Question: My airport manager said I can’t keep a refrigerator in my leased hangar. Does he have any authority to regulate how I use my hangar?
Answer: If you're leasing a hangar on a public airport which has received federal funds for airport improvement, then it is likely that your airport manager is obligated to restrict hangar use to aeronautical use only. If the FAA discovers that hangars are primarily being used to store ground vehicles, appliances, furniture, or other nonaeronautical items, the FAA may take action against the airport sponsor. The airport manager must enforce certain rules on the airport in order to remain in compliance. Read more about airport compliance.
