New St. Luke's Helicopter Hangar Almost Completed
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The new hangar for the Air Saint Luke's helicopter is almost done.
Construction began earlier this year. Last year's Festival of Trees and this spring's Epicurean Event helped raise part of the half million dollars to pay for the hangar. The building will keep the helicopter cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Laura Stewart, Spokeswoman for St. Luke's Magic Valley, says, "The FAA regulations state that we need to have all surfaces of that helicopter, whether it's the blades, all of the surfaces frost free and ice free, so they can take off. That's what the hangar does."
The hangar's due to open sometime next month. Other community donors to the hangar project include Glanbia Foods, Idaho Central Credit Union, Middlekauff Automotive, Clear Springs Foods, and the Keveren Foundation.
