Dallas Aeronautical Services breaks ground on new 50,400 ft² facility
Dallas Aeronautical Services (DAS) announced the construction of a new facility in Cedar Hill, Texas. The all new 50,400 ft² facility will span over three acres of land and is being constructed in Cedar Hill’s High Meadows Industrial Park. Target completion date for the project is first quarter of 2014. DAS currently operates from five separate buildings for a total of just 21,500 ft² of space. However, the all new aircraft component repair station has been custom designed to provide DAS with the ample space needed to provide all of their services under one roof. The new state-of-the-art facility will feature two autoclaves, two custom paint centers, an environmentally controlled clean room, spacious walk-in oven, and transmissivity test range. A complete machine shop with four and five axis capabilities and press forming capabilities, TIG and MIG welding, an NTD lab, and three dust collection and sanding centers will be onsite as well. The facility will also feature a structures shop, a radome shop, and an advanced composite and thrust reverser overhaul shop.
