50 Airports and the Newest Generation of General Aviation Aircraft Table 5-9. Common types of hangar facilities. A grouping of hangars in a rectangular shaped building. The name is derived from T-hangar the shape that the hangar within the rectangular building takes in the form of a T. Typical T-hangars have door widths of approximately 45 feet. A square or rectangular-shaped hangar with large open-bay spaces capable of accommodating multiple aircraft in a community setting. Conventional hangars Conventional typically range in size from 75 feet by 75 feet to upwards of 100,000 square feet Hangar per building. Such hangars are typically owned and operated by an FBO. Conventional hangars are also referred to as community hangars. A square or rectangular-shaped hangar that usually stands alone and is designed primarily to accommodate the business aircraft operations of a single company or Executive (Box) individual who may or may not service (and stage) their own aircraft. Executive Hangar hangars are typically larger than stand-alone T-hangars, but smaller than most corporate hangars. In many cases, office, shop, and/or storage space is located within the structure. A square or rectangular-shaped hangar similar to a conventional hangar, but used to Corporate accommodate the business aircraft operations of a single company who typically Hangar services (and stages) its own aircraft. Corporate hangars, which typically stand alone, are usually larger than executive hangars. Source: Aerofinity, Inc. ground to a private developer who, in turn, constructs hangar facilities. In either case, the opera- tor may want to develop specific construction guidelines to be followed. If an airport has received FAA grant funds, it is important that leases are at fair market value to meet FAA grant assurances. 5.5.4 Commercial Operations Commercial operations, particularly on-demand air taxi and per-seat on-demand, may require additional ground handling services. Although the services identified in Table 5-10 could apply to all aircraft regardless of flight purpose, these services may be more important in serving commer- cial operations whose passengers may be less familiar with GA. 5.6 Landside Development Landside facilities support airport activity by accommodating aircraft operators and passengers transitioning between the landside and airside environments. These facilities are the interface between the airport and the community. The interrelationship between various landside facilities Figure 5-9. T-hangar dimensions.
