BA Group and Modern Aviation Complete Phase 1 of Expansion at BFI Seattle

The Business Aviation Group (BA Group) has been retained by Modern Aviation to bring much-needed additional hangar space to their current FBO Campus located at King County International Airport-Boeing Field (KBFI).

The first phase of this development project includes a new ramp and construction of a 40,000 square-foot climate-controlled, state-of-the-art hangar. This hangar has just been completed and turned over to the Modern Aviation team and is ready for immediate lease up.

The second phase of the development project is underway just adjacent to this hangar and has a targeted completion date of May 2021.  This phase will bring an additional 24,000 square feet of hangar space and 7,000 square feet of office space to their FBO Campus.  Once complete, these additional hangars will bring the total capacity up to 100,000 square feet across 4 hangars.

“The BA Group brings years of experience – with a team dedicated to ensuring general and business aircraft operators have access to well-planned and well-constructed facilities around the United States,” said Barry Sherman, partner/owner, Business Aviation Group. “We have been thrilled by the opportunity to work with Modern Aviation and their team on this project. Their commitment to excellence has allowed us to assist them in effectively doubling their footprint here at BFI.”

Serving small commercial passenger airlines, cargo carriers and private aircraft owners, King County International Airport-Boeing Field is one of the nation’s busiest primary non-hub airports.

“Modern Aviation and BA Group share a similar vision of bringing the highest quality of services and facilities to the general aviation community,” said Mark J. Carmen, CEO & president, Modern Aviation. “This project aligns perfectly with our strategy and is an excellent addition to our portfolio of state-of-the-art facilities across the country.”

This is the second project that BA Group and Modern Aviation have undertaken together. They are currently collaborating to offer 50,000 square feet of premium FBO/office and hangar space at Centennial Airport (APA) in Denver Colorado.
