First Wing Jet Center, formerly Montgomery Aviation, has announced it will open state-of-the-art hangar facilities later this year in Clinton County. The new 12,000-square-foot, heated hangar will open at the Frankfort/Clinton County Municipal Airport.

The hangar will accommodate large business jets, and will feature radiant heated floors, LED lighting and ground power plug-ins. The new hangar will be adjacent to a new 40,000 square foot aircraft ramp and self-serve fuel farms. The company also plans a new terminal with conference rooms, offices, pilots lounge and additional event space. “We are excited about this new facility and the commitment the Frankfort/Clinton County community has shown to the continued improvement and investment in their airport infrastructure,” said First Wing Jet Center VP Sean White. “The new hangar and terminal will provide Frankfort residents and business travelers with first-class accommodations and increase traffic to and from the airport. We’re also excited to provide the community with space to hold community meetings, events, fundraisers and more. This terminal will benefit the people of Clinton County for years to come.”

The new space is expected to open in late summer, or early fall.
