Mid-Carolina Regional Airport is Growing

Hangar Expansion

Our airport is growing!  The 21.4 million dollar project includes two 15,000 square foot hangars with attached office space and a row of three box hangars.  The State Highway Patrol will call one of the larger hangars home off Red Acres Road, which will allow us to separate helicopter traffic from the fixed wing aircraft hangar areas.  Aerowood Aviation, owned by Brandon Atkinson, is the intended tenant for the other corporate hangar.  Aerowood has a flight school, service and maintenance center, and Cirrus aircraft sales.  

Charter Jet Transport (CJT), also owned by Atkinson, is currently operating out of a smaller hangar.  CJT provides aircraft management services to owners and offers charter flight services.  They have partnered with the Charlotte Hornets to provide private transportation for team administrators, players, and their families.  The larger box hangars will allow for relocation of current based aircraft and more effective use of the hangar space on the airfield.   

The County received $3 million in State Capital Infrastructure Funds towards the project.
