Aeromil Pacific Invests In Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown

23 August 201

Bankstown Airport Limited (BAL) has finalised discussions with Aeromil Pacific Pty Ltd to expand their presence on Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown for the lease of a large hangar, which will house Aeromil Pacific’s growing aviation operations including maintenance, sales, corporate and charter operations and professional services.

Commenting on the completion of the deal, BAL CEO Colin Grove said “This is great news for Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown with one of Australia’s leading long established general aviation companies and the exclusive regional Cessna sales agent, Aeromil Pacific, choosing to expand their operations at Bankstown”.

The expansion of Aeromil Pacific’s aviation operations will provide significantly increased capacity with hangar space of 3,000sqm, a dedicated apron area for aircraft parking and a secure car parking area for clients and staff. The new facility is located at Site 521, adjacent to the Bankstown Airport Passenger Terminal.

Aeromil Pacific already operates a first class aircraft maintenance, sales and parts facility at its existing site at Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown, which will now expand to incorporate the new location. The addition of the new Bankstown hangar will increase Aeromil Pacific’s capability to offer considerable additional space for aircraft services and hangarage and extra support which will further enhance personal customer services.

Announcing future plans, Aeromil Pacific Managing Director Steve Padgett said “With ever increasing costs to business aviation using Sydney International Airport, we have taken this significant step in order to provide much greater capacity to support our Cessna and other business aircraft customers with maintenance, hangarage, secure parking and importantly, apron availability and FBO facilities at Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown. Through the use of our new facilities, we intend to make it substantially easier for domestic and international business aircraft to use Bankstown, as a viable and attractive alternative destination in Sydney.”

The heritage listed Site 521 is part of one of the Airport’s original hangars known as Hangar 14. The hangar, which was built during World War II, remains a functional building in 2010 due to its good internal height, natural light, and full width hangar doors providing access from the front and rear of the premises. Our property team have developed an innovative maintenance strategy to improve and modernise aspects of this heritage building to meet Aeromil Pacific’s requirements.

Mr Grove went on to say “This hangar is in a prominent, well sought after location at the Airport. It is great that Andrew Wilson from our property team has been able to match this building to a reputable GA operator such as Aeromil Pacific”. 

Following restoration and renovation work by BAL, Aeromil Pacific is expected to commence expanded operations from Site 521 in the last quarter of 2010.

Ends.
