The Pitt-Greenville Airport on Thursday will break ground on five new hangers to house corporate aircraft. According to a news release, four hangers will be about 12,000 square feet and capable of housing the largest Gulfstream aircraft. A fifth hanger will be 6,400 square feet. The project is paid for with CARES Act funding provided by the Federal Aviation Administration. Pitt-Greenville Airport Executive Director Bill Hopper said in the release that there’s a strong demand for hangers to house corporate aircraft and that these types of aircraft are critical to the growth and economic vitality of the airport and Eastern North Carolina. The hanger construction will be complete in February 2023.
