Flight Options To Open Las Vegas Maintenance Facility
Flight Options, Raytheon's fractional operation, last week said it is opening a new maintenance facility at McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new base will employ over 75 maintenance professionals, dedicated to servicing Flight Options' fleet of over 140 aircraft. The annual payroll for the facility will exceed $6.5 million. Maintenance performed at the base will include light- and medium-level events to support the growing number of Flight Options aircraft in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas. The company also plans to have mobile teams that can travel to service aircraft at other airports in the region. "Las Vegas is now in our top five customer destinations, making it the perfect location to expand what is already the largest dedicated maintenance network in private aviation," said Sanjay Aggarwal, chief operating officer, Flight Options, LLC. "We are proud to be a part of the Las Vegas community. By having a maintenance facility in Las Vegas with mobile capabilities, we will be able to further improve the service experience we provide to our customers."
