Feasibility Study in South Tx


Understanding the Market and Regulatory Environment

The first step in developing your property for an aircraft hangar/airstrip business is to conduct a feasibility study. This involves understanding the market demand for hangar space and airstrip services in Southern Texas, as well as the regulatory environment[1].


Market Demand for South Tx. Hangars

Understanding the market demand involves analyzing the number of private aircraft owners in the area, the availability of hangar space, and the level of competition among existing hangar businesses[1].


Regulatory Environment

Understanding the regulatory environment involves familiarizing yourself with federal, state, and local regulations that apply to aircraft hangars and airstrips. This includes FAA requirements, environmental regulations, and zoning laws[3][8].


Financial Analysis

A feasibility study also involves conducting a financial analysis to estimate the potential revenue and costs associated with the project. This includes estimating the cost of developing the hangar or airstrip, the potential revenue from hangar rentals and other services, and the return on investment[1].

Site Design

Once the feasibility study has been completed and the decision has been made to proceed with the project, the next step is to design the hangar or airstrip. This involves determining the size and layout of the hangar or airstrip, the location of access roads and other infrastructure, and the design of any additional facilities such as restrooms and pilot lounges[1][5].


Engineering Design

JRH Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc. can provide engineering design services for the project, including metal building design, foundation design, and general structural engineering design[2][7].


Permit Approval


Local and State Permits

Before construction can begin, you will need to obtain the necessary permits from local and state authorities. This may include building permits, environmental permits, and permits from the Texas Department of Transportation[3][8].


FAA Approval

If your project involves changes to an existing airport layout, you may also need to obtain approval from the FAA[10].


Construction Management and Inspection

Once the necessary permits have been obtained, the next step is to manage the construction of the hangar or airstrip. This involves overseeing the construction work, ensuring that it is carried out according to the design specifications, and complying with all relevant regulations[1].


JRH Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc. can provide construction management and inspection services to ensure that the project is completed successfully[2][7].


Conclusion

Developing a property for an aircraft hangar/airstrip business in Southern Texas involves several steps, from conducting a feasibility study to designing the hangar or airstrip, obtaining the necessary permits, and managing the construction process.
