GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A pilots' group is suing the Glendale Municipal Airport over hangar storage issues.

The Glendale Airport Pilots Association said the city is forcing pilots at the airport to clear their non-flight related belongings from their hangars.

Nearly 20 pilots have pooled their cash to file the suit, which alleges breach of contract, broken promises, changing contracts and loss of property value.

The pilots want the city to allow them to continue storing their non-flight-related belongings in the hangars they have used for years.

Some hangar owners store their model cars, boats, RVs, exercise equipment, antique collectables and more alongside their airplanes at the Glendale airport.

But the Federal Aviation Administration stipulates that the city only allow aeronautical storage in hangars in order to receive grants for airport expansion and improvements.
