are facility issues that must be closely coordinated with regulatory,
airport, and environmental authorities. The hangar project team
should consider the following elements:
Determine the areas available for development and the procedures
for procuring the land. For site selection, consider the ability
to easily maneuver current and future airplanes from the site, taxiway
access requirements, existing rotary aircraft flight paths, and
proximity to airline operations, runways, taxiways, and parking.
The potential for horizontal and vertical expansion of the facility
is also an important consideration, as are options for adjacent
or other air- or land-side locations.
Terms and conditions.
Evaluate leasehold agreements, potential land acquisition, zoning
issues, environmental limitations, setback requirements, and compatibility
with the airport master plan.
Government and community.
Consider community attitudes toward airport development, potential
local or state financial inducements for development, development
schedule limitations, established application processes and points
of contact, and airport or local jurisdiction site- development
