The Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport recently broke ground on a long-envisioned hangar project in its Aviation Technology Park. Two 14,000 square foot corporate aircraft hangars will be constructed with office and aviation flex space. The groundbreaking event on July 27 celebrated the start of the project and recognized the project’s partners including two federal agencies involved in its funding, USDA Rural Development and the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA). The Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport Commission was awarded a $2 million grant from EDA for the project. The project is expected to create up to 75 high-paying jobs in the aviation technology and aviation maintenance sectors. The CSPDC was instrumental in helping the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport apply for EDA funding and is providing grant administration services for the hangar project.
