Hangar Space – Buy vs. Build

8 June 2020   Hangar Space

Small and private aircraft such as planes and helicopters are investments that require particular storage space. An airplane hangar ensures the safety and upkeep of your aircraft while in storage. Monmouth services most kinds of private aircraft from helicopters and prop planes, to multi-engine Gulfstream charter Jets. We have common-use hangars, t-hangars, and larger aircraft hangars with attached office space to set-up your corporate flight department. 

Airplanes, while very strong and durable in flight, are downright fragile on the ground. An aircraft can shoot through icing temperatures and turbulence in flight without any issue an then be completely dismantled on the ground due to gusting wind, rain and ultraviolet rays.  

But what are the options available to hangar an aircraft, and what is your best option?

Rent vs. build

The designated purpose of the aircraft plays a big role in decision making. If your aircraft is used for recreation and light business travel (think Cessna, Piper, or Beechcraft singles and twins), you might want to consider renting. For aircraft owners who fly occasionally and greatly just for pleasure, the investment of building their own hangar might not add up. But if you do want to invest in an airplane hangar of your own, you can reap from several benefits that you won’t get with renting.

The cost to build an airplane hangar is indeed suggested a serious purchase. In particular, the high cost comes with custom-designed and spaces with unique systems. However, the price alone shouldn’t be your only considerations when contemplating whether to rent or build. Other factors to consider are :


Airplanes come in different shapes and sizes, with different wingspans, auxiliary propellers, and other parts that take up space. Guiding the aircraft in and out of the hangar requires plenty of space. Renting an airplane hangar can limit your choices for customization while building a custom hangar allows you to design your space to accommodate your particular storage and space needs.


If you rent a hangar, there is a possibility that you can run into some problems if the owner rents the space to other pilots. For example, if you fly in at a particular or unscheduled time, you may find your hangar occupied. This can be very frustrating,a hassle, and even amount to additional costs. Building and having your own hangar allows you to avoid any unforeseen problems out of your control.

Reduced costs:

Although renting an airplane hangar might instantly be cheaper than building your own hangar, letting space can be painfully costly. Especially for occasional flyers or businesses that don’t regularly use their aircraft. If you build an airplane storage facility instead, you can use your hangar when you need it, preventing unnecessary costs. Even if you make use of a loan to build your hangar, you will save on costs in the future. You can rather have monthly repayments that go into the space that you’ll eventually own than paying rent forever. 

 Safety and security:

A hangar is more than merely a large garage or warehouse. The

asset(s) it protects requires functional storage space to keep them in top shape and best performance. Although leased hangars are able to withstand the harsh weather, building a hanger allows you to ensure protection on your terms. 

 Revenue- enhancing:

If your airplane hangar is situated in a popular area, you can take advantage of unused space by renting it out to other pilots. Additionally, if you ever decide not to use your hanger anymore you have the choice to rent out the entire area or sell it when the time is right. This makes owning your hangar a profitable scheme.

Challenge & Safety concerns to the Aviation Industry

20 May 2020   General

The aviation industry is perhaps facing the worst ever turbulence in history. The coronavirus has shrunk the sky incredibly with all airlines cutting operations drastically. While China has been dealing with the challenge since January 2020 the situation has turned grim in Europe, the US, and India. 

The challenges being faced by airlines 

We are seeing an increase in infections around the world and this has led to travel restrictions being imposed across the globe hitting the aviation industry the hardest. Several foreign and international carriers have canceled flights to and from nationally and have also shut itself for foreign nationals as well as overseas citizens. Many companies are grounding Airlines as net bookings have slipped into negative and now affecting employees, with some of the largest carriers in the world talking about salary cuts for its senior management pilots and crews.

Can the situation get worse from here? Well, no one knows how long the coronavirus crisis will last and this has led to air travel demand drying up and airline stocks crashing. Aviation Consultancy Center for Asia-pacific aviation or coppa has said that the COVID 19 pandemic will push most airlines across the globe to bankruptcy by the end of May. The only thing that is preventing airlines from collapsing earlier is the price of crude oil which is at its lowest in recent history. It has also been said that a donated action by governments and industry might be able to save the airline industry.

Safety concerns 

Flight attendants are on the front lines of any communicable disease outbreak and the association of flight attendants is very attentive to what’s happening around the world. They have called upon all of the Airlines to take precautions starting with giving crews the most current information and making it very clear what they should be on the lookout for. Of course with this particular virus, there are concerned that an asymptomatic infected person can spread the disease so airport screenings and looking out for symptoms during the flight may not necessarily protect people from the disease. It needs to be very clear who is traveling from highly infected areas and keep a close eye on them. Flight attendants should wear gloves and masks or protective equipment at all times to protect themselves from COVID-19.  

Airlines must make sure that there are enough gloves and masks for those who need it on the flight. That is all of the crew members, any medical personnel who may assist during the flight, and any passengers who may start experiencing symptoms. From what we know you can be infected without experiencing symptoms meaning you could be able to pass the disease along without showing common signs of infection. This is very problematic as flight attendants or passengers are at high risk of being infected without knowing it. 

The air circulation in a plain is certainly concerning but what’s most concerning is the crew who have direct interaction with an infected passenger. The crew has to deliver food, pick up food as well as take rubbish from passengers meaning crew is placed in very hazardous situations. Airlines need to persist that crew wears gloves and masks at all times on these flights in and out of infected areas so they can protect themselves properly.
