Arkansas Airport Running Out Of Places To Park Planes
Sure, you can land at Adams Field in Little Rock, AR. But good
luck finding a place to park.
That word comes from leaders of the aviation business community
who told the Associated Press there's no general aviation hangar
space available anywhere in central Arkansas. Walter Smiley, head
of the Little Rock Business Aviation Association, said his group
has been warning government officials for more than two years that
space was running out. Now, he says, it has.
The issue is centered on hangar space. The situation is so bad
that LRBAA member Bob East says no hangars are available in Little
Rock for lease or purchase at any price. At this point, there's no
indication from the Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission what
solution -- if any -- is forthcoming.
