Leading the way in standalone light aircraft storage
We understand the importance of keeping your aircraft in the best condition, ready to take to the sky at a moment’s notice. That’s why our Pioneer hangar leads the way in standalone aircraft storage – with its easy access, generous internal space and fully insulated roof sheet, the Pioneer provides the ideal environment to house your light aircraft and makes a great alternative to the steel shed.
Inside the structure, the Pioneer provides a safe and secure space to protect your aircraft, delivering a comfortable and easily maintained environment for you to work in when on the ground. A large uninterrupted single-span gives you complete freedom and access to your aircraft during care and servicing.
The internal environment is dramatically enhanced by a three-meter wide translucent window strip that fills the internal space with diffused natural light. The roof sheet is also fully insulated as standard – a high-performance insulated core allows the building to easily control temperatures and minimise any condensation, ensuring your aircraft is kept in top condition.
Aircraft access is provided by a manually operated sliding the door; simple to open, close and fasten shut the hangar door gives you fast access to the air and confidence in security on the ground.
The Pioneer light aircraft hangar provides generous access of 11.70m x 3.0m. The hangar’s structure is manufactured from 60.3mm (section) Z35 hot-dip galvanized steel tube, providing superior structural integrity along with a lasting and high-quality finish. Cross bracing is fitted at every bay creating a robust structure, ensuring stability in adverse weather conditions.
600gm insulated PVC cladding gives the structure a high-quality resilient finish lasting 25 years or more. Once fitted and tensioned, the PVC forms part of the building’s structure, secured in place with aluminium grip rail and ratcheted tension straps. The PVC is easily maintained and simple to repair in the case of any accidental damage.
Hangar access is provided by a manually operated & lockable PVC curtain door. Reinforced with steel uprights every metre, the door is easily fastened shut using our two-point ratchet closure system.
Appropriate ground fixing types are specified to suit the ground the hangar will be installed on, ensuring a long-lasting and stable structure at every site. The structure can be anchored on a grass strip with concrete embedded anchors or fixed to a concrete pad with a plated anchor.
The Pioneer hangar has been designed and manufactured for ‘self-build’ construction/ installation and comes with detailed instructions for assembly. If required installation can be provided as part of a comprehensive supply package within mainland Britain.
The Pioneer hangar is packed and dispatched as a palletised kit and can be delivered worldwide.
