A group of pilots and commercial real estate experts has launched Hangar Tonight™ — a web-based and mobile application that connects pilots who temporarily need hangar space for their aircraft as they fly across the country.
In the United States, there are nearly 225,000 general aviation aircraft in use, and those pilots need a place to house their aircraft when they arrive at their destination. Additionally, the U.S. has more than 19,000 general aviation airfields.
Instead of searching multiple websites or making numerous calls, pilots can use this app or website to book up to 29 nights for their aircraft in cities around the nation.
This service offers asset protection to aircraft owners, as well as additional income for hangar owners with spare capacity.
“I started Hangar Tonight™ because I saw a need for short-notice hangar options for pilots and owners as they fly to different airfields throughout the USA. I witnessed firsthand the damage that extreme weather and the environment can do in a very short space of time,” said Brendan Clarke, founding owner.
Hangar Tonight™ targets hangar owners who realize they can capitalize on their spare space to gain extra income by providing a short-term solution to pilots and aircraft owners who are transiting their airfield. As many hangar owners are also pilots, they understand they may require similar services when they travel to other destinations.
“I believe there are opportunities for pilots to protect their aircraft in a hangar overnight at minimal costs and for hangar owners with spare capacity to generate a little income,” Clarke said.
