How To Maintain Your Helicopter Hangar

Keep It Clean & Organized

Perhaps the most important maintenance tip for keeping your aircraft hangar maintained is to keep it clean and organized. Make it a habit to routinely clean and organize your hangar to prevent any hazards from those walking in and out of it. Using a Heliwagon can help keep your hangar organized very easily.

Think About Fire Safety

At any given moment, your hangar could be full of valuables that can quickly be destroyed in a fire. Ensure that you are keeping a fire extinguisher in your hangar, as well as keeping items away from electrical boxes and electrical wiring.

Be Aware Of FOD

FOD, Foreign Object Damage, is the most common cause of aircraft damage and can compromise personal safety. Be aware of your operation areas and ramp areas to keep them clean and free of dangers when pulling your aircraft into your hangar.

Keep Your Hangar Doors Maintained

The doors on your hangar are quite large and will need to be routinely maintained to ensure proper operation. Rust, electrical issues, and mechanical issues are just a few of the main concerns when it comes to hangar doors. Keeping your door operating smoothly will ensure that you can keep them closed in severe weather as well as keep your valuables locked securely inside.
