Project description: Leasing a new hangar on the opposite side of the runway from its current property will accommodate American Airlines as it flies planes from its Embraer 175 fleet out of the Springfield-Branson National Airport. American has flown the larger planes out of Springfield for about five years now, said airport spokesperson Kent Boyd. According to Jason Clark, senior engineer and project manager for Crawford, Murphy & Tilly Inc., bonds issued by the city of Springfield are paying for the construction project, but that outlay of funds will be recouped through lease payments by American. The airline plans to house three of its 76-seat Embraer 175 aircraft on-site while supporting 60 employees. Also included in the project are administration offices, a break room, storage and shop areas, a training space, a classroom and a testing area. Clark said the project is on track to finish at the end of October for the hangar’s November opening.
