PlaneSense tests hangar fire extinguishing system


Fractional-share provider PlaneSense has completed a five-yearly functional test of its emergency fire extinguishing system in its 40,000ft2 hangar at its Portsmouth International Airport headquarters in New Hampshire. In the event of a fire, 25 gallons of non-toxic foam is fired from ducts in the hangar ceiling to extinguish the flames.

The hangar makes up half of the company’s 88,000 ft2 office complex to service PlaneSense’s fleet of nearly 40 aircraft, including the largest civilian squadron of Pilatus PC-12s. Around 60 aircraft mechanics and line staff work inside the hangar on any given day.
