NEXT STEPS - TANGO T-HANGAR TENANTS

We are moving forward with the next steps in the extraction process following the March 6, 2017 storm.

We will commence with removal of the remaining building debris in Tango hangar on April 5, 2017.  We will be contacting Tango tenants in the near future regarding the specific schedule for debris removal. Tango tenants with aircraft or other personal property remaining on site should be prepared to remove all remaining property at the scheduled time. Removal of the aircraft and other property is your responsibility.

In light of the large debris field, we anticipate that some tenants may have property located outside of their original hangar confines.  If personal property items (not including aircraft) are left on site following debris removal and they appear to be in salvageable condition, we will attempt to hold those items for a brief period of time to allow for the owners to identify and claim those items.  However, we will not store trash or items that appear to be unsalvageable, hazardous, or in non-working condition, and we will not store aircraft.  We will notify Tango lease holders of the personal property items location and claims procedure and time frame in a future communication.

All dates and scheduling are subject to change due to weather conditions and may be delayed.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together through this process.

 

NEXT STEPS - OSCAR, PAPA, ROMEO, SIERRA T-HANGAR TENANTS

We are moving forward with the next steps in the extraction process following the March 6, 2017 storm.

We are proceeding with attempting to raise the hangar doors for those hangars previously identified as favorable candidates for this possible extraction method.  This process will begin on April 10, 2017 and will take several days. We will be contacting tenants who have returned the signed Waiver, Assumption of Risk, and Hold Harmless Agreement to schedule an appointment.  At your appointed time, you will need to remove the aircraft and all other personal property located in the hangar. Removal of the aircraft and other property is your responsibility. You will have a limited time to complete your removal.  Property may not be left in the hangars.

For tenants of T-hangar units that were determined to be accessible through the pedestrian door, you are encouraged to make an appointment to remove as much of your contents through the pedestrian door as possible as soon as possible.  The list of hangars that have accessible pedestrian doors can be found on the Airport Commission’s website.

https://www.jocogov.org/sites/default/files/T-Hangar%20Access%20by%20Hangar.pdf

You can schedule an appointment to access these pedestrian doors by calling the Airport Commission, at 913-715-6000.

In the near future, we will be providing information regarding the next steps for the remaining hangars.

All dates and scheduling are subject to change due to weather conditions and may be delayed.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together through this process.

Manual Door Access

Dear East T-Hangar Tenant:

At the T-Hangar tenants’ meeting on Thursday, March 16, 2017, we identified T-Hangars that appear to be candidates for attempting construction aided extraction of hangars, which may include physical removal of existing doors, structural and metal panels, and other related activities consistent with general construction practices (such activities and practices are collectively referred to as “Construction Aided Extraction”) and ones that may operate in a more normal fashion when energized to provide you with access for removal of your aircraft and other personal property.   To move forward with this procedure, you will need to return to the Airport Commission the attached (Click on Link Below) Waiver, Assumption of Risk, and Hold Harmless Agreement.  This document must be signed by the hangar tenant.

Based on feedback received at the March 16th meeting and additional follow-up, we are not moving forward with the mutual waiver of subrogation that we discussed at the meeting.

Please make certain that you have fully read and understand the contents of the Waiver, Assumption of Risk, and Hold Harmless Agreement.  We encourage you to consult your personal legal counsel and insurance carrier if you have questions about the document.

Please return an ink signed original of the Waiver, Assumption of Risk, and Hold Harmless Agreement to the Airport Commission by 5 p.m. on Monday, March 27, 2017 at the following address:

Johnson County Airport Commission

One New Century Parkway

New Century, KS 66031

There are two other forms attached, which may or may not apply depending on your situation.  First, if you do not own the aircraft stored in your hangar or if you store personal property for someone else, then you will need to have the owner(s) of that aircraft and/or property complete and sign the attached Waiver, Assumption of Risk, and Hold Harmless for Non-Tenant Owners of Property Stored in Hangar.  This form will need to be completed and returned to the Airport Commission by the date and time set forth above.

Second, anyone that will be helping you with the removal of property in your hangar will need to complete and sign the Helper’s Waiver, Assumption of Risk, and Hold Harmless Agreement, which is attached.  If you know who will be helping you with property removal, we ask that you return the completed, signed Helper’s Waiver with the other documents.  If you are not yet certain who will be helping you with property removal, then the Helper’s Waiver may be turned in at a later date before you remove items from the T-Hangar.  However, anyone assisting you will not be allowed to access the hangar and remove property until the Airport Commission receives the completed Helper’s Waiver.

Extractions involving an attempt to raise and lower the hangar door will be scheduled prior to any Construction Aided Extractions.  In the meantime, we are continuing to assess the possible candidates for Construction Aided Extraction.   At the time of extraction, you will need to be prepared to remove the aircraft and all other personal property located in the hangar. Removal of the aircraft and other property is your responsibility.

If you have questions regarding the hangar extraction process, please contact Larry Peet, Deputy Director of the Airport Commission, at 913-715-6000.

For insurance questions, please contact Bill Cauveren, the County’s Risk Manager, at 913-715-0618.

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we work our way through the complex aftermath of the March 6, 2017 storm.

Located at 151st Street and Pflumm Road, between the cities of Olathe and Overland Park, Kansas, Executive Airport is in the heart of Johnson County's economic belt and is the choice for many corporate, business, and general aviation users.

Master Plan:

T-Hangar Evaluation Study:

Pavement Study (draft):

Facilities: The airport is located on approximately 500 acres of land with a 4,100' single runway, parallel taxiways, Federal contract air traffic control tower, and medium intensity airfield lighting. Localizer/DME approaches are available from the north and the south.

Services: In addition to all standard aircraft services, airport businesses offer air charter, aircraft sales, and flight instruction services from smaller single-engine aircraft up to corporate jets.

History: Originally constructed as a Naval auxiliary field during World War II, the airport was deeded to the City of Olathe in 1951 and from the city to Johnson County in 1967. The Board of County Commissioners created the Johnson County Airport Commission to manage, operate, and improve the airports. With over 50,000 annual operations and approximately 210 based aircraft, the airport is the third busiest in the state of Kansas.

Improvements: Improvements to the airport include a new concrete runway and localizer with MALSR lighting system. The west parallel taxiway was reconstructed and a holding bay added to the south end for improved traffic handling.

T-Hangars: The County owns and operates a total of 218 T-Hangars at both Johnson County airports. Aircraft owners wanting to rent a T-Hangar should call (913) 715-6000 to check availability or email larry.peet@jocogov.org.  View the T-Hangar Waiting List Policy for additional information or download the following documents:  Executive Airport (OJC) Map Layout2015 Rental RatesT-Hangar Waitlist RequestT-Hangar Maintenance Request, or Contact Information Update.
