Construction Set to Begin on New 10,000 Square Foot Hangar at Morgantown Municipal Airport
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. –The Morgantown Municipal Airport (MGW) has leased approximately 47,300 square feet of land to Ground Speed Aviation. With this new lease GSA will begin construction of a new 10,000 square foot hangar. The construction will be completed by Reclaim Company LLC., a GSA sister company, based out of Fairmont.
“Ground Speed Aviation, LLC is happy to be working with the City of Morgantown and MGW to bring thousands of square feet of new hangar space to serve the airport, “said Reclaim President, RJ Williams. “While GSA will not be directly operating the businesses, it hopes the addition of these new spaces will not only retain existing aircraft maintenance and storage companies but attract new businesses and employment to MGW.”
Reclaim specializes in site preparation, utilities, and excavation. Work on the site will begin by removing the last of the World War II era T-hangars followed by the construction of a new 10,000 square foot hanger. Construction of the hangar is anticipated to be complete by Winter 2023.
“We are excited to break ground on this new addition to the airport,” said Jon Vrabel, Morgantown Municipal Airport director. “With Ground Speed Aviation coming on board, it will create a variety of new jobs as we start moving tenants into the completed structure.”
Ground Speed Aviation will provide a location and opportunity for local companies to sublease and perform aircraft maintenance while at the airport. At this time no tenants have been determined.
