42 Guidebook for Developing and Managing Airport Contracts be environmentally conscious. Recent contracting efforts have enhanced the environmental stewardship sections of FBO agreements. PDX, at the forefront of this trend, has excellent lan- guage covering virtually all requirements that should be placed on an active FBO. See CRP-CD-81 (enclosed herein), Appendix to Chapter 4, General Aviation, for excerpts from the PDX FBO Agreement for example of provisions regarding environmental management and compliance requirements for FBOs. 4.3 Critical Issues--Hangar Leases As with FBOs, it is in the airport sponsor's best interests to regulate the activities conducted under a hangar lease. Because these leases are usually executed for very short or month-to-month terms, it is also important to make these agreements easy to execute and terminate. Critical issues are as follows: Uses and privileges Forms for leasing and terminating Revenue sharing 4.3.1 Uses and Privileges As with FBO leases, a sponsor must regulate the activities that occur in a leased hangar. See CRP-CD-81 (enclosed herein), Appendix to Chapter 4, General Aviation, for excerpts from the JAX T-Hangar Lease Agreement for example of provisions regarding permitted uses of the premises. 4.3.2 Forms for Leasing and Terminating Airports can improve compliance with the regulations in a lease agreement by providing forms for registering aircraft and terminating leases. See CRP-CD-81 (enclosed herein), Appendix to Chapter 4, General Aviation, for excerpts from the PIT Hangar Registration Form for registration of aircraft based in a leased hangar and Notice of JAX's lease termination form attached which is attached to its T-hangar lease form. 4.3.3 Revenue Sharing In some cases, hangars are leased for specific business purposes. For these arrangements, air- ports should seek revenue sharing provisions, just as they do with FBOs or terminal concessions. When practical, a percentage of gross revenue approach is preferred (please see Chapter 2 of this Guidebook for additional detail on percentage rent structures). Some forms of business, how- ever, may not lend themselves well to a percentage approach. To accommodate these businesses, ACAA takes a simple approach to revenue sharing if a business is to be run from a leased hangar. Rather than a percentage of gross sales or similar arrangement, the Authority adds a per square foot surcharge on top of the rate for the base hangar lease. The Authority also adds a charge for fuel delivered and not purchased from Authority-approved sources. See CRP-CD-81 (enclosed herein), Appendix to Chapter 4, General Aviation, for excerpts from the PIT Lease Agreement for provisions regarding rent payments, business surcharges and fuel flowage fees.
