A Guide to Selecting the Right Airplane Hangars

6 June 2024   General

Airplane hangars are essential to protect the multimillion-dollar investments aircraft owners make when they purchase private jets, prop planes, and helicopters. Monmouth Jet Center is committed to meeting client needs, and our services include leasing out affordable aircraft hangars.

Monmouth Jet Center is a 20-minute helicopter ride or a one-hour drive from the center of Manhattan and is conveniently located for corporate and private airplane hangars. Below our experts share the basics on aircraft hangar space.

Exploring Different Types of Aircraft Hangars and Their Uses

Monmouth Jet Center provides pre-built common-use hangars, t-hangars, and larger aircraft hangers with attached office space. Corporate flight operators, Part 135 operators, and other interested parties can do a build-out in existing buildings or design and build a custom hangar. Let’s look at the different types of aircraft hangars and their uses:

T-hangars: Single-story hangars shaped like a “T” and used for smaller aircraft. 

Box hangars: Rectangular hangars designed to accommodate larger aircraft or multiple smaller aircraft.

Corporate hangars: Custom-designed hangars with amenities such as offices and lounges, accommodating multiple aircraft. 

Helicopter hangars: Specialized hangars solely designed to accommodate helicopters.

Maintenance hangars: Large hangars designed for aircraft repairs and maintenance.

Disaster relief operations often use portable hangars, and military hangars are large with extensive security features. Monmouth Jet Center does not charge a landing fee for military aircraft refueling at the airport.

Designing your Hangar For Optimal Space and Efficiency

Every private airplane hangar is designed to meet the owner’s needs. There are a few essentials to consider when you design a jet hangar. Airplane hangars must adhere to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), local and state building requirements, as well as the design limitations and criteria set by the airport where the hangar is based.  

How can you design jet hangars for optimal space and efficiency? Ensure the hangar area is large enough to allow the aircraft to maneuver in and out of the building. The kind of services you want to offer inside the hangar also affects the design. Corporate flight operators will require office areas, lounges, and restrooms to maintain professional client services. Sustainable design is increasingly incorporated into all building designs, and jet hangar designers should consider how to optimize energy efficiency within the aircraft hangar.

Protecting your Investment

6 September 2022   Monmouth Jet Center

Your aircraft is a valuable investment that deserves to be cared for and protected. When not in use, you likely store your aircraft in a hangar, and  for those who don’t have their own hangars, renting is the best option. Did you know you can request a hangar ahead of time to ensure your aircraft is secure and protected from the elements? 

At Monmouth Jet Center we have short-term hangar rentals available for a range of different types of aircraft, and unlike large commercial airports, there’s no waiting list when you choose to request a hangar with us. 

Request a Hangar 

Planning a trip often involves a long to-do list, so be sure you add “request a hangar” to your list! Requesting a hangar with us is simple and straightforward, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. As soon as you know the dates you’ll be storing your aircraft, please give us a call so we can reserve a hangar for you and have it ready upon your arrival. 

If you’ve ever tried to rent hangar space at a commercial airport then you know availability can be scarce and sometimes you have to add your name to a waiting list. Unless you plan a year in advance there’s no guarantee that a hangar will be available when you need it. At smaller, executive airports like Monmouth Jet Center, we have year-round availability and we’re conveniently located close to the Jersey Shore, and just an hour drive to New York City, and several other popular vacation destinations. 

Keep Your Investment Safe 

Storing your aircraft in a hangar is essential to keeping it in top condition. Hangars protect your aircraft from the elements. In the same way you wouldn’t leave an expensive car parked outside on the street overnight, you shouldn’t leave your aircraft exposed and unprotected. When you rent a hangar from us you can rest assured that your aircraft is safe while you enjoy your trip. 

Short Term Hangars at Monmouth 

Short-term hangar rentals at Monmouth Jet Center are flexible and suited to your needs. Whether you’re traveling for business and only need a hangar for a few days, or you and your family are taking a summer vacation to the Jersey Shore and you’re interested in renting a hangar for a week or two, we have options for you. Although we can usually always accommodate you upon short notice, we recommend you plan ahead if possible, so please give us a call when you know your travel dates so we can reserve a hangar for your aircraft.

How To Prepare an Aircraft for Long Term Storage

12 July 2022   Around the Airport

As most pilots would agree they want to fly as often as possible, however life sometimes has other plans. If you find yourself needing long term storage for your aircraft, there are a few things you should consider. If you don’t already keep your aircraft in a hangar when you’re not using it, you should consider renting a hanger as it will best protect your investment. Leaving an aircraft on an outside tie down long term, while not using it often is a recipe for additional maintenance costs. 

Hanger Space is your Best Option 

If you won’t be using your aircraft for the foreseeable future, hangar space is the best option to protect your plane from elements like moisture which can cause multiple hush cost problems, birds looking for refuge and even sun damage which can fade your paint job, and the interior of your aircraft. The rent you pay for a hangar could pale in comparison to the kinds of expensive repairs an inactive plan stuck outside may need in 6 months. Inside a hanger you will keep your aircraft safe and keep the maintenance bill as low as possible.

What to Consider When Looking for a Hangar

Generally you can look at a wider range of airport locations when shopping for the best deal on hangars for storage, because proximity isn’t as important as it would be for frequent fliers. Monmouth Airport actually houses a number of aircraft for NY based clientele who enjoy the lower hangar rents than NY area airports, but they can still get from the city to their jet in an hour by car, or 20 minutes by helicopter.

Additionally, hangar spaces come in different sizes, so it’s important to make sure you get something big enough to comfortably house your aircraft but also not so big that you are paying for wasted space.  All hangar spaces should offer electricity and water, if you need to vacuum, wash, or preheat and charge your aircraft battery. Some hangars at Monmouth Airport are also heated or come with a small flight office particularly helpful for small commercial operators. 

Hangars at Monmouth Jet Center 

Monmouth Jet Center has affordable hangars available where you will be paying a fraction of the price they charge at a busy airport like Teterboro. Additionally in most cases you don’t have to be on a waiting list for a hangar, they normally have them available immediately. Because you choose to store your aircraft at a smaller airport, you also enjoy lower fuel costs and a more relaxed class 2 airspace compared to the hectic airspace at a busy NY airport. Give our experts at Monmouth Jet Center a call today to answer any questions.
