TX Aircraft Hangar Design: Sizes, Layouts, Amenities, Costs

Developing an aircraft hangar with an airstrip in Texas involves several key design considerations to ensure the facility is functional, safe, and efficient. JRH Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc. provides a wide array of civil, environmental, and structural engineering design services to help you create the perfect hangar for your needs.


Popular Hangar Sizes

Hangar sizes can range from smaller T-hangars (e.g., 40'x32') to larger box hangars (e.g., 60'x50' or 120'x120')[5]. The size of the hangar should be based on the type and number of aircraft it will accommodate, as well as any additional facilities or amenities that may be required.


Hangar Layouts Designs


Hangar layouts typically include space for aircraft storage and maneuvering, as well as access to taxiways and runways[1]. Some hangars may also feature additional facilities such as restrooms, pilot lounges, and maintenance areas. The layout should be designed to optimize the use of space and ensure efficient traffic flow for both aircraft and vehicles.


Hangar Amenities

Amenities in hangars can include electricity, water, sewer, phone lines, and high-speed internet access[7]. Some hangars may also offer conference rooms, pilots' lounges, and kitchenettes. These amenities can enhance the functionality and comfort of the hangar for its users.


Building Unit Costs

The cost of building an aircraft hangar in Texas can vary depending on the size, type, and location of the hangar. Rental rates for T-hangars can range from $125 to $600 per month, while purchase prices for T-hangars can range from $10,000 to $40,000[2]. Box hangars can cost from $20,000 upwards. A 3,000 SF hangar for lease at Aero Country Airport is listed at $2,500 per month, and a 14,400 SF commercial aircraft hangar at Denton Enterprise Airport is listed for sale at $1,149,000[1].
