This Friday the first airplane will land at Commercial Jet and work will begin on that aircraft in two weeks.
Renovations are currently underway on the facility with the first phase to be complete when Commercial Jet moves in.
The company says it's looking to increase clientele and the number of projects it completes this year. That goal was made possible by the size of this facility that's why the company was able to expand here.
Once Commercial Jet is up to full speed it will have the capacity to run up to 12 lines of aircrafts, which would make it the largest passenger to cargo conversion facility in the world.
If you are interested in working for Commercial Jet the hiring process is in full swing. So far the company has hired about 45 people. By January they plan to employ between 150 to 200.
