London Aviation Centre

The Heart of Our Operations

The London Aviation Centre, located at Vancouver International Airport, was completed in 2007, and is a fitting home for our exquisitely engineered fleet of aircraft. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art features to ensure our aircraft receive optimal care when they are not in the air.

Luxury Accommodations for Advanced Aircraft

London Aviation Centre was engineered for function. With the latest aircraft maintenance technology and a state-of-the-art fire safety system, our hangar provides an optimal environment to house and maintain sophisticated, high-performance aircraft.
  • Fire-resistant fabric partition door allows us to create two multi-functional spaces, which is useful if two aircraft require different environmental zones
  • Advanced electrical system can accommodate the complex requirements for the maintenance of our fleet
  • Overhead crane can lift 2.5 tonnes of machinery to assist with in-house engine replacements and other aircraft maintenance procedures
  • State-of-the-art multi-zone fire safety system protects aircraft and maintenance crew while minimizing false alarms.
  • Wireless internet throughout the hangar so service technicians can instantly access the latest information
  • Sophisticated camera and aircraft protection systems are in effect and monitored continuously to ensure tamper-free aircraft.

Environmentally Conscious & Sustainable

The London Aviation Centre was designed with careful attention to the environment. During the construction phase, it was our goal to make minimal impact on the surrounding area and waterways. Likewise, we chose environmentally-conscious materials to minimize our contribution to the landfill.
  • LAC was constructed with 60% recycled steel and fully recycled concrete previously found on site
  • Environmentally-friendly primer and topcoat were used on the 64,000 square foot hangar floor
  • Dewatering and Well Pointing Systems were installed to ensure that surrounding water areas and adjacent buildings were not contaminated during the construction phase
  • Cool Roof system maintains consistent heat levels throughout the hangar, increasing energy efficiency
  • Pulse-start lights promote energy-efficient start-ups
  • Low-energy boiler system provides more efficient heating
  • YVR-approved landscaping requires less maintenance, less watering, attracts fewer birds

Hangar Specifications
