Gary Airport Hangar Lands Tenant
GARY - The new East Corporate Hangar at the Gary/Chicago International Airport has landed a major tenant. The airport has approved a 10-year lease with Valparaiso-based Sage-Popovich to occupy the $1.3 million hangar, which is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2019.
The Gary/Chicago International Airport Authority Board says the lease includes two five-year extensions. Sage-Popovich, which has had a presence at the airport for more than 20 years, provides commercial aircraft repossession, fleet management, and charter flight services, among others, according to its website.
"The entire Sage-Popovich flight department is thrilled to enter this new phase of our expansion with a new home at the Gary/Chicago International Airport," Nick Popovich, president of Sage-Popovich, said in a news release. "It has been amazing to see the growth of the airport over the past two decades and we are happy to be just a small part of that amazing transformation. We are looking forward to continuing the long-standing relationship with the airport and the two FBOs on the field."
