A major vote of confidence today in the future of San Antonio International Airport, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Western LLC is beginning construction on what is the largest private development ever at the airport, a $25 million, 125,00 square foot behemoth which will stand on the current site of the Hawker-Beechcraft facility, west of the main runways.
The hangar is part of the first major development of hangar facilities at SAT since 2014, where the average age of existing hangars is 20 years.
Western LLC is leasing space at the hangar, which will be called 'Premier AeroNautique at SAT.'
There had been talk in the past couple of years that the existing airport was too small and should be closed and a new facility constructed. This new hangar project is another indication that the existing facility is well placed to continue serving this growing city for many decades to come.
