HASTINGS, NE - A new business is moving in at the Hastings Municipal Airport.

The Hastings city council approved a hangar lease and airport services agreement with J&S Aviation Services on Monday. The company will occupy hangar 11 and operate a large mechanic shop and aviation shop. Airport Manager Matt Kuhr says J&S is one of the only shops of its kind in the state and will be operating entirely out of the Hastings Airport. The company’s Facebook page says it was previously located in McCook.

Kuhr says five families will be relocating to Hastings because of the business. The agreement starts October 1st and will be in place for five years.
