I am in the process of gathering information to build a wood frame type hangar at our airport in Wyoming. I have a Cessna 172c and would like to make sure that a Cessna 182 would also fit. I have looked at your dimensions and they appear to be roughly the same size. I think a 40' Hydraulic door with at least 10' of top clearance will fit my application. Could you please provide me a price and any aditional info that may help me.

I am having a 50 wide X 48 long X 16 high, wood framed, float plane hanger constructed. The contractor wants me to decide on what brand/type door to use. I have built two hangers in the past and have some bi-fold experience. I am not exactly sure as to what you are asking about the clear openings, but I would like a a 14 ft usable hydraulic door height opening and a minimum 46 ft wide door opening. One of the questions the contractor has, is how much does the door weigh and how is the door weight distributed. Feel free to call and or e-mail.
