    I see most AZ airport hangars in the Phoenix area are full. If a person was looking for a hangar or t-shade near the Mesa area for December thru March what options are out there? I see Chandler and Falcon both have waiting lists, but I don't know if those lists are for permanent spots. Do these airports allow for transient parking for overnight or longer? I can make a few calls but thought I'd check here first. Thanks

    Covered parking, either enclosed or overhead, in the Valley is pretty much non-existent. The only field I know of that might have covered tiedowns is GEU, which is on the other side of the metro area from FFZ.

    Aside: Chandler's hangar wait list is literally 20 years.

    I'm in a covered tie-down at DVT. I know with SDL closing, spaces are becoming limited, but I see a few open covered tie-downs in my section. They're going fast, though. Every time I'm at the airport I see new planes parked there, which I'm assuming are refugees from SDL.

    I thought SDL was just getting runway work, or are they closing it entirely and I’m thinking of somewhere else?

    The shaded tie-down list at KFFZ has normally been a few months in the summer but gets longer during the winter when the snowbirds arrive. If you put yourself on now possibly would have a spot come December.

    Yes, when I signed up some years ago and asked about the wait, they literally suggested I put it in my son’s name!

    You gotta know someone to get hangar in the east valley.
