Modern Aviation Launches $20 Million Expansion Project

  • What Modern Aviation plans to do with this project

FBO operator Modern Aviation has embarked on a major expansion of its facility at Denver’s Centennial Airport (KAPA), where it is one of five FBOs available. Modern purchased the former XJet location in 2018, and this $20 million upgrade will more than double its footprint.

The expansion will include, a new 7,000-sq-ft FBO terminal that will replace the current 14-year-old structure, which will be renovated for use as rentable office space. The project will also add two heated hangars capable of holding aircraft up to the size of a Bombardier Global 7500. That will bring the FBO’s aircraft storage space to 102,000 sq ft and its attached office space to 4,000 sq ft. The complex, which will have three acres of the new ramp area, is expected to be completed Near the end of 2022.

KAPA ranks among the top 10 general aviation airports in the U.S. As it continues to grow, so does the need to keep pace, according to Mark Carmen, the FBO chain’s CEO. “We are excited to build upon Modern Aviation Denver’s consistent ranking as the best FBO in Denver, and a top 10 percent FBO nationally in the AIN FBO Survey, by adding a modern facility with additional hangar, office, and ramp space to our existing infrastructure.”
