West Star project could bring 150 jobs
The Grand Junction Regional Airport Authority on Tuesday will vote on a project that will create as many as 150 jobs at West Star Aviation Inc., painting large corporate jets.
The authority will vote on a plan to build an $8 million, 45,500-square-foot hangar at West Star, for a business expansion that will attract aircraft from around the world.
In the first year, the project will involve 40 new jobs paying an average of $52,000 a year.
Most of the hiring will be done within the community, said Denny Granum, chairman of the Airport Authority Board.
