In Replacement Tenant response, each of these airports has consolidated gates, closed off whole or parts of concourses, and taken on responsibilities For specialized buildings such as hangars, maintenance, or for baggage handling and other systems. cargo facilities, airports often take a hard look at the pos- sibilities of leasing some or all of the space to a tenant that would use the property for a similar purpose.

Hillsborough County Airport Authority (HCAA) in Tampa also found a replacement tenant for a US Airways hangar vacated in November 2002. HCAA had to invest $400,000 into the property to repair the fire suppression system and meet safety codes. In 2008, PEMCO World Air Services leased the facility for large jet aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO). In August 2010, PEMCO dou- bled its space at Tampa by leasing another 161,500-ft2 han- gar, a former Delta facility. This hangar is the size of three football fields and is situated on 16.3 acres (see Figure 5). PEMCO wanted flexible parking arrangements within the FIGURE 5 Arrival of first major carrier aircraft at the new Tampa hangar.
