Houston Executive Airport begins construction of new community hangar
Additional corporate hangar space available at HEA when new hangar is completed
Houston Executive Airport has started construction of a new community hangar. Completion of the hangar will bring the airport’s leased space to over 95,000 square feet which includes a 26,000 square-foot corporate hangar opened in 2009.
HEA executive director Andrew Perry, said the expansion is a nod toward a growing industry in the greater Houston area.
“Since we opened in 2007, Houston Executive Airport has established itself as the leader in general aviation facilities in Houston,” said Perry. “This expansion is directly linked to the tremendous growth and interest from the aviation community which has come to know Houston Executive Airport as the premier facility offering an unmatched business aviation experience.”
“Whether you’re an incoming or outgoing traveler, HEA’s 6,610-foot runway, 18/36, is ready for action, and includes instrument approaches, six acres of ramp to store aircraft and more than 800 acres of adjacent land ready for development,” Perry added.
Perry said the airport continues to expand GA services and is actively seeking maintenance, avionics, paint shops, charter and aircraft management.
Houston Executive Airport is a private commercial development established by Ron Henriksen, a Houston businessman and pilot. The airport caters to business and general aviation aircraft. Opened in 2007, the airport has amenities including 24-hour aircraft fueling, ground handling operations, rental and crew cars, crew lounge, catering services and complimentary wireless internet access.
In addition to Houston Executive Airport, Henriksen planned, developed and constructed Austin Executive Airport. Opened in June 2011, the $33 million general reliever airport is located 12 miles northeast of Austin.
Henriksen said Houston Executive Airport continues to broaden its scope of general aviation services. Most recently, the airport partnered with H-Company which provides both maintenance and aircraft management services.
“We will continue to add services that provide an unequalled level professional service to the aviation community,” he continued.
