Some hobby shops are just that shops, places where you buy the things you need for your interest. Well Hobby Hangar is more than a store it's a place of expertise, a where you can hang out talk with others and get the sound advice you need before your next purchase. See what makes Hobby Hangar different:
In 1986, when Kwang had outgrown the back of his parent's Hallmark Gift Store, he opened the first Hobby Hangar location in Sunset Business Park in Herndon, VA. As the shop's popularity grew so did the need for larger retail space in so in 1989 Hobby Hangar moved to a larger store.
By 1991, the R/C electric-car scene had exploded and Kwang saw a need for a place for people to race their cars. Hobby Hangar moved once again, and this time to Brookfield Corporate Drive in Chantilly, where they opened an indoor carpeted race track.
In 1995, Hobby hangar moved to it's current location in Sullyfield Circle. The new location provided 3,000 square feet, which has since doubled to 6,000.
With 2007, Hobby hangar is proud to celebrate it's 20th anniversary servicing Northern Virginia hobby enthusiasts. They are extremely excited about the technological advances in electric flight for airplanes and helicopters, making the activities accessible to more people.
