(La Junta, CO) -- The Fowler airport is receiving a donation of a bank of ten hangars from Pueblo.
Otero County Commissioners approved the donation Monday in their regular meeting.
Amy White Tanabe says the city of Pueblo is adding new hangars and is donating the old hangars to Fowler. The Fowler airport approached commissioners to be a pass through to approve the hangars. They needed to move quickly to get signatures from commissioners so the pueblo airport could get started.
Tanabe says some of the neat things is this will provide space for general aviation communities and also public transit aircraft and will give them a maintenance and flight planning facilities.
