Hangar Space Rentals

I recently ran an informal poll to find out what pilots are paying to rent hangar space near major Texas cities, here’s what they had to say:

Houston Area

SGR $483-600/month

KIWS $420 – 550

T41 $400 – 500

KLVJ $415

DWH $375 – 450

11R $250

T51 $300

HTV $180 – 400; waiting list

KCXO $250 – 500

GLS $300

Over a year ago, it was nearly impossible to get a hangar space anywhere in Houston… Pearland just opened brand new hangars

 

Austin Area

I’m on 2 waiting lists and have been for over a year.

I’m on a few lists and have been for a couple of years.

Been on the waiting list ad EDC for close to 4 years now. I hear prices for a T are around $500.

$150 in a community hangar in Rockdale. We are full now.

KRYW $300/month bulk hangars

GTU $400+

AUS $500 – 700

1T8 $200 – 250 T-hangars

I rent community space for $425 at GTU and I’m on three t hangar lists

XS79 2 T-hangars currently available & will soon have 6 more; $250 – 300/m

 

DFW Area

KDTO $325/month enclosed T-hangar; waiting list

KTKI $400 T-hangar

KHQZ $280 T-hangar; 1+ year wait list for any hangar

KGPM $215 T-hangar

DTO $420 for shared hanger; waiting list

KLNC $315 50 ft box hangar

50F $225 T-hangar, waiting list

52F $150 T-hangar, $325 enclosed hangar

T67 $350 – 390 T-hangars

Rives Airpark is planning to open up in the next few months. They will have 26 hangars available for rent, in the $400 range.

I found a lack of hanger space when I moved to DFW 7 years ago. Many waiting lists required someone to pass away to get availability, so I bought at T56 and enjoy a 3000′ hangar in my back yard

Lack of affordable/available hangar space is why I haven’t bought another plane

If you’re tired of throwing money away on rent, let me help you find a hangar-home to call your own!

Happy flying,

The Home Stretch

It’s probably the last thing on your mind when planning a custom home, but one of the first things you should choose is the color of your gutters. Turns out, it’s easier to match your exterior paint to the gutters than vice versa. Of course, we didn’t learn this until last week when we met with gutter contractors for bids, months after our house was painted. We lucked out, one of the gutter colors happened to be a close match to our trim.

In spite of attending Built Green Custom Home‘s classes, reading everything we could find, and having the support of a knowledgable consultant, this is just one of many lessons learned in hindsight building through an Owner Participation Program. The good news is, we haven’t made any serious mistakes along the way (yet…knock wood!) but there are definitely things we’d do differently if we could start over again. Experience truly is the best teacher.

Gutters aren’t the only additions to our house this month.  We now have electricity, a running well, bathroom tile,

light fixtures, garage door openers, and aviation themed ceiling fans.

The biggest project currently underway is our aerobic septic system which has a complex design due to the bathroom in our hangar.  Still a lot to accomplish before move-in, both inside and out, will keep you posted.

Happy flying,
