Luxury Hangar Campus Planned Near Houston

 - March 4, 2020, 5:01 PM

Sky Harbour Group is developing a campus of private hangars for business aircraft based at Sugar Land Regional Airport (SGR) near Houston. The first phase, which it expects to open in June, comprises eight hangars, followed by six hangars in the second phase, a Sky Harbour spokeswoman told AIN this week.

What makes the hangar project different is each climate-controlled hangar will be accessible only to the leaseholder and comes with a suite for offices and passenger lounge and is equipped with a kitchen, laundry, and bath. Hangars come in three sizes: 14,000 sq ft, the largest, with a 2,000-sq-ft suite; 8,000 sq ft with a 1,600-sq-ft suite; and 7,000 sq ft with a 1,400-sq-ft suite. The spokeswoman would not disclose lease rates though she said they are comparable to hangar lease rates in the area.

While not an FBO, Sky Harbour will have dedicated and trained line service crews for hangar tenants, as well as towing, access to discounted fuel, and in-hangar aircraft and vehicle detailing. Concierge passenger services include baggage handling and catering coordination, in addition to other services such as interior suite and hangar cleaning. Additional hangar development projects by Sky Harbour are currently underway in Miami and Nashville, Tennessee, according to the spokeswoman.
