Whether your hangar is small or large it shares the same history of all hangars throughout the country. Hangar derives from the Middle French word hanghart, meaning enclosure near a house. Whether you picture the history of hangars as the Wright brothers wood hangar back in 1902 or Hangar No. 1 the first built hangar constructed in 1921, a hangar seeks to provide the same basic needs. At a basic level, the hangar itself aims to protect the investment that is currently being stored inside of it. However, in the new era, the hangar can be so much more than just a building, it can be a venue for enjoying the things and people that you love.
