Richmor Aviation is preparing to build a $1.2 million hangar at its facility at Schenectady County Airport in New York’s capital region. According to company president Mahlon Richards, the 20,000-sq-ft hangar will be divided into four bays (the inner two to accommodate aircraft up to Challenger 600-series size, while the outer pair can shelter aircraft up to Learjet 60 size) and is intended to attract more business jet tenants to join the six turbine aircraft already based there. Richmor expects to break ground on the new structure this summer and complete it before year-end. The company also operates FBOs at Columbia County Airport in Hudson and at Stewart International Airport in Newburgh.
