The chairman of North Bay's Air Base Property Corp. wants major airport tenants at Jack Garland Airport to have free access to their hangars. Vic Fedeli is asking North Bay city council for the return of airport ramps at the Aerospace Centre. Major new tenants such as Voyageur Airways and Bombardier have had to pay upwards of $10,000 in annual fees to cross the ramp -- used to park aircraft --to access their hangars. Transport Canada levied the fee a few years ago when it severed the ramp from the hangars leaving new tenants such as Voyageur without access. The city inherited the access agreement when the airport was turned over to them by Transport Canada.
