The T-hangar units at Paine Field are the most common type of storage space for aircraft with wingspan up to about 40 feet. These units are widely spread throughout the Central and West Ramps and are also available as condominium units on the east ramp. These types of hangars are extremely versatile as they provide ample room for most general aviation aircraft as well as space for a tool bench and a few cabinets to store aircraft equipment, tools, etc.
All of the T-hangars at Paine Field have sliding doors for an opening, with some doors sliding inside and along the walls of the unit and others sliding in front of the neighboring hangar. All of the doors are easy to operate and can be opened or closed with a few easy pushes or pulls. All T-hangars are secured with an airport provided padlock and have cane bolts that can be set from inside the hangar for additional security. The existing, older style T-hangars which are located on the central ramp and the west ramp are constructed to an S-5 occupancy (allows for minor parts swapping and minor maintenance of aircraft), have approximately 15-amps of power, have one to two lights on the ceiling, and have one or two power receptacles designed for 110V.
The new T-hangar units located on the west ramp are slightly larger in size and have a number of additional amenities that make them attractive to the kit-builders or those who perform their own maintenance. All of the new T-hangars were constructed to meet an H-5 occupancy rating (allows for more advanced repairs and additional maintenance on aircraft) and are sprinkled for additional safety. These units also have approximately 20-amps of individually metered power, two fluorescent light fixtures, four power receptacles, two man-doors for easy entrance and exit, and have windows in the sliding doors for additional lighting. In addition, these units allow the tenant the ability to upgrade the power to a 220v system using existing or new conduit and the installation of additional cable (please fill out the tenant improvement form and submit it to the airport office prior to beginning any work of this type).
