Best Hangar in GTA Online

Usually, a hangar in GTA Online can store twenty aircraft of different sizes. Moreover, each hangar comes with a complimentary Cuban 800. You can find the relevant details below:

  • There is a capacity to store twelve small aircraft.
  • Five medium-sized aircraft.
  • Two large airborne vehicles.
  • and one extra large aircraft in a hangar.

Once the parking capacity is filled, the new or extra aircraft are sent to the storage. You can sell the extra aircraft in GTA Online and make money if you face a storage issue. Moreover, the facility comes pre-insured, which means you can get it back for only $1000 if it is destroyed in any way.

However, avoid parking the stolen aircraft in hangar facilities to prevent complications. In most cases, a hangar facility will not accept a stolen plane.

Airplanes are my favorite mode of transportation in GTA 5. Therefore, I think it is important for players to know some of the best hangers in GTA 5, so they can easily store their favorite aircraft.

Hangar can store up to twenty aircraft of different sizes

There are a total of five different hangar facilities. While the storage capacity is the same in all facilities, the significant price difference depends on the location, accessibility, and features of the storage facility.

Most players prefer the hangar, which is closer to their mission locations. Therefore, we have enlisted all the hangar facilities depending on their accessibility during missions.

LSIA Hangar A17

Best Affordable Hanger.
LSIA Hangar A17
Hangar A17 is the cheapest aircraft storing facility.

Why did I Choose Hanger A17?

Located in the Los Santos International Airport, Hangar A17 is the cheapest aircraft storage facility you can purchase. Players can buy Hangar A17 for just $ 1.2 million from the Maze Bank Foreclosures.

While it has the same features and storage capacity as the other expensive options, some cons still justify its low price.

For example, it does not have an appealing exterior design. The outer looks ancient and worn out, giving farmhouse-like vibes. The logo above the main entrance does not look attractive. Moreover, the main entrance door is relatively narrow. Consequently, you will have to be extra careful when passing your plane through the door.

Another issue arises because of its location deep inside the Los Santos Airport, which makes it difficult to swiftly access and hide your airborne vehicles during and after the missions. Regardless of all these cons, Hangar A17 is still the best choice for beginners in as it caters to most of their needs.

  • Affordable option.
  • Basic exterior.
  • Suitable for beginners.

  • Narrow entrance.
  • Lacks aesthetic appeal

LSIA Hangar 1

Best Looking Hanger.

Why did I Choose LSIA Hangar 1?

A little bit expensive, Hangar 1 has everything its counterpart lacks in Los Santos International Airport. Available for purchase from the Maze Bank Foreclosures for $15,25,000, Hangar 1 features a lucrative design and an attractive location within the airport.

The structure is safe and secured like a fort. Unlike its counterpart, Hangar 1 has a monumental entrance, and you can park even extra-large aircraft without any hesitation.

Hangar 1 is a better alternative to its counterpart at Los Santos International Airport.

While the design and location within the airport is its plus point, its overall location on the map becomes its only drawback. It is because the airport is in Los Santos while all the smuggling business is done in Paleto Bay and Sandy Shores. These two locations are far from the airport, and flying there is time-consuming.

Moreover, flying towards these locations will require you to pass over the area with the remaining three hangars. Flying over these locations without any clearance immediately grants you a wanted level.

Consequently, you can take severe damage from enemy attacks. Still, hanger 1 is the best choice among the two hangars in Los Santos airport.

  • Located in the airport.
  • Appealing design.
  • Spacious entrance.

  • Pricier option.
  • Distant from missions.

Fort Zancudo Hangar 3497

Best Zancudo Hanger.

Why did I Choose Fort Zancudo Hangar 3497?

Don’t be disappointed by the looks and size of this hangar. While the design and doors may look old and the area may look small, it would not matter once you know the other features like mid-map location.

Available for purchase on the Maze Bank Foreclosures for $2,085,000, Hangar 3497 is located at the best location in Blaine County.

Hangar 3497 is the cheapest among the three hangars in Fort Zancudo

While being the cheapest hangar in Fort Zancudo, Hangar 3497 is also the closest one to reach when entering the fort. Furthermore, the laser airplane of the base is closest to this hangar. Consequently, players can take the plane for a joyous ride whenever they want.

Its ideal location automatically makes it a worthy choice for the smuggling business. Another underappreciated perk of hangar 3497 is that players won’t get any wanted level after acquiring it.

  • Best Zancudo choice.
  • Affordable option.
  • Closest to entrance.

  • Risk of attacks.
  • Basic exterior.

Fort Zancudo Hangar 3499

Best Size Hanger.

Why did I Choose Zancudo Hangar 3499?

Hangar 3499 is located deep inside Fort Zancudo. The hangar is not worth the whopping $2,650,000 because of its location. As it is a Fort Zancudo hangar, you can avoid the wanted level and prevent many problems.

It has a broad front, and the doors are open enough to accommodate aircraft of any size.

The second aircraft facility in Fort Zancudo
Hangar 3499 is the second aircraft storage facility in Fort Zancudo.

The location also makes it a vulnerable choice as there will be an increased risk of attacks from opponents in the same area. Enemies can attack you and loot your profits from the smuggling business.

Consequently, it automatically becomes a wrong choice for running any business. It is not the best hangar on the list, but it is still a reliable storage facility for your aircraft.

  • Broad front.
  • Open doors.
  • Good size.

  • Riskier location.
  • Increased attacks.

Fort Zancudo Hangar A2

Best Overall Hanger.

Why did I Choose Zancudo Hangar A2?

At last, comes the final and the best hangar. Hangar A2 in Fort Zancudo is also the most expensive on the list, costing a whopping $3,250,000. Players can buy it from the Maze Bank Foreclosures.

Unlike other hangars on the list, hangar A2 has no drawbacks. Its location is its main selling point and completely justifies its price.

Hangar A2 is the best hangar.

While the interior of all the hangars is the same, and they offer more or less the same customizations, the exterior design and the size of the main entrance matter the most. Not to anyone’s surprise, Hangar A2 has an attractive exterior with a broad and tall entrance to accommodate airborne vehicles of any size.

It is located right in the center of Fort Zancudo. Therefore, players can get access to any nearby planes. Moreover, as the area is under the control of the military, you won’t have to worry about security clearance. The only drawback of Hangar A2 is its high price. You can earn quick money by finishing easy missions to buy this hangar.

Best aircraft storage facility
Hangar A2 has an attractive exterior and a wide entrance door to accommodate even the largest planes.

  • Best overall.
  • Attractive exterior.
  • Wide entrance.

  • Most expensive.
  • Riskier due to attacks.

Which One Is Best?

I would consider Fort Zancudo Hangar A2 best in GTA 5

In my experience, the Fort Zancudo Hangar A2 stands out as the premier choice for aircraft storage. Its attractive exterior, featuring a wide entrance capable of accommodating even the largest planes, sets it apart. Located centrally in Fort Zancudo, this hangar provides quick access to nearby planes without the hassle of security clearance, making it a strategic choice.

While it comes with a higher price tag, the benefits of a secure location and ease of access outweigh the cost. For players seeking the best combination of aesthetics, functionality, and convenience, I highly recommend investing in the Fort Zancudo Hangar A2.
