Kuhn Aviation Expands with New Hangar Lease at Leesburg Airport
Loudoun Now, Norman K. Styer Aug 9, 2023
A year after securing approval to operate as a second fixed-base operator at Leesburg Executive Airport, Kuhn Aviation is expanding its operations there.
The Town Council on Tuesday approved a 40-year lease for the company to construct a 25,000-square-foot hangar at the northeast corner of the airport property. The project will make room for four more jets, and Chuck Kuhn told the council it also would create 21 additional high-paying jobs at the airport, adding to the company’s 34-member staff.
Kuhn Aviation was the only company to submit a lease proposal in response to an RFP issued through the Town Attorney’s Office. At an initial annual lease of $53,250, the $2.13-per-square-foot rate is the highest at the airport, according to Airport Director Scott Coffman.
