Hawker Beechcraft Announces $14 Million IWA Service Facility

Expected To Generate Over 100 New Jobs In Area

Hawker Beechcraft announced this week a new Hawker Beechcraft Services (HBS) aircraft maintenance and service facility in Mesa, AZ at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. The planned $14 million investment will enable HBS to offer customer support and maintenance in the southwestern United States.

The facility is expected to generate up to 110 new jobs over five years.

"Hawker Beechcraft Services is pleased to announce our Mesa location, which will grow our capabilities and services for our customers worldwide and further enhance our existing commitment to provide the best services and support to our customers," said Bill Brown, president, Global Customer Service and Support at Hawker Beechcraft Corporation. "We appreciate the partnership and support that has developed between us and the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, Arizona Department of Commerce, the City of Mesa, Greater Phoenix Economic Council and the Mesa Chamber of Commerce."

Headquartered in Wichita, HBS is leasing 5.1 acres on the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport with an option to expand to 10.7 acres in the future. HBS acquired a newly constructed 26,000 sq. ft. hangar, and plans to build another 20,000 sq. ft. hangar and a 22,000 sq. ft. administrative building with associated customer offices and back shops on the 5.1 acres. The facility will serve as a factory service center for the company’s entire aircraft line.

Mesa is one of eight US locations where HBS plans to significantly expand its customer service and maintenance offerings. HBC announced in February that it was making a $14 million investment at its existing Indianapolis facility.

"Hawker Beechcraft will be a significant business partner at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport," said Lynn Kusy, Executive Director of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. "We’re pleased to have been selected for this new development, which will greatly improve the customer experience for corporate and other general aviation users."

HBS has 10 existing service centers located across the US, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
