Does any authorities and/or aviation approvals have been acquired by your company?

No building permits, licenses or approvals are required, due to the temporary portable typology of BUILDAIR structures. This allows to ease the delivery process and to reduce lead times, saving time and money.

 

Additionally, our H45 hangar delivered to Lufthansa Technik has been included in their EASA 145 approval, so civil aircraft MRO tasks can be performed inside of it.

What types and intervals of maintenance are required to keep the hangar serviceable?

Due to the real-time tracing of all involved parameters by means of the Automatic Control System, BUILDAIR structures maintenance is simple, and can be adapted to every client specific operation and peak seasons. As an example:

  • A daily-weekly external visual inspection
  • General inspection every 2-4 months by BUILDAIR staff
  • Detailed inspection every 12 months by BUILDAIR staff
Are there any special requirements for storage (humidity, temperature, UV protection)?

For storage periods up to 6 months, it is enough to keep the containers in a dry location, with normal range of temperatures, and protected from external weather conditions (any covered enclosure is enough).
