Wingin’ It Arlington Municipal Airport Newsletter Issue 8—August 2016 T-Hangar Repair Project Underway Building permits were issued, and the T-Hangar Repair Project began Monday, August 15, 2016. LMC Corporation, of Denton, TX, was awarded the contract. The work on the Row #5 is scheduled to take approximately 20 days to complete, weather permitting. This would put Row #5 tenants back in their hangars in mid- September. Tenants in Row #4 will be advised of a proposed move date as soon possible. We ask for tenant cooperation in making the moves quickly. As workload allows, Airport personnel will have the pickups available to assist in moving equipment between hangars. Please call Harrison Aviation if help is needed with aircraft relocation. General Scope of Work: Exterior Repairs: · Replace all damaged screws in walls and roof with new screws · Power wash and scrape off any loose paint on both hangars · Paint 39,520 SF of roof panel and 24,192 SF of siding panels · Replace rollers for existing rolling doors and adjust doors as needed · Replace damaged R-panels Employee Highlights Welcome New Airport Operations Supervisor 5000 S.
