The FAA published a policy update to the Federal Register on June 15 focusing on hangar use at federally obligated airports.  The update will take effect July 1, 2017, and is meant to be a clarification of “how aviation facilities—including hangars can be used on airports that receive federal funds,” according to the FAA.
