Aspen Leases New Hangar
Albuquerque, NM, October 5, 2011: Aspen Avionics has leased a 10,000-square foot hangar at Albuquerque’s Double Eagle II Airport as the company expands its test bed capabilities. Double Eagle II Airport (AEG), on Albuquerque’s west side, is an active general aviation airport with 240 based aircraft and approximately 12,000 annual operations.
“Aspen continues to invest in future products, and in order to accommodate the increase in product testing we are expanding our flight test facilities,” says Aspen Avionics President and CEO John Uczekaj. “Double Eagle is an ideal GA airport for our testing activities and the larger facility will be key to supporting Aspen’s growing product portfolio.”
Prior to leasing the new facility, Aspen’s flight test group operated out of a standard T-hangar at Albuquerque’s Sunport International (ABQ) airport.
Double Eagle II Airport has two runways: 17-35 is 6,000 feet and 4-22 is 7,400 feet with a full-scale Instrument Landing System. The airport is at an elevation of 5,834 feet above sea level.
The company headquarters continue to be located at 5001 Indian School Road NE in a 23,000-square foot building in Albuquerque’s TechCommons Business Center.
