Hangar #180 (aka Chris George's Hangar or the "Jet Hangar") - 18799 Airport Way

Pitt Meadows BC V3Y 0A7



Arriving by Vehicle:

Please use the above address to navigate towards Hangar 180, and reference the map below. Permitted free parking areas for the event include the Pitt Meadows Airport parking lots (both labelled on map, just to the north east and east respectively of Chris George's Hangar - aka Hangar 180 ), or parking at Maxcraft Avionics Hangar further to the east. Please do not park at the small lot directly south of Hangar 180 itself as this is will create a traffic bottleneck and is also the area of the hangar where the pedestrian entrance will be so we want to keep it clear. Look for PrepAIR signage upon arrival to any of the parking areas to guide you.


Arrival by Aircraft:

Upon arrival request taxi to the general aviation ramp and park in any available spot (any colour labelled on the map below with a '+'). If unfamiliar, request progressive taxi and state that you are attending PrepAIR, and ATC will assist you.
