Signature Flight Support, a BBA Aviation company, announced the opening of its newly constructed state-of-the-art FBO at Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC).
Signature San Jose spans 29 acres with 18.5 acres of ramp space and features 240,000 sq. ft. of hangar space with one 60,000 sq. ft. hangar capable of housing two 767 aircraft. Transient and tenant passengers and flight crews can enjoy a 10,000 sq. ft. executive terminal. Crew facilities offer a comfortable respite with multiple seating areas and quiet rooms along with state-of-the art flight planning facilities.
The LEED designed facility takes advantage of the latest environmentally-friendly technologies and materials such as high efficiency lighting in the hangars. The project was also noted for its high level of construction waste material recycling, of which some 80 percent will be repurposed.
"Signature San Jose is stunning and state-of-the-art in every way and is a reflection of Silicon Valley itself. We are immensely proud to become part of the community," Maria Sastre, President and COO for Signature Flight Support, stated. "I would like to personally thank the many key leaders in San Jose who made this project possible, especially Mayor Sam Liccardo, Vice Mayor Rose Herrera, and their fellow San Jose City Councilmembers, City Manager Norberto Duenas, SJC Director Kim Becker and her great staff, and the SJC Airport Commissioners. Our long-term view of business and general aviation is evidenced by this significant investment in the community. We look forward to welcoming business and leisure travelers to Silicon Valley and the entire Bay Area and we are especially delighted to support travelers attending Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium.”
The facility celebrates technology for which Silicon Valley is known. It has partnered with The Tech Museum of Innovation and will showcase technology exhibits throughout the year. Passengers and crews can also wind down in the Tech Garden which offers a green space lounge with relaxing seating and shade adjacent to the FBO terminal.
Signature San Jose is proud to support many local community organizations including City Year, Goodwill of Silicon Valley, Computer History Museum, San Jose/ Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce, Silicon Valley Leadership Group, San Jose/Silicon Valley Bike Coalition and the Silicon Valley Hispanic Foundation.
