Pangborn Airport board members have decided not to renew a lease for aircraft fueling and maintenance operations with Wenatchee Jet Center. The company formally known as Wings of Wenatchee has held the Field Base Operations lease at the airport since 2001 but has been losing money over the last several years due to the recession and its impacts on the general aviation industry. As a result the company owes the Airport just under 17-thousand dollars in rent payments. The board has decided to put the lease out for bid. Two possible bidders were in attendance at the meeting.
