[ARCHIVED] Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport plans ribbon cutting for new hangar

Federal grant money will fund the hangar, bring in more than 40 new jobs

KILLEEN, Texas (Sept. 2, 2022) – City officials will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new hangar at the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport (GRK) on Sept. 12 at 9:30a.m.


In 2021, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport (GRK) $10.6 million in Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grants for multiple airport construction projects, including the construction of a 21,900 square foot hangar space for aircraft and Aviation office/facility operations. Construction began in January 2021 and will hold King Air 200 and Beechcraft 1900 aircraft.


Speakers at the ribbon cutting ceremony include Mayor Debbie Nash-King, State Rep. John Carter, U.S. Rep. Brad Buckley, CSI Aviation CEO Allen Weh, Airport Director Mike Wilson and other partners involved in the project. 


The hangar has been leased to CSI Aviation for the relocation of their regional maintenance facility. CSI Aviation is a seasoned air transportation and air charter company founded in 1979. CSI has been operating at GRK since 2019 with one aircraft in a temporary hangar and 8-12 employees operating out of offices in the terminal building. With this new hangar facility, CSI anticipates having more than 40 employees, including pilots, medical crews, mechanics, and administration staff.


Features include six, multidirectional hanger doors that can be configured in many different ways, as well as four crew rooms and a locker room to accommodate an on-call aviation team, Corporate office space and maintenance repair office space. The hanger can accommodate up to five aircraft at a time for repair, has a state-of-the-art LED lighting and fire suppression system and the entire hanger has radiated heating and HVLS (High Value Fans) Epoxy flooring. 


The hangar will support the company’s air charter and air transportation solutions for passengers, cargo, and medical missions, and will be a centralized maintenance facility and air ambulance base.
