Improvements on Tap at Hernando County Airport
Recognizing the need for shelter for heavy iron at their airport, officials at Florida’s Hernando County Airport near Tampa have unveiled plans for the construction of a 32,000-sq-ft hangar and 1.3 acres of new ramp to be built on a four-acre parcel of land adjacent to the airport’s primary 7,002-foot runway. The new structure will have a 32- by 120-foot door, making it accessible by most business aircraft types. Airport authorities are currently looking for a maintenance provider or completions specialist to serve as a tenant, and say they will adjust the floor plan accordingly. The airport, which has approximately 15 based jets, is located in Brooksville, Fla., 40 minutes north of Tampa International Airport.
