Jeffco hanger

Workers are making steady headway on the new aircraft hangar at the Research Aviation Facility at Jeffco. The 35,000-square-foot hangar will have room for two NSF/NCAR research aircraft: the C-130 and the new High-performance Instrumented Airborne Platform for Environmental Research (HIAPER), which is scheduled to arrive in the fall. In contrast, the current 19,000-square-foot hangar can barely house a single aircraft. “This new facility will be an enormous asset as it will enable us to support an expanded fleet of research aircraft,” says RAF’s Gerry Albright, who oversees aircraft operations and security. The new hangar, made of steel beams and mostly steel siding, is located northeast of the existing hangar. Construction is scheduled to wrap up in September.
