LAREDO, Texas — Air and Marine Operations (AMO) will continue to upgrade and modernize its operating locations and facilities by breaking ground on the new Laredo Air Branch Administration building.
The new Laredo Air Branch Facility will include 14,236 square foot administrative operations building, a 32,000 square foot maintenance hangar, storage hangar, a 68,000 square foot aircraft parking apron and ramp, an aircraft wash and rinse rack, vehicle parking, hazardous material storage, enhanced lighting, signage, security fencing, and a communications tower.
“This new building will allow for AMO agents to better carry out their Homeland Security mission,” said Executive Director, Hunter Robinson. “We will be more able to rapidly respond to a variety of missions and operations with the enhanced facility features.”
The new facility will resolve overcrowding challenges existing with the current building, will allow Laredo Air Branch to expand operations and deploy resources more effectively, and will allow for better maintenance and servicing of assets.
The facility is expected to be completed in early 2024.
