The Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport has purchased the former Air Charter hangar building at 2525 NE Douglas St. from De Jarnette Enterprises, Inc. for $1.5 million. The Lee’s Summit City Council approved the real estate agreement at its Nov. 3, 2016, meeting, and the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport took ownership of the hangar on Nov. 30, 2016. The building has been re-named Hangar 1.
With the increase in activity taking place at the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport, and upcoming runway improvements, the City recognized the need for a facility that could accommodate the needs of both current and future business aircraft. The Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport will resume the day-to-day operations of the building, which has more than 40,000 square feet of heated hangar and office space. The hangar can accommodate several based corporate aircraft with additional room for overnight, transient aircraft in this fully enclosed, heated space. Facility improvements are planned to allow for additional office space and other amenities such as a pilot lounge and meeting rooms.
