HECTOR, MINN. – Schweiss Doors has supplied 13 bifold doors already with 22 more on the way to hangar owners of the growing Pegasus Airpark project in Arizona.
“We went with top quality executive box hangars with plumbing on deeded ground that can be passed down for generations,” says Daniel Coury Sr., one of the hangar owners at Pegasus Airpark. “Because we went with top quality 61 x 50-foot hangars with 18-foot clearance inside and 60-foot doors, we chose to go with Schweiss Doors.”
The hangars at Pegasus Airpark sell for $350,000 each, so it was important to have quality doors, says Coury.
Coury was introduced to Schweiss Doors when he bought a couple of hangars that already had Schweiss Doors. He then went to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh to personally meet Schweiss President Mike Schweiss and learn more about how the door is constructed.
Coury was sold on bifold doors over hydraulic doors, and since Schweiss was the only manufacturer that offers bifold doors with straps, the choice was easy.
“We have winds here called haboob,” said Coury. “We had one haboob recently where the wind got up to 49 mph. If that wind hits, look out.” With added reinforcement designed by Schweiss, Coury is not concerned with opening his bifold doors in the big wind.
Coury prefers the bifold liftstrap/autolatch door because it allows him the ability to park aircraft or vehicles closer to the doors.
Pegasus Airpark (5AZ3) is an airport located in Queen Creek, Ariz., near Williams Gateway airport. The Pegasus Airpark is a gated residential aviation community built around the 5,000 x 80-foot runway (www.pegasus-airpark.com).
