In May 2020, a pneumohangar was installed for the Aviation Rescue Centre of EMERCOM of Russia at the Khabarovsk Tsentralny airdrome.
Before assembling the hanger, the Client had to maintain and repair Mi-8, Mi-26 helicopters and An-74, Be-200ChS airplanes on the open air. Low temperatures and strong wind made the technicians’ work hard, that’s why it was needed to create a reliable shelter, which could accommodate different types of air vehicles, as soon as possible.
The solution was a mobile aviation hangar with internal dimensions 40х45 meters and 22 meters high completed with 37 m wide and 13 m high pneumatic gates, heating system, light system, and fire alarm system. A permit for construction was not needed for assembling the pneumohangar, the structure was installed on the site made from airfield slabs close to the flight strip. The new pneumohangar allows creating comfortable working conditions for staff, increase the speed and quality of aircraft maintenance.
