Crossville breaks ground on next-generation airport hangar
Officials have broken ground on a new hangar for electric jets and modern aviation projects at the Crossville Memorial Airport. The Whisper Aero hangar was funded through a $1.2 million grant from the state. The 80-foot-by-80-foot hangar will aid in research and development for Crossville-based Whisper Aero, who is developing next-generation propulsory for ultra-quiet and efficient aircraft such as its Whisper Drone and Whisper Jet product lines. The company also works as a contractor for the U.S. Special Operations Command and U.S. Air Force.
