I approached the previous owner 4 years ago about putting 18 hangar homes on the eastern corner, and was then contacted by MCR about this, but they were not interested, presumably because it would safeguard the airfield, which they clearly do not want to keep. A combination of hangar and conventional homes could work, but not if there are only conventional homes.
Tbh, I can't ever see an airfield owner selling a plot for hangar homes as a single resident then potentially controls the future of the entire site for ever. The only way you will ever build hangar homes is by owning the airfield first.
The oldest house I own was built in 1913, if that was a hangar home, it would be on the edge of a little grass field with a few bleriot's flying off it on dry, sunny days. That hangar home wouldn't appeal to todays Cirrus owner.
Imagine what we will be flying in 50 years time, electric VTOL, Starks Iron Man suit maybe. If one hangar home owner with runway rights happens to have converted his Spitfire to run on bio-fuels and refuses to surrender his rights to the 1000mtrs of tarmac that only he uses, the landowner is stuffed.
Even my "crazy" pilot owned airfield idea could one day have to throw in the towel and hand its nest egg to our heirs.
The quickest way to fall out with people is, discuss politics.
