April 2009 saw the beginning of construction on a new 60′ by 60′ hangar for corporate aircraft. This new hangar is located near the location of the original hangars towards the southeast end of the airfield. One year later on April 16th 2010 a strong windstorm caused damage to the old hangars. The roof of the smaller of the World War II surplus hangars was lifted off of its framework and dropped onto the larger of the two. The related damage sustained to the structures rendered the buildings unsound and were condemned. Despite the loss of the most visible links to the Airport’s history the opportunity was recognized to grow and find new ways to serve the aviation community. The aged buildings will be replaced with new hangars along with further renovations of the apron area at the southeast end of the field.
2012 saw the finish of two corporate hangars. Hangar A is 80′ X 100′ with a bifold style door. Hangar B is a 300′ X 100′ complex that houses three 100′ X 100′ hangars. Two 60′ and one 80′ bifold style door are installed on each bay.
2012 saw the construction and repaving of the south ramp area making hangars A,B,C,D,E and F accessible to the taxiway. Four tiedowns were also installed.
2012 also saw planning and approval put into place to lengthen and widen our runway, upgrading runway 14-32 from 4400′ X 60′ to 5000′ X 75′ . Construction will begin in 2013.
