Hangar and Ground Leases

City-owned T-Hangar Leases

The City owns ten T-Hangars that are available for lease by the public. Per Resolution No. 041111-2, tenants may only store airworthy aircraft and necessary ground handling equipment in City-owned T-Hangars. The City conducts an annual inspection in September to determine if tenants are compliant with all applicable policies and regulations. Random inspections may also be conducted per the direction of the City Manager.

The current lease rate for a T-Hangar is $60 per month, although this is anticipated to increase to $90 per month effective January 1, 2012. Currently, there is a waiting list for T-Hangar space. Interested parties are asked to contact the Community Development Department at (785) 263-2355 to reserve a spot on the T-Hangar Waiting List. Individuals on the Waiting List are contacted in order when an open T-Hangar becomes available.

Ground Leases

The City of Abilene allows the lease of land at the Airport for the development of private hangar space. An agreement for this type of lease is being developed by the Airport Advisory Committee and will soon be available.
