Madisonville Airport T-hangers Filled To Capacity

Madisonville Seal 01 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/9/13) – The good news is the 14 airplane hangars at the Madisonville Airport are bulging at the seams with 19 aircraft. And, more good news is the airport needs more hangars to provide space for owners wanting to store their planes at the local airport.
 
Having more space to lease means more revenue for the airport and it also means more planes will likely fuel up at the Madisonville Airport pumps, thus increasing sales.
 
At its regular meeting Monday, July 8, the Madisonville Airport Board agreed to approach Madisonville Mayor David Jackson about building at least 10 more T-hangars at the airport. The process could be done in phases, said Dr. Joe Roe, chairman.
 
"We're full, no question about it," said Roe. "So, we've got to open up. When you look at an airport our size, when we just have 14 hangars, the other airports our size have a whole lot more. Their hangars are full. I think ours have been full for the last 30 years."
 
Of the 19 planes housed at the Madisonville Airport, three are new customers that have recently purchased planes.
 
The board agreed for Roe and members Jimmy Riddle and Brad Myers to speak with the mayor about pursuing financing for the upgrades.
 
Airport manager Rick Bivins reported to the board that there has been an increase in fuel sales and general activity at the airport over the last three months.
