The longtime landlord of one of San Bernardino International Airport’s largest hangars has filed for bankruptcy.

The public agency overseeing the airport is owed more than $400,000 in unpaid rent and has filed a suit to formally evict Norton Property Management Services LLC.

The company, managed by Scot Spencer and T. Milford Harrison, filed for Chapter 11 reorganization on Dec. 7, according to court records.

A.J. Wilson, interim executive director of the San Bernardino International Airport Authority and related Inland Valley Development Agency, said the bankruptcy may slow down the eviction process, but he was certain the airport authority would regain control of the hangar, if not collect the unpaid rent.

“My immediate concern isn’t collecting money I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to collect anyway,” Wilson said.

“We have every right to follow the letter of our leases,” he said, adding that one of the obvious requirements was to pay rent.

Attempts to reach Spencer and Harrison for comment Tuesday evening were not successful. A message also was left with the Los Angeles law firm representing the company.
