The Journey to Your Aircraft Hangar

Planning and Design Phase

The journey begins with the planning and design phase, which includes initial consultations, drafting of plans, and obtaining the necessary permits. This phase can vary in length but typically takes several months. For a hangar size ranging from 3,500 to 10,000 square feet, one might expect the design phase to last anywhere from 1 to 3 months.

Construction Phase

Following the design phase, we move into construction. The construction phase can take anywhere from 9 to 18 months, depending on the complexity of the hangar design, materials used, and other factors such as contractor availability and weather conditions.

Certificate of Occupancy

Once construction is complete, the hangar must pass final inspections to ensure it meets all building codes and safety standards. After these inspections are passed, a certificate of occupancy is issued, which can take a few weeks to a month[4].

Unit Cost of the Hangar

The cost per square foot for building an aircraft hangar can vary widely. Industry sources suggest that the cost can range from $50 to $120 per square foot for a basic hangar, not including specialized systems or luxury finishes. For a more customized or high-end hangar, costs can be significantly higher.

Total Timeframe and Cost Summary

Combining all phases, the total time from design to certificate of occupancy for a private aircraft hangar in Southern Texas could range from approximately 12 to 24 months. For a hangar size of 3,500 to 10,000 square feet, the total construction cost (excluding land acquisition) would range from $175,000 to $1,200,000 based on the aforementioned cost-per-square-foot estimates.
