Introduction

Building a small airplane hangar yourself and calculating the cost is not easy, as different locations and uses will greatly affect the plan.

For example, the construction of hangars in cold areas requires the design of heating devices. In contrast, in hot and humid places, in addition to considering the heat dissipation of the hangar, the hangar must also be ventilated. As another example, there will be a massive difference in the cost of the system's functionality between a hangar for individual aircraft storage and a multi-purpose hangar. Some hangar owners may even consider selling the hangar in the future.

To make it easier to resell in the future, hangar owners will design the hangar as a warehouse that can store multiple types of items. Although there are too many things to consider, we can start from the simplest model.

Cost Model for Building a 60x60 Size Hangar

When figuring out the construction cost of a small airplane hangar, you should put aside the design of customized functions and detailed planning of uses and start with the simplest hangar building structure. A 60x60 hangar is generally a box-type hangar, and its most basic building structure costs include the following aspects

Land Costs

The price of purchasing or leasing land depends on its geographical environment, land quality, development potential, additional facilities, and government taxes. For example, land with conditions such as being close to the city, flat and wide, with good drainage, fertile soil, etc., will have a higher price. If you already have land, you can build a small hangar; the airplane hangar cost will be much less.

Material Costs

The cost of construction materials for the airplane hangar also differs with different structures. The material cost of the wooden structure hangar is relatively cheap, giving people a natural and comfortable sense of intimacy. Still, the later maintenance cost is relatively high. The material cost of the metal structure hangar is medium, the structure is solid and durable, the last maintenance cost is low, and the overall feel is more modern and industrial. Precast concrete hangars have high strength and durability. They can withstand most natural or artificial disasters. Still, they are more expensive to build and more difficult to customize.

Labor Costs

Generally speaking, the most basic small airplane hangar construction requires the design and planning of engineers, the structural erection of construction workers, and the erection of electrical and plumbing systems by electricians and plumbers. These three are the most basic and essential. Of course, suppose you or your relatives and friends have relevant skills and experience and are willing to provide free labor support. In that case, labor costs can also be reduced.

License and Approval Costs

Small hangars are also considered a type of building, so compliant hangar construction requires a building permit from the local government. In addition to the building permit, it is generally necessary to complete the relevant approval processes for land use planning, environmental protection, and flight regulations approval. According to different local regulations, there are special approval regulations, including restrictions on building height, materials, and appearance. Therefore, before building a small airplane hangar, you'd better understand the local rules and regulations and coordinate with relevant departments.

Logistics Transportation Costs

The more complex the hangar, the greater the need for extensive building materials and structural support. Transportation of these building materials and structures also incurs considerable costs to build a hangar. Purchasing materials from local suppliers as much as possible, controlling the supply and delivery of materials fewer times and more, determining the most efficient transportation route before transportation, or setting up temporary storage space at the construction site to reduce the need for transportation of materials as much as possible, etc. It can help you minimize airplane hangar costs in this area.

The following is a preliminary cost table designed by SHELTER for a 60x60 hangar construction project requester in rural Tennessee. This cost calculation has set aside the cost of the personalized requirements component. Building such a small airplane hangar in rural Tennessee would cost between $48,000 and $392,200. Of course, US$48,000 is the cost data in the most ideal situation. According to SHELTER's experience, the general cost of building a hangar is more than US$90,000.

Types of CostsEstimated Cost Range
Land Cost 
- Land purchased$1000 - $2,200+
- Lease land$710 - $1,350+ (5 years)
- Existing land$500+
Building Materials 
- Wood structure$40,000 - $100,000+
- Metal structure$57,600 - $126,000+
- Wood-metal hybrid structure$91,000 - $180,000+
- Precast concrete structure$146,000 - $325,000+
Labor Costs$5,000 - $50,000+
License And Approval Fees$500 - $5,000+
Shipping And Logistics Costs$2,000 - $10,000+
Total Cost$48,000 - $392,200+
Medium Hangar

Final Words

To sum up, building a 60-foot by 60-foot hangar requires considering the cost of many aspects. Overall, costs can range from tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars more, depending on conditions and planning for land, building materials, labor, permits, transportation, and individual needs. Before starting to build your hangar, consider the possible costs fully. If you need help, you can contact SHELTER.
