In April 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.
