Hangar 7, currently Lehigh Valley Aviation Services, was built in 1958 and was home to Bethlehem Steel’s aviation department.  In 1985, Bethlehem Steel eliminated their flight department in a money saving move for the already struggling company.  In 2004, the Lehigh Northampton Airport Authority took over operations of the FBO. Lehigh Valley Aviation Services is a member of the Air Elite Network and is a full- service FBO. Amenities include a recently renovated passenger terminal and kitchen, a pilot’s lounge, flight planning room, ten-seat conference room, concierge services, a crew car, and a courtesy shuttle.  Many more amenities are available at Lehigh Valley Aviation Services, come visit us and see all we have to offer!
