The FAA has issued a final policy for the non-aviation use of aircraft hangars at airports which will take effect on July 1, 2017.

The clarification appeared in the Federal Register on Wednesday (June 15) and outlines how aviation facilities – including hangars can be used on airports that receive federal funds.

The regulator said the policy ensures hangars are available when there is an aviation need, and if demand is low, allows hangars to be used for non-aviation activities.

In addition, the policy also details which type of aircraft can be built in a hangar, along with the equipment and items that they can store.
