Aery Aviation is also expanding its facilities in Newport News, Virginia with the construction of a new 60,000-square-foot hangar and Engineering Technology Center that is scheduled to be completed by winter 2022. The hangar will have Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport runway access and will be located next to Aery Aviation's manufacturing facilities which will increase Aery Aviation's efficiency. The footprint and square footage of the new hangar will also increase Aery Aviation's maintenance and modification services capabilities. There has been such rapid expansion for Aery Aviation each year since 2016 that the company has quickly outgrown the existing facilities. Multiple locations will be consolidated into the location with most of the Virginia workers under one roof once the new location is built.
