Kinston, North Carolina - February 28, 2023 – flyExclusive, one of the largest private aviation firms in North America, today announced the formal opening of a 9,500 square foot hangar, which will house aspects of the company’s growing Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) division.

The new facility expands flyExclusive’s capacity in their paint refurbishment division, with the goal of establishing a consistent, industry-leading standard for customers across its modernized fleet. As the latest addition to flyExclusive’s dedicated MRO space, the hangar brings the company’s total paint infrastructure to more than 33,000 square feet with the ability to paint over eight planes per month. By having this capacity in-house, flyExclusive’s MRO division can more efficiently address repairs and cosmetic updates, increasing aircraft uptime for the Company’s fleet.

The opening of the new hangar marks the completion of Phase 2 of flyExclusive’s campus expansion plan, including the construction of four major hangar facilities that comprise its MRO business. Phase 3 will include a new corporate headquarters, ground & flight training space, that will house our simulators, and an additional approximately 80,000 square feet of maintenance facilities.

At the ribbon cutting event flyExclusive Founder and CEO Jim Segrave said, “flyExclusive was born out of my passion for aviation. I was a pilot before I was CEO, so I understand the value of ensuring that our jets look as good as they fly. We believe our latest investment in this facility will have far-reaching benefits for our business, including increased reliability, efficiency and substantially reduced costs. Maintenance shortages are an industry-wide challenge. By bringing 80% of our aircraft maintenance in-house, we will further our commitment to exceptional service, reliability, and an unmatched customer experience.”

flyExclusive completed construction of its first paint hangar in 2021, with the goal of developing one of the most modern electrostatic paint facilities in the industry. Some of the facilities were constructed through a public-private partnership with the North Carolina Global TransPark.

flyExclusive’s mission is to become a fully vertically integrated private aviation company. Consistent with the Company’s mission, the hangar opening follows a series of milestone announcements for flyExclusive including its purchase of up to approximately $600M of new Textron Citation Jets and its plans to become a publicly traded company. In June, flyExclusive won Robb Report’s 2022 “Best of the Best” award in the “Jet Cards and Membership” category.
