Hangars for Sailplanes

The Ensign Hangar lets you fly in the time it takes to open the electric doors, roll your plane out, and do a pre-flight check. At the end of the day, just roll your plane into the hangar and flip a switch to close the doors. You will be ready to go home in as little as five minutes. The Ensign Hangar offers the convenience of leaving your plane without the worry of sun, wind, rain, or sand damage.

The Ensign Hangar is sold turnkey (delivered and assembled) or as a kit. In kit form, all of the parts required for a completely functional hangar are supplied. The kit includes an assembly manual with photos or drawings to clarify the assembly process. Every effort has been taken to ensure that you will have a trouble-free assembly experience and that you will be satisfied with the finished product. The best materials have been chosen for each specific part of the hangars to provide years of trouble-free use.
