New T-Hangar Construction

Posted: June 1, 2016

Hangar layout
The University Board of Trustees recently approved a capital program for the airport, which includes the design of new hangars. We are currently in the design phase, and expect to go back to the Board shortly for construction approval. Construction is anticipated to begin around October 1st, 2016 and occupancy is expected to be around May/June 2017.

The plan initially is to develop two (2) 13‐unit T‐hangars with 44’ wide door openings, and two (2) 14‐unit T‐Hangar with 42’ wide door openings, all of which would lease for $325 per month.

We have now learned each T‐Hangar row will now contain two additional storage units due to a center firewall. Therefore, there will be four premium units per T‐Hangar row that will have 525 sq.ft. of additional space; one on each end and two center T‐hangars. These T‐Hangars will lease for $490/month.

Mike Eppley, FBO General Manager, is attempting to assign tenants based on deposit dates and is trying to accommodate everyone’s initial requests. If you placed a deposit down, it is imperative you contact Mike Eppley to solidify the following options:

‐ Do you want a 42’ or 44’‐wide door?
‐ Are you interested in a T‐Hgr with additional storage space? (Premium price applies)
‐ Do you want to face East or West?

Anyone who placed a deposit down can request a refund and you will not lose your space. You helped us show the community support for this new construction. However, we understand holding your money for a year may not have been in your original plans.

Please keep in mind, deposits would normally be applied to monthly rent, starting with the first month of occupancy. If you would like a refund, please contact Mike Eppley, FBO General Manager, at or 614‐292‐5592.

We are excited for the many enhancements that lie ahead, and look forward to you being part of the airport’s resurgence.
