Washington’s Olympia Airport to build new GA hangars

By this time next year, the Olympia Regional Airport (OLM) in Washington may be sporting some new general aviation hangars. The Port of Olympia has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of approximately 4.8 acres on the GA side of the airport.

“We have a waiting list of about 28 people right now for hangars,” noted Airport Manager Rudy Rudolph.

RFPs must be submitted by March 11.

Port officials have another major airport project in the works. They are making plans to shift one of the runways so that there is more distance between it and a road running just outside the airport property.

The airport was a P-38 base during World War II and is home to the Olympic Flight Museum.
