Best Practices in Hangar Subleasing, Part I

In the first in a series of best practices in hangar subleasing, FBO Partners President Douglas Wilson explores the concept of lease subordination.

 

To be sure, there have been almost as  many articles penned on the pitfalls of hangar subleasing as there are actual pitfalls to the process- and yet, few real estate professionals and even fewer attorneys understand its nuances fully.  As a result, Fixed Base Operators are sometimes left to explore this potentially hazardous landscape without a map, or clear guidance.  So where does one begin when crafting hangar subleases?  The first step is to look at your FBO's airport lease.

 

Though there are multiple sections in a well-authored hangar sublease, one of the more important yet sometimes overlooked clauses that should be in your FBO's sublease is entitled "Subordination."  For 99.9% of FBOs, their operating rights on an airport is through a lease document- sometimes referred to as a Master Lease.  This is the airport's agreement with its tenant- the FBO- that describes the leased space itself, such as the leasehold boundaries, improvements, rates, and notably, the lease term.  It often includes an attachment common to all the leases of the airport itself, called the "General Terms and Conditions" or similar.  The General Terms and Conditions is an interesting amalgamation of rules constructed from various federal and state laws, and includes an array of guidelines for the airport tenant.  Many of these rules emanate from the airport's own FAA grant assurances, and run the gamut from rules about discrimination and fair practices, to environmental laws. 

 

The concept of Subordination in your sublease is just that- any hangar sublease your FBO enters into must be subordinate to your FBO's lease with the airport.  Because of this, it is a wise idea to attach a redacted copy of your airport lease along with the General Terms and Conditions to your hangar subleases.  In the eyes of the airport, the FBO and the FBO's subtenants are one in the same, and both must abide by the airport's rules.  On a technical basis, if your tenant were to violate an airport rule, say, one of the General Terms and Conditions, the FBO can be held responsible.  The easiest way to communicate those requirements is to attach those documents to your FBO's hangar subleases.  In doing so, you only then need state in your subordination paragraph that the sublease your FBO is entering into with your hangar tenant "...shall be subordinate to the FBO's Lease, and subject to the Airport's General Terms and Conditions, attached hereto as Exhibit A."

New Hangars at Sunriver Airport 

Two new private hangars are currently under construction at the Sunriver Airport in Oregon.  The larger of the two is 17,015 square feet and includes a 14,060 square foot hangar space, garages, a mezzanine and a pilot work space facility.

 

The second is 8,847 square feet including the 6,409 square foot hangar space and attached garages.  These hangars will be the largest at Sunriver Airport.  They are being constructed on property owned by Sunriver Resort and are scheduled for completion this summer. 

A Tale of Two Airports, Part II

 

In a previous edition (June 2014) we described some of the stark differences in attitudes local airports are facing in Bloomington, IL, and Santa Monica, CA.

 

Whereas in Bloomington the airport and its continued operation and expansion are fully welcomed by government and residents alike, the situation is muddled and contentious in Santa Monica and has been for a number of years.

 

In this edition we discuss a new development at Santa Monica Airport (SMO).

 

In July a Part 16 Complaint about SMO was filed with the FAA by AOPA, NBAA, several airport businesses, aircraft owners, and a corporate operator that flies in and out of SMO frequently.

 

In a nutshell, the object of the complaint is to settle the issue of when the city, which owns and operates the airport, is no longer subject to grant assurance obligations that require it to keep the airport open.

 

The city believes its obligations expire July 1, 2015, however the complainants assert that in 2003 a request by the city to amend the last grant agreement extended that period of time until August 2023.

 

 The complaint states, in part, that " ...businesses and operations already have been, currently are, and will continue to be adversely affected by the city's repeated public announcements if its intention to close or to significantly restrict the airport and its operations after July 1, 2015, which effectively discourages investment in and commitment to the airport by current and prospective tenants and users. Formal confirmation of the city's grant assurance obligations is essential to prevent further, possibly fatal, erosion of the airport's viability for all users and the general public."

 

The complete list of complainants include, in addition to AOPA and NBAA, the following: aircraft sales company Krueger Aviation, Flight school Justice Aviation, which has operated at SMO for 21 years, Kim Davidson Aviation, a maintenance provider employing 11 people, television commercial producer Aero Film, owner of a Citation II and MD500, and which also has offices at the airport.   Also on the list are Paramount Citrus Aviation, the flight department for agricultural firm Paramount Citrus, whose fleet averages 235 operations per month at SMO and aircraft owners Youri Bujko, James Ross and pilot and actor Harrison Ford, who bases a number of planes at SMO including a Citation Sovereign and Bell 407.

 

Part 16 proceedings are formal complaints filed by "parties substantially affected by alleged noncompliance," and "if there appears to be a reasonable basis for further investigation" will be investigated by the FAA Office of Airport Compliance.

 

Hangar Network plans to begin reporting on several currently hot topics in aviation, such as the use of UAV/UAS by real estate companies as well as situations affecting airport usage and operations, such as the situation at SMO.

 

Visit our blog page: www.hangarnetwork.com/blog for ongoing updates on these and other topics of interest to the aviation community, and how they may affect your airport property.

HangarTech - LED Lighting From The Ground Up

I've seen a lot of cool hangars with interesting build-outs that include lofts, bars, Jacuzzis, game rooms, theatres, and even a bowling alley.  But I've seen nothing done way out of the norm with lighting. The most interesting lighting I've seen to date, as far as aesthetics are concerned, is out of southeast Wisconsin at the Sturtevant Airport (C89). A private flying club went all-out and put all sorts of lights in the ceiling. It was well done but still didn't break the mold.

 

 I did come up with an idea that I've held pretty close to my chest...until now. I would like to see floor integrated lighting that lights the aircraft (and the rest of the hangar) from below. I've not witnessed samples of this in any capacity in aviation and out of it....until now.  On a recent trip to service my car at the dealer, I noticed the cars in the showroom had lighting installed in the floor that bathed the underside of the car in warm light. The integrated LED floor lighting would illuminate the chassis, exhaust, suspension and other elements from under the car. The floor tile, with its mirror-like finish, was able to reflect the entire underside of the car to the consumer in magnificent detail. It was an effective marketing tool.

 

This was it!  This is what I was looking for in hangar lighting.  It would serve two functions when adapted to the hangar. First, the lighting would serve a cosmetic purpose.  LED lights are extremely versatile and can be programmed to fade from one color to the next, vary in intensity, or flash a specified sequence of solid or alternating colors.  Imagine what it would look like when seeing a completely dark hangar with a soft glow of light illuminating the underside of the aircraft in warm light from the ground up. The second function LED lights would serve would be through their utility. The lighting could be set to "high" and serve as a tool to provide plentiful lighting when servicing/washing/waxing the underside of the aircraft.

 

I spoke to the general manager of the car dealer at length regarding their lighting system and he said that the entire control interface is through a dedicated app on their iPad or iPhone. Any setting you could think of could be programmed using either iDevice. Installation did take a lot of time as the lighting was installed as part of a remodel of the dealer showroom.

 

Other Adaptations:

 

Integrated floor lighting need not be LED and need not be just in the center of the floor.  It could also line the inner perimeter of the hangar and cast light up along the walls towards the ceiling. In addition, if you have a single-panel hydraulic door, you could integrate lighting onto the interior portion, thus when opened, light would shine down from the door overhang. The possibilities are endless.

 

I passed this idea on two a friend named Adam Burch. He was an engineer with Adam Aircraft and was in charge of the interior cabin and cockpit design from a function and ergonomic standpoint. His primary tool-set is 3D modeling software and was able to create photo-quality renderings of cockpit, cabin interior, and even the aircraft exterior . His work was so good that images of the aircraft flying used in brochures were actually his computer renderings.
 

I tossed him my idea to see if he could generate an image that captures my mind's eye and within an hour or so, he sent back the image below. I was blown away. Some people want simple aircraft and simple hangars. But for those that prefer to present a little flair within the hangar, this might be a suitable option.
