There are many steps to take in order to construct a hangar at the airports Below is a step-by-step guide to securing a ground lease and building a hangar. Each step is necessary for the proper execution of the ground lease and building process so please read carefully.
- Provide an engineered drawing of the building you propose to construct. Include length, width and height of building. Include a layout of the proposed area, which includes depictions of aprons connecting hangar to ramp and all proposed utility installations and drainage routes. Please also include a color swatch, which will identify the color of the building in an earth tone of tan or grey.
- Building plans and site location will be reviewed by Grand County and then forwarded to the FAA for review and approval. This can take several weeks and sometimes months for FAA approval. While awaiting FAA approval a draft of your ground lease will be sent to you for review.
- Once FAA approval is received, you will receive a notice from Grand County, stating that you may proceed with a survey of the building site. You will also receive a copy of the approval letter from the FAA that will include Lat/Long coordinates of the building site.
- You must contract with a surveyor to confirm the building location. Your surveyor will need to use the coordinates on the approval letter to confirm and mark the building site. Your surveyor must then provide you with a depiction of the building site and include a legal description of the building. The legal description must be stamped by the surveyor.
