T-HANGAR UPDATE:  04-02-2019

It’s been almost three months since the extreme destructive weather event damaged the t-hangars at Skagit Regional Airport.  It’s been a challenging process for all of us and we appreciate your cooperation as we navigate through the next stage of resolving the situation.  


Short-Term T-Hangar Occupancy Agreements were mailed out last week to those tenants who signed the waiver, and whose hangar has been approved for occupancy.  Each t-hangar has been assigned one of three levels of occupancy as outlined in each Agreement: 


  1. Full use, no restrictions
  2. Use only during daylight hours and during normal wind circumstances; not to be used during high wind events*
  3. Use only during daylight hours, during normal wind circumstances, and with access provided by Port of Skagit Staff only; not to be used during high wind events*

* High Wind Events is defined as winds of 20 knots or higher


All the buildings have been tagged by Port staff and fencing has been adjusted to allow/disallow access based on occupancy level.


If you receive the Short-Term Occupancy Agreement, please review the Agreement carefully, sign and return it to the Port by April 15, 2019.


For those who have a hangar that is deemed unsafe for occupancy, we will continue to keep you informed in the overall process, including updates on any new details regarding the development/construction of new hangars near Runway 04-22.  Many of you have inquired about next steps and anticipated timelines, so we have put together a Fact Sheet to provide some answers, wherever possible.

Again, we greatly appreciate your cooperation and partnership throughout this process.  We will continue to stay in touch.
