Yingling Aviation intends to build a large hangar and increase its workforce by 25 percent, which will promote the aircraft industry in Wichita, US state of Kansas. The 23,000-square-foot hangar will cost up to $3.5 million. The funds would be generated by selling special facilities revenue bonds by Wichita City Council.
Yingling CEO and owner Lynn Nichols said on Monday, “It’s a good expansion for us. It will save costs for both parties.” Nichols serves on Doc’s Friends board of directors. He further mentioned, “Cost savings will come from things such as the installation of new utilities for both buildings as well as using one construction supervisor for both buildings.”
Yingling Aviation has announced about its Ascend 172 airplane, aimed at lowering the cost of pilot training.
