PHOENIX — CAVU Aerospace announced plans Thursday to open an 80,000-square-foot facility in Mesa.

The more than $5 million facility will be located at The Landing at PMG, a 20-acre industrial subdivision near Ray and Sossaman roads.

The company plans to hire up to 75 employees over the next three years with an average salary of $50,000, according to a press release.

The facility will be used the company’s offshoot CAVU Component Repair, which will work on planes from manufacturers such as Airbus and Boeing.

“Their new component repair company will be an excellent addition to Gateway’s booming aerospace industry,” Mayor John Giles said in the release.

“It’s exciting to watch southeast Mesa maintain its momentum as a thriving economic engine for the entire city.”

CAVU was founded in 2010 and has three other locations in Stuttgart, Arkansas; Roswell, New Mexico; and Victorville, California.
