Airport Hangar Lease Information
Airport Hangar Leases are month to month and may be terminated without cause by either party with 30 days written notice prior to the desired termination date. Subletting is NOT allowed and will be cause for immediate termination of your lease as well as repayment of any and all fees received above the Airport’s rates. Hangar rate increases occur every two years upon review and approval by the Northern Colorado Regional Airport Commission. When the rate is increased it is based on inflation which the Airport retrieves from the Consumer Price Index published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the Denver – Aurora – Lakewood area. If you are interested in reviewing the CPI yourself you may do so at: http://www.bls.gov/cpi/data.htm
Hangar leases are required to have one month’s rent paid as security deposit and procure, pay for and keep in full force and affect insurance coverage with the following minimums:
- Minimum one million dollars ($1,000,000) General Liability coverage or a limit not less than the maximum amount that may be recovered against the Cities under the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act, whichever is greater.
- Insurance written in a form (COI) acceptable to the City of Fort Collins and the City of Loveland and marked “premium paid”.
- All policies of insurance shall name the Cities of Fort Collins and Loveland as additional insureds.
- Notice within thirty (30) days of cancellation or material change.
FAA regulations stipulate hangar use is limited to aeronautical storage, storage of additional non-hazardous items is permissible provided your valid registered airworthy aircraft is the main item being stored (50% of the hangar).
