New hangar space for Houston Southwest Airport


Houston Southwest Airport has announced the completion of its new on-site hangar, with the facility now available for lease to aviation companies and private flyers. Measuring 7,700ft2, the building includes storage space, an office suite with room for two custom-built offices, a new HydroSwing door and a private, gated entrance.

As part of ongoing renovations, the hangar will soon be joined by a newly repaved runway. With the airport situated close to all of Houston’s major commercial districts, including Downtown, the Medical Center, the Galleria business district and the Energy Corridor, the aim is to provide better facilities for business and personal aviation travelers.

Len Franklin, manager for Houston Southwest Airport, said, “As the Houston economy continues to grow, so does the demand for hangar space. Private, corporate and commercial airplane operators are attracted to this airport because we are located in a less-congested area, yet we’re still only a short drive from Houston’s key areas. We felt this addition was imperative to better serve the Houston community, and the updated runway will improve safety for pilots coming into and leaving the airport. We are committed to providing superior facilities and services to Houston travelers.”
