The purpose of this project is to accommodate and attract additional aeronautical industry opportunities to Hancock County that would bolster county and coastal economic development as well as provide technical and specialized jobs to the local community. The objective is to increase square footage of hangar capacity at Stennis International Airport to accommodate new tenant business or expansion of existing tenant business. Direct Component funds will be used for planning and construction of the proposed hangar facility which would be approx. 24,000 square feet and include office space and may accommodate maintenance, repair, and overhaul operations for tenants. This project aligns with the economic development and infrastructure priorities developed by the GoCoast 2020 Commission.
