Skycharter is a well-established aviation company offering passenger services, FBO (fixed base operator) services, charter services and aircraft maintenance. Skycharter’s maintenance hangar at Pearson International Airport was constructed by the Maple Reinders Group on a Design/Build basis, providing architectural and engineering design, project management services, and construction services. The hangar was designed for DC-9-80 aircraft, and includes a fully equipped avionics shop for airframe inspections, non-destructive testing (NDT) and both heavy and light maintenance. The fire protection system which falls under NFPA Code requirements was negotiated by Maple Reinders with the Dominion Fire Commissioner and local authorities. The site plan also required positioning the hangar in a very tight area with difficult soils and drainage problems.
