The University of Alaska Board of Regents has approved $3.3 million for the hangar, which will serve as a base for drone cargo delivery test flights between Fairbanks and Nenana. The hangar will offer full-time space for drone storage and maintenance and testing of equipment.

ACUASI, part of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute, has been utilizing the airport for test flights and hopes for the city to become a part of an Interior drone testing hub. Currently, the airport does not have any available hangars. The new hangar’s construction is expected to start prior to June 30th, and to finish by early fall. UAF will lease land from the city.
