Things To Keep In Mind Before Building An Airplane Hangar Kit

Things To Keep In Mind Before Building An Airplane Hangar Kit

Whether you’re new to the idea or familiar with designing, purchasing, and erecting an airplane hangar kit, certain questions, concerns and parameters need to be taken into consideration first. Some obstacles are more obvious than others (such as the location, property latitude, and overall purpose), while others are a little more convoluted i.e., any restrictions and requirements needed by building code or permit. All in all, it is important to carefully review the prerequisites ahead of time to orchestrate a design, coordinate the construction process so it’s seamless.

Depending on your intention, there are key differences between personal and commercial use, location preferences, wind ratings, snow loads, and many more variables. Begin by familiarizing yourself with the state or county building standards and requirements, some cases set by the state airport authority (if applicable), or hire a qualified engineer for help. While laying out the design and clearances, keep the overall dimension of the building, bays, and hangar doors in mind. The option of insulation is also a very important factor to the general building, as well as any potential future expansion.
