Document Title
McClellan Aviation Hangar Space Lease
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The project consists of executing a lease for the aviation maintenance program due to increased aircraft requirements. New hanger area is necessary to incorporate twelve new S-70i Black Hawk helicopters which will replace the existing fleet of "Huey" helicopters and require twice as much space. The first helicopter has been delivered, with the second unit expected in February of 2020. Subsequent deliveries will occur over the next two years. Without the additional hangar, maintenance operations will slow down during the winter months as upkeep cannot be done outside. This hanger will provide for winter storage until Capital Improvements at the various Helitack Bases are complete for final disbursement of the helicopters throughout CALFIRE'S units.
