New Runway, New Taxiways, Now New Hangers
Since purchasing Flabob
airport in 2000, the Thomas Wathen Foundation has initiated a
number of upgrades and refinements to the airport.
They repaved the runway, paved a significant amount of taxiway,
cleared brush, painted old buildings and torn down a number of
other old buildings. In their place they have erected 12 new
hangars, all with electric bifold doors. All new structures are
designed to preserve the historic look of the airport.
Five of the hangars are 50' X 50' and the remaining seven are
42' X 40'. All twelve were spoken for before they were
The expanding number of aircraft being based at Flabob has led
to plans for constructing another five hangars.
In addition to improving the grounds and architecture of the
airport, the Wathen Foundation has developed an extensive list and
busy schedule for activities designed to attract young people to
aviation. They also co-hosts several Open Houses in the course of a
year, appealing to sport, vintage and general aviation pilots.
