Goshen Municipal Airport in the US is planning to build a new commercial hangar in order to address the increasing demand for flights.

With more and more flights being scheduled, it is reported that hangar space has become difficult to find.

In order to find a solution to the problem, H-2 had approached the airport on building a new $1m hangar east of the Indiana Helicopters hangar. It would add 12,000ft² of space.

The investment requires the construction of a 234ft-long taxiway to link the hangar to the existing taxiway.

Goshen Municipal Airport manager Randy Sharkey was quoted by WSBT as saying: “We have a number of requests for tenants that fly in, operators that fly in.

“We’re thrilled to see somebody come along like H-2 aviation, and build a hangar at the airport, and we can take care of the customers.

“The city will provide the funding to build that taxiway, that will connect that tenant’s ramp.”

More aircraft would be flying in and out of the city as the result of building the new hangar, which is expected to increase fuel sales for the airport.

Goshen Municipal Airport is a public use airport situated 6km southeast of the central business district of Goshen, a city in Elkhart County, Indiana. It is owned by the Goshen Board of Aviation Commissioners.

The airport, which has two runways, covers an area of 178ha at an elevation of 252m above mean sea level.
