The 83,100-square-foot building complex includes a main wing assembly hangar, warehouse for parts storage and distribution, paint booth and office space.

The new production facility is located at the company’s headquarters at the Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO) in Greensboro, North Carolina. Construction on the $24.3 million building began in July 2019 and was completed in September 2020.
