The Big Bear Airport board isn’t changing lease agreements with hangar renters yet. But change is coming. Airport board vice president Gary Steube read his recommendations to a quorum of the board at the Feb. 6 meeting. Steube said all the airport leases should be updated to the most current format, which requires an operable airplane to be stored in the hangar. “There are three different versions of the airport hangar rental agreements. Every lease needs to have the same language,” Steube said.
