Hangars in Northern Virginia

Revised 04/03/2011

Hangars are in short supply in Northern Virginia, but they are available at the three airports shown in red at right.

Excluded here are Leesburg (JYO) and Manassas (HEF), as these are inside the Washington Special Flight Rules Area. A transponder and flight plan is required for every flight, which makes them unattractive for light flying. Also exluded is Stafford Regional (RMN), south of the SFRA. Traffic on I-95 is so bad that this is impractically far from town. Further, they are promoting the airport as a jetport, which is incompatible with our kind of flying. Culpeper rents hangars but has a multi-year waiting list.

Lastly, Berryvale (VA30) north of Culpeper is excluded. This is an airport community. You can buy a house with a hangar there, but none are for rent.

Cons

  1. Mixed use (airplanes, ultralights, PPGs, an onsite parachute operation) requires special vigilance when flying.
