• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Build a Hangar

Hi, guys and gals, I'm new here. My name is Matt and I'm a bush pilot in Papua New Guinea, an island in the South Pacific. We are starting a missionary flying program and plan to build a hangar in the middle of the jungle.

I have been trying to find some pole-barn type design for the hangar, since we can get all the wood cut locally. We would only have to fly in (that's right--all hardware has to be flown in...no roads in our area!) the bolts, roofing sheets, etc. But the framing can be done locally. So that puts a quonset hut or steel building on the outs for us.

I think we have found a simple door-the "Ultimate Door" which uses a hand powered winch to lift and swing the door out of the way via cables and pulleys.

I'm trying to find some design plans for a pole barn type hangar that would be about 40-50 feet wide by 30-40 feet deep. We will be hangaring a Cessna 206 inside it.

If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to drop your "two cents."

Happy Flying and always land with your wheels on the shady side.
