Metrojet to build world-class hangar at Clark

CLARK FREEPORT — Business aviation service provider Metrojet Limited is building a world class facility at the 26,000-square meter lot of the Clark aviation complex for its Asia-Pacific operations, a key official said Wednesday.

The state-of-the-art hangar, to be used as parking and maintenance facility, can accomodate 10 long-range business jets, boeing business jets and Airbus corporate jet, once completed and fully operational by first quarter of 2020.

The Hong Kong-based business aviation provider found Clark as a jewel in the aviation industry citing its strategic location and availability of resources including manpower.

“Clark will be our main hub in Asia. I promise you, this will be the nicest and busiest hub in the entire Asia,” said Gary Dolski, Metrojet Ltd., Chief Executive Officer during the ceremonial ground breaking held at the Clark aviation complex.

Dolski said the project will generate employment from “within the surrounding communities”. The facility will become a house for customers and a home for employees, Dolksi added. 

“All our employees will be from here as we are going to hire locally so that we can bring back home Filipino workers from abroad and be reunited with their families. I have worked with many FIlipinos, they are very talented and skilled,” Dolski explained.

The Metrojet hangar will be built to the highest international standards including fully-typhoon proof structure and an aviation specific fire suppression system. It has customer accomodation and storage, fixed-base operator (FBO) capability and engineering support workshop and materials warehousing.

The hangar has dedicated taxi way and parking ramp of over 11,000 square meters and provide a secure aircraft parking maintenance and FBO services.  “This development represents the largest investment made by Metrojet in its 21-year in the aviation indsutry and demonstrating our commitment to the business aviation in the Philippines,” said Metrojet Ltd.
