Welcome! We ask all our hangar hosts to provide specific measurements of the hangar space they wish to rent out. This helps provide renters with confidence that their aircraft will fit in the space you’re providing. The first challenge is ensuring the aircraft will fit through the hangar door, and the second is to make sure the internal dimensions will accommodate their aircraft type. So we’ve provided blank 3-D diagrams for you to fill out for the most common types, the box hangar and the t-hangar. The easiest way to accomplish these measurements is with a standard tape measure and a piece of chalk to measure, mark, and add for a total length (unless you have an extra-long tape measure). Fill these diagram measurements out with a dark legible pen or marker. Please make note of any special objects/obstructions that are permanent or semi-permanent fixtures inside your hangar, such as set of cabinets/shelves or light fixtures hanging from the ceiling; anything that could pose an issue for accommodating a new aircraft type in your hangar. Including pictures of the interior of the hangar will help renters understand any obstructions.

For Multiple Occupancy Hosts (single occupancy hosts can skip to next paragraph)
For those that are going be creating a listing for “Multiple Occupancy (shared space)” hangar, you’ll need to fill out two diagrams. First, the 3-D diagram with the full dimensions of the hangar, and a second 2-D diagram with specific measurements for the space that is available on that listing. The easiest way to accomplish these measurements is to mark off this space available on the hangar floor with two long rectangles, a rectangle for the fuselage including tail, and a rectangle for the wings. These rectangles are referred to as the “Wing Box” and the “Fuselage Box” on the diagram. While marking off this space, consider using markers that you can leave in place for the renter, to clearly direct them where to place their aircraft. If you have a clean hangar floor most people can accomplish this by marking the corners of the Fuselage Box and Wing Box with high visibility (yellow or orange) duct tape.

Now, take pictures of your completed diagrams and upload them to your listing. While you’re out taking measurements of your hangar, don’t forget to take a few pictures of the inside and outside of the hangar.

Lastly, if you have a renter asking for your help to find standard measurements for their aircraft you can direct them to the links below.
