GULFPORT – Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 6 to celebrate the completed construction of an eight-bay T-Hangar building for small, private aircraft.
The hangar is located in the general aviation area of the Gulfport airport. Mississippi Department of Transportation paid for $250,000 of the half million dollar project through its multi-modal program.
Airport Director Clay Williams said while the new hangars will benefit aviation, they will also provide a boost for the airport itself.
“We were pleased to have the opportunity to construct this infrastructure,” Williams said. “It brings more traffic in and out of the airport, more people buying fuel, and more takeoffs and landings here at Gulfport-Biloxi International.”
The 9,000 square foot hangar facility is open for leasing. Hangar spaces range in size from 1,100 to 1,500 square feet.
