Pensacola International Airport Wins Commercial Service Airport Project of the Year Award for Project Titan

Project Titan Element 1, ST Engineering's second hangar at Pensacola International Airport, received the Commercial Service Airport Project of the Year award from the Florida Department of Transportation at the FDOT Annual Aviation Awards Ceremony in West Palm Beach in late July.

Titan Element 1 is the second hangar in a planned four-hangar aircraft MRO campus and was completed in October 2022 as part of a project co-funded by ST Engineering, Triumph Gulf Coast, Inc., the City of Pensacola, Escambia County, the State of Florida, and various state and federal organizations. The state-of-the-art facility is 177,000 square feet and can accommodate large aircraft such as the Boeing 777 and Airbus A300. The hangar also includes a 21,000 square foot Support Service Center or efficient parts and materials. Warehousing space and vertical lift modules provide increased efficiency.

Titan Element 1 is part of an MRO campus expected to provide more than 1,700 jobs; each hangar will create more than 400 full-time jobs with an average wage approaching $50,000. It also helps expand the aerospace industry around Pensacola, as talented workers and supply chain businesses enter the area, and provides a career opportunity for military personnel entering civilian life. The project will also enhance educational opportunities at area high schools and colleges.
