More hanger space at Hawthorne run by Jet Center LA.
According to the City jet traffic is up 300% in the last couple of years.
Will this bring in even more jets? It’s not looking good.
Particularly when Jet Center keeps highlighting in the aviation press that Hawthorne has absolutely no curfew. See the sentence we bolded.
Jet Center Los Angeles, one of two FBOs at dedicated general aviation Jack Northrop Field/Hawthorne Municipal Airport (HHR), expects to complete its $10.5 million hangar project by the end of this month.
Located three miles south of LAX and 13 miles from downtown Los Angeles, HHR has a 4,956-foot runway and no curfew. It is situated just blocks away from the under-construction stadium for the L.A. Rams football team and SpaceX’s headquarters are on the southest end of the airfield.
“With the help from our partners and talented team, Hawthorne Airport is perfectly situated to service all the overflow from busier L.A. airports,” said Jet Center Los Angeles president Levi Stockton. “With these hangars in place and the new Rams stadium, Hawthorne Airport will be the hot spot for L.A. corporate travel.”
