BETA Technologies applies for Act 250 permit for $122M facility

BETA Technologies, the pioneering electric aircraft company based at Burlington International Airport, has applied for an amendment to an existing Act 250 permit to build a $122 million, 344,000-square foot aircraft assembly facility on about 50 acres at the airport in South Burlington.

Act 250 is Vermont’s land use law that governs all major development in the state.

BETA Technologies has created an electric aircraft capable of carrying cargo and people and announced last May that it expected the assembly facility to create 500 jobs.

Kyle Clark, founder and chief executive officer of BETA, said in a conference call in May 2021 the facility will produce between 250 and 400 aircraft per year. Clark said at the time he hoped to break ground on the facility located off of Valley Road as soon as September 2021.
