New Aerolease Project Takes Off at Van Nuys Airport



 (Van Nuys, Calif. – Aug. 4, 2016) Aeroplex/Aerolease Group—a leading aviation property development, management and consulting firm—broke ground July 1, 2016 on a $7.5 million, 3-acre development project at Los Angeles’ Van Nuys Airport featuring exclusive hangar, office, shop and private terminal areas.

The new facility will complement the company’s adjacent 6-acre leasehold that was developed in 2008 as one of Southern California’s premier private aviation centers.

Encompassing 123,162 square feet, the expansion will include:

  • 38,000 square feet of hangar space to accommodate a full range of business aircraft, turbo-props and executive jets
  • 8,500 square feet of shop, office and terminal space with luxurious conference, kitchen and lounge facilities that can be fully customized and have the latest security systems
  • Over 55,000 square feet of new aircraft ramp and staging areas
  • A private, gated/secure and exclusive parking lot to accommodate over 45 vehicles

“Aeroplex/Aerolease Group is proud to serve as one of Van Nuys Airport’s longest-standing tenants and a vital contributor to the local economy,” said company President and CEO Curt Castagna. “Our new development will not only create approximately 100 high-skilled jobs, but continue our company’s 40-year history of serving business aviation’s diverse needs.”

Scheduled for completion in March 2017, the development honors the legacy of the late Milton A. Widelitz, who founded Aeroplex/Aerolease Group in 1977 and helped form the non-profit Van Nuys Airport Association in 1982. He was a strong supporter of preserving airport jobs and businesses, as well providing educational opportunities for future aviation professionals.
