Construction at the Greenville Airport

May 16, 2013

The Greenville Airport is nearing the completion of a new hangar designed primarily for private planes. In response to high demand for hangar space, the Greenville Airport has begun building a $400,000 hangar to house private planes. Airport Director Jerry Vickers says that demand came almost entirely from private owners, attributing the demand in part to a lack of facilities for private planes. Vickers also cited that the increased hangar capacity would lead to increased demand.

 Availability is kind of a magnet for aircraft so it will bring aircraft to the airport that weren’t based there before.

The hangar, which was funded entirely by airport revenue, is scheduled to open in June. It will cost 225.00 per month to lease hangar space, and the hangar will house ten planes.
