FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pearland, Texas (January 16, 2017) – After months of anticipation, tenants who pre-leased a T-hangar at Pearland Regional Airport were excited to pick up the keys to their units on Monday.
“It’s been a lot of fun showing these pilots to their brand new hangars,” said operations manager Adam Arceneaux. “It’s like Christmas morning around here.”
Construction of the $1.5 million 23 unit T-hangar project is part of a multi-phase development plan put together by Texas Aviation Partners (airport management) and Clover Acquisition Corporation (airport owner).
Stephen Alexander with Texas Aviation Partners thinks the few remaining unleased units will go quickly.
“We listened to what the public needs and wants here” said Alexander. “With the construction of these T-hangars, we are looking to help alleviate the squeeze on general aviation pilots in the area.”
The T-hangars include electric bi-fold doors, 120-v outlets, plenty of space for supplies, and are in close proximity to the runway. They are expected to bring growth and development not only to the airport, but also to the surrounding area, as many of the alternative airport options do not have adequate hangar availability.
