provided by the following organizations: the City of Janesville, the County of Rock and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
