Word of the Month – Hangars, Not Hangers

By Ian Brown, EAA 657159, Editor, Bits and Pieces, Board Member, EAA Canada Council

July 2021 – It's amazing that a company in the business of renting T-hangars can't spell them!

Okay, I think we all know how to spell the word. It dates back to the French word for shed, “hangar” (pronounced “ongah”), which may have come from old Dutch or German words for an enclosure near a house or place where horses were shod.

OK, now I've got that off my chest, does anyone else have a pet peeve aviation spelling word?
