AOPA Files Comments On FAA Hangar Use Policy

Wednesday, September 24, 2014 @ 8:00 AM

The AOPA has filed comments with the FAA concerning its policy concerning the use of hangars at airports that have received federal funding. The association wants the agency to offer pilots and aircraft owners more flexibility when it comes to the use of hangars at those airports.

In formal comments filed Sept. 18, AOPA urges the FAA to expand its definition of “aeronautical use” and to give the owners of private hangars more freedom to use hangars as they wish.

AOPA filed its comments in response to the FAA’s proposed updates to policies on the non-aeronautical use of hangars at airports that have received federal Airport Improvement Program funds. While those changes would ease the so-called “sterile hangar” approach, AOPA says the changes do not do enough to meet the needs of aviators.
