was at Sun N Fun with his TP1000
aircraft hangar. The hangar comes in three sections, a left wing
box, a right wing box, and the center section.
At the factory they remove the left and right wing
boxes, set them in the center section and put them on a special
trailer, for transport down the highway as a wide
This makes the unit mobile and portable. If for
some reason you had to move the hangar on your airfield or to
another field it can simply be disassembled, and moved.
The hangars are available in both kit form and
wide load form. In kit form it takes about 3 days to have the hangar
ready to use. Tools needed to do the assembly are regular screw

The TP1000 hangar is manufactured
with high grade welded tubular red oxide primed steel, max
ribbed galvanized steel panels, and baked enamel steel siding. The main
door is spring loaded and is retracted into the ceiling using a boat
style hand winch, which can be stopped in any position while going
up or down.
The left and right wing box doors bi-fold in on top
mounted rollers. The unit locks on 6 places on the main door,
plus two locks on each wing box door. This secures the hangar from
wind and vandals. An access door is located
in either the left or right hand wing box section.
The standard hangar is manufactured
for a 55 lbs. snow load and the unit can be engineered for up to a
95 lbs. snow load at additional cost. The TP1000 on display was
manufactured for 140 mph wind load, with a 30 lbs. live load.
The hangar can be located on a
concrete pad, pavement, or any hard service.
