Carl kicks things off by bringing up a proposed rule regarding non-aeronautical uses of airport hangers. The comment period is open until September 5th. Airports that accept federal money, public or private, can only be used for aeronautical usage. Many airports are allowing people to store things like boats and cars in hangers, leaving pilots to complain that they do not have hanger space to store their aircraft. This led to a discussion of hanger homes.
