The Hangar is a basic aerial building in Civilization VI. It is built in the Aerodrome district (or one of its replacements).

  • Effects:
    • +2 (1 in GS-Only.png) air unit slots in this District District
    • +25% combat experience for all air units trained in this city
    • +2 Production Production

Strategy[edit | edit source]

In addition to a small Production Production boost, the Hangar increases its Aerodrome's air unit capacity and provides all such units built there with bonus XP. It is wise to build it in perimeter cities or those that you intend to turn into air bases.

Civilopedia entry[edit | edit source]

Ships need docks; airplanes need hangars. It was quickly discovered that the early heavier-than-air craft tended to need protection from the weather, repair, and constant maintenance, and all of this was best done inside cavernous structures made of wood and fabric (now, virtually all hangars are made of metal and/or concrete). The bigger the aircraft, the bigger the hangar necessary; XXL hangars (more than 120 meters across) are used to house the world’s largest aircraft: the Airbus A380, Antonov 225, and Boeing 747. But the largest hangars in civilization were those built for the zeppelins and dirigibles, such as the U.S. Navy’s Hangar 1 located at Lakehurst (the site of the Hindenburg disaster). From the S to the XXL, hangars are vital to the operations of military airfields and civilian airports in this fast-paced era (thus, hangars are prime targets in any modern war).
