Accipiter Radar continues to expand their capabilities and commitment to the Niagara Region with the grand opening of the Accipiter Hangar at the Niagara Central Dorothy Rungeling Airport, scheduled to take place on Friday May 5th at 10:00 am. The grand opening is part of an event planned by the Airport to thank local dignitaries, associates and the public for support they received in securing the $99,000 CIP 150 Grant for renovations.
The Hangar allows Accipiter to house small, recreational aircraft such as ultralights, drones, and other test targets that can be flown at the airport when needed.
Accipiter Radar President and CEO, Dr. Tim J. Nohara states that this new hangar is ideally located within minutes of its R&D and manufacturing facility, making it convenient to put small aircraft into unrestricted airspace whenever required for testing or demonstrations. “The success of Accipiter Radar is partially due to our location in the beautiful Niagara Region, where Niagara’s infrastructure includes rare, uncrowded airspace that is not only appealing to recreational, aviation enthusiasts, but also to entrepreneurs like us who innovate to enhance aviation safety.”
The Airport’s Manager, David Devine is pleased with the new renovations and with Accipiter’s hangar which is a natural fit with the aviation community in Niagara. “Accipiter has been a leader in the field of Aviation Safety and Security for over twenty years and we are happy that they chose the Niagara Central Dorothy Rungeling Airport for this new facility. We look forward to working with the Accipiter team in the years to come.”
The Niagara Central Dorothy Rungeling Airport, is a municipally owned airport operated by a Commission representing the communities of Pelham, Welland, Port Colborne, and Wainfleet. Located in the Town of Pelham, the airport has traditionally been referred to as the Welland Airport.
