Fabric Airplane Hangars

Aviation Buildings and Airplane Hangars

Alaska Structures® is the world's leading fabric building provider since 1975, with hundreds of fabric airplane and helicopter hangars in use in more than 60 countries. Alaska Structures' aircraft hangars and airport buildings are expertly engineered tension fabric using the latest IBC Building Code, ASCE/SEI 7, and AISC design standards.

Alaska Structures airplane and helicopter hangars are:

  • Tested on-site to withstand wind and snow loads of the airport area.
  • Hold any size aircraft along with luggage and storage areas.
  • Outlast many aircraft hangars that would fail in inclement weather.
  • Built for fast installation and portability to almost any airfield in the world.

One of the most popular product options for airplane hangars is the GTX Series, known for its ability to withstand harsh conditions. For larger aircraft needs, the GTX Series is also one of the largest at Alaska Structures. While available from 16 feet to 150 feet wide, these fabric structures can be manufactured to any length.

Along with the lightweight MTX Series, Alaska Structures manufactures hundreds of size and style combinations uniquely suited for the aviation and aerospace industry.

Possible applications of fabric structures for aircraft include:

  • Airplane Hangars
  • Helicopter Hangars
  • Air Cargo Facilities
  • Ground Support Buildings
  • Equipment Storage

Many of the features standard in Alaska Structures fabric buildings make them the perfect airplane hangars.

Your frame options vary depending on your needs, but all airplane hangar frames are constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum or galvanized steel.
