Introduction

Military hangar is a centralized place for storage, maintenance and repair of various military aircraft. Traditional military aircraft hangars are built over a long period of brickwork and concrete pouring while today's military hangars pursue rapid application according to the needs of time and place. Military hangars built in traditional ways can no longer meet this demand. So the modular military hangar was born.

Modular military hangars use prefabricated modular components, which are pre-produced by the factory and assembled at the hangar destination site. This model of hangar greatly reduces the construction cost of the hangar, including time cost, labor cost and building material cost, accelerating military hangar construction.

Pros of Military Hangars

Provide Shelter for Military Aircraft

Since severe weather such as high humidity, rain, high temperature, ultraviolet rays, hail, etc. will damage or corrode the surface of the aircraft, military hangars protect aircraft from harsh climate environments and withstand a certain degree of hostile attacks. Some high-end military hangars will also be equipped with anti-aircraft missiles, anti-aircraft guns and other systematic measures to defend against enemy attacks.
Moreover, military aircraft use a lot of high-end technology and design to improve the performance of the aircraft in combat. Whether it is necessary to resist external damage or protect the integrity of the fuselage, military hangars can play the greatest role in supplying shelter.

Ensure Aircraft Repair & Maintenance Needs

Military base hangars are usually divided into repair and maintenance areas, equipped with specialized facilities so that mechanics and technicians can perform daily inspections and troubleshooting of aircraft nearby. By integrating these repair and maintenance areas, equipment and human resources, military hangars can ensure efficient repair and maintenance of various types of aircraft.

Ensure the Efficient Combat Status of Aircraft

We all know that when it comes to combat, timing is everything. Military hangars are usually designed with open entrances and supporting aviation aprons. This design allows military aircraft to remain on standby and take off anytime and anywhere in response to emergency operations. Greatly improve the combat efficiency of military aircraft.

Cons of Military Hangars

High Cost

A qualified military hangar requires a huge space to accommodate various military aircraft. And it needs a complete safety system and supporting inspection, maintenance, repair and other military equipment. This means that building a qualified military hangar requires more construction costs than a private airplane hangar, as well as more facility costs.

Complex Design

Several factors must be considered before a military hangar is even built.

For example, the size and functional zoning of the hangar need to be determined by factors. Factors such as the size and number of aircraft used, the size of maintenance facilities and professional maintenance personnel. Another example is the need to plan the functions of a hangar by determining its strategic position in a military base. If the hangar is only used as a temporary building, then you can consider not applying some strategic anti-aircraft missiles and other enemy defense technologies.

Considering these factors, the construction and design of military hangars is quite complex, requires knowledge and technology in multiple professional fields, and needs to be completed by a professional design team.

Benefits of Choosing Shelter’s Airplane Hangar
