SALINA, Kan. (AP) - The Salina Airport Authority will lease part of an oversized hangar at its airport and make improvements that will allow the Bombardier Flight Test Center of Wichita to consolidate its operation.

The board voted Tuesday to offer a two-year lease to Bombardier and make $622,703 in repairs to the hangar, a taxiway and apron.

Bombardier will lease about 27,000 square feet of the 130,000-square foot hangar known as “Big Bertha” in Salina. It can house aircraft with wing spans over 200 feet and tail heights up to 58 feet.

The flight test center will consolidate its operations into one building. It currently leases 10 buildings in the Salina airport industrial center.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1A5botD ) Bombardier will pay $188,100 a year for the lease, which begins Oct. 1.
