STEWART AIRPORT – Demand for hangar space for aircraft based at New York Stewart International Airport is so high that the Port Authority is exploring qualified developers to construct additional space.
At present, there is no space available and Stewart Business Development Director Michael Torelli said more will be a plus for the airport and the region.
“With new hangar development comes vacancy and then additional aircraft will be based here. That is the key part. It is one thing to utilize the airport, but it is another thing to have them based at an airport, because basing an aircraft at an airport brings extra jobs, extra investment and more activity,” he said.
Signature Aviation, one of Stewart’s two fixed-base operators, is scheduled to build a new facility that will include offices and hangar space.
