New Garden Airport (N57), Toughkenamon, Pennsylvania: New group moves forward with construction of hangars

High hopes of new hangars at the New Garden Flying Field were temporarily put on hold until a new group came forward at a New Garden Township supervisors’ meeting this week.

Three years ago, plans were put into motion to expand the airport and in January 2012, a land lease agreement was signed with the Hangar Corporation of America.

Since that time, little progress has been made and after several months of no updates, the contract was terminated in June, said Airport Manager Jonathan Martin.

Pilots who were interested in purchasing a hangar and who already made down payments were left with three options: Quit, wait for the township to find a new developer, or they become developers themselves.

They opted for the latter of three.

The core group of five, who were in attendance for the meeting, are in the process of setting up an LLC, which will be known as The New Garden Hangar Association LLC, said member Richard Kellerman.
