The construction of Chrono Aviation's hangar in Saint-Hubert is underway

On Wednesday, October 9, was held the official ground breaking ceremony of the impressive Chrono Aviation hangar construction project at Montreal Saint-Hubert Longueuil Airport (AMSL). With a surface area of 66,000 square feet, it is the largest hangar of the decade built in Quebec. It will be able to hold two Boeing 737-800’s and several business jets.

This multimillion-dollar project will create 40 new jobs in 2020. Since arriving in Saint-Hubert, the Chrono Aviation group has invested over $40 million and created more than 100 jobs.

Subsidiaries of Chrono Aviation will have offices in the new construction. One of them, WAAS Aerospace, will set up its headquarters there in the spring of 2020. WAAS Aerospace specializes in aircraft and avionics maintenance, and can service all aircraft from small Cessnas all the way to large Boeings.

The new hangar will have state-of-the-art facilities and be equipped to be 100% self- contained, with its own paint chamber, machine workshop, and avionics and structural workshop. It will also be equipped with cold rooms to handle food products being sent to Northern Quebec and a 100-seat restaurant to serve meals to Chrono Aviation group employees.

The construction will be carried out jointly by L2 Construction Inc. and MG Construction Ltd., both of which are very proud to be collaborating with Chrono in this major project in the exclusive aeronautics market.
