New hangers are needed at the Air Park and the following is one current plan. There are two views of the same builds on the Civil aviation area. (click on images for larger version)
Four Views of this design is available as a PDF Concept Design
Two Hangers will each have 3 bays that are 60 x 50 feet with doors (50 foot wide) opening to the area between hangers. Aircraft would taxi out the 65 foot space between hangers to the ramp. The ramp is about 2 acres so lots of room out there. This will fully utilize the south portion of our ramp.
The T hanger option was about the same cost per aircraft as putting two aircraft in the above bay. The above bays will handle from 2 to 4 single engine aircraft and have the flexibility to hold larger aircraft. They also have the flexibility to price differently for varying sizes of aircraft. For these reasons we are not pursuing the T Hanger option at this time. However the T hanger option for 8 aircraft would fit nicely on the west end of our ramp if demand supported it and funds were available.

It is estimate that we are $100,000 to $200,000 short of funds to complete the above. We will look for additional sources of funds or delete one hanger bay to come in budget.
There will be a general information meeting to discuss these plans over the next two or three weeks.
