If there is no vacancy for hangars, why aren’t Buchanan Field and Byron Airport building more hangar space?

For information on development, please visit “Doing Business with the Airport” on the Airports Administration page of this website. Due to government contracting processes and prevailing wage requirements, the total development cost is approximately 30% higher for the County Airports to develop hangar space. The resultant rent to cover the development costs would be considerably higher than the market rate. The County Airports has focused on public/private partnerships as an alternative, to bring hangar space about more economically. Airports staff is also exploring costs and feasibility of other options for providing lower cost hangar space.
