Aircraft hangars from Alaska Structures can be custom-designed to any size requirements.

Fabric Aircraft Hangars Designed for Durability

Each airplane hangar from Alaska Structures is engineered with one purpose in mind: unmatched durability. When it comes to experience and expertise, Alaska Structures has designed, engineered, manufactured, and delivered more than 65,000 custom-designed fabric building systems to more than 70 countries

Alaska Structures takes a unique approach to designing aircraft hangars for dependability. Our  in-house engineers verify that our one-of-a-kind building designs will meet the wind and snow loads required by local or international building codes for safety. When working in life-threatening conditions, safety and the protection of valuable assets (like mission-critical aircraft) must be a priority in the decision-making process.

Aircraft Hangars Designed for Function and Portability

By design, fabric buildings from Alaska Structures are much more portable than steel buildings, tilt-up or precast buildings, and conventional building methods. We offer long-lasting building solutions capable of being installed and used year-round, for decades, or temporary aircraft hangars that are easily set  up and used for the duration of your remote project.

Custom-Designed Aircraft Hangars

Airport hangars can be large structures, but space on the tarmac is often limited. Having the option to build your hangar to specification and expand the facility as needed is an invaluable asset to any aviation official. 

Our open span buildings can be up to 150 feet wide and tailored to any side-wall height or length to meet your airport hangar needs, ensuring that your aircraft will fit securely in the hangar with plenty of room to spare. 

Take advantage of that extra space by doubling your hangar as a refueling station or repair space, or add partitions to increase your storage options. You can also add more structures to provide additional support structures for fuel storage, on-site warehousing, sorting facilities, airport fire stations, and custom-designed structures for airport terminals to protect work crews and staff while waiting for flights.

Furthermore, Alaska Structures' fabric buildings have minimal foundation requirements, allowing them to be quickly deployed on virtually any level surface. See our Technology and Engineering page for more information on how our fabric structures are constructed.

With numerous sizes and styles available, your airplane hangar can double as a storage area or repair shop in addition to housing your aircraft. We can also design Alaska Structures fabric buildings to include proprietary insulation systems, lighting and electrical systems, and HVAC systems to create a temperature-controlled aircraft hangar.

Designed to Local or International Building Codes for Safety

Fabric airport hangars from Alaska Structures are designed to meet the wind and snow loads outlined by  international and local building codes. 

A Multipurpose Fabric Building Designed for Flexibility

Winter weather storage facilities must perform to expectations during inclement weather, but rather than packing them up when the mercury rises again, utilizing this additional covered space can provide many opportunities to an airport. 

Extra luggage storage, equipment housing, maintenance and repair facilities, and even private sponsored event space are all possible with multipurpose fabric buildings.

    I learned a lot about fabric air hangars by reading this article. I like how you explained that hangars can help to hold airplane and sponsored events. I hope that I can remember this article if I ever own a plane in the future.
