Attention all readers of HangarSphere magazine and blog. Be sure to add your input to the national dialogue regarding the rules as to what you can keep in your rented and privately owned hangar at airports that accept Federal funding and must abide by their grant assurances.
Under current rules, non-aviation items are not permitted in your hangar. Although written, these rules have been ignored by airport authorities, managers, and tenants and for good reason. This particular rule makes no sense and only a few cases of outlandish abuse have taken place. If enforced, this means your bicycle used to get to your friends hangar three hangar alleys over, your golf cart outfitted as a tug, and even your American Flag must be removed from your hangar. This will affect corporate flight departments, FBOs, T-hangar renters, and even private hangars built on leased airport land. For more in-depth information, please read this blog post.
