Tunica Airport Corporate Hangar

The Corporate Hangar ll is a new aviation facility that is the current phase of the continuing expansion of the Tunica Municipal Airport. The new heated hangar is approximately 20,000 square feet in total area and will accommodate various types of aircrafts for both on-call and scheduled maintenance services. The building also has office space for administrative functions, as well as, storage areas located throughout. The aesthetic of the building exterior is a combination of aluminum composite panels with a striking 4 foot grid pattern and corrugated sheet metal surfaces that fit seamlessly into the current array of buildings located on the site. Additional highlights of the hangar is that it has strategically located windows that provide natural light supplemented by highly efficient LED lighting. The pre-engineered structural system has been designed to accommodate the weight of the future installation of solar panels that could supply 100% of the building’s energy consumption. The building has also been designed to be expanded on the South side as the need arises for more space in the future.
