To mark its one-year anniversary, privately owned Austin Executive Airport opened a new 26,650-sq-ft hangar, bringing its available leased shelter space to more than 63,000 sq ft. Built as part of a $33 million master plan by Houston businessman Ron Henriksen, the airport features an 18,249-sq-ft arrival canopy and a 6,025-foot runway that can handle the newest business aircraft, including the Gulfstream G650 and new Bombardier Globals.

At Houston Executive, the company’s sister airport, the addition of a 26,650-sq-ft hangar brings the total aircraft storage space to more than 122,000 sq ft. The airport’s 6,610-foot runway can handle business aircraft up to the size of a Boeing Business Jet. Both airports have Henriksen Jet Center FBOs.
