Brunswick Landing – Center for Innovation

Brunswick Landing: Maine's Center for Innovation

Maine’s Center for Innovation is a progressive and innovative location for aviation and aerospace companies.

Since 2012, more than $20 million has been invested in modernizing Brunswick Executive Airport to convert it from military to civilian use and improving the safety and energy efficiency of world-class facilities. Recent projects include the installation of radiant heat in Hangars 4, 5, 6; epoxying of hangar floors; LED lighting on runways and inside hangars; 10-bay T-hangars project; snow removal equipment shed construction; restriping runway and taxiway markings; installation of PAPI system. These upgrades have transformed what was a closed Naval Air Base into essentially a brand new aviation complex.

The Brunswick Executive Airport is part of a broader high-tech business campus that includes a CNC machining center, welding shop, 3D printers, and on-site Composites Engineering Research Lab (CERL). An environmentally controlled composites layup room, curing oven, and paint booth – all designed to aviation standards – are currently being constructed.  An airframes and powerplant (A&P) training center is expected to be operational in 2018.
