New hangars open

KILN, Miss. – Five hangars with over 66,000 square feet of space are now available at Stennis International Airport. Two new hangars were recently constructed, and three existing hangars were purchased by Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission, the owners of Stennis International (KHSA). Adjacent to the terminal, a 24,000 square foot hangar was completed in September. Opening directly to the main ramp, it features a hangar door that is 154 feet wide and 28 feet high. The location includes utility rooms, restrooms and a foam fire suppression system. In recent years, Hancock County has grown 230 new jobs and seen nearly $100 million in capital investment in aerospace development. Additionally, the next generation of aerospace workforce will be trained locally at Pearl River Community College’s planned $10 million workforce development center at the airport.
