Helicopter maintenance hangars to be opened at Siauliai Air Force Base in Lithuania

Helicopter hangars for storage and maintenance will be opened at the Lithuanian army’s Air Force Base in Siauliai, northern Lithuania, on Tuesday, the Defense Ministry said.

An administrative building with workplaces has also been built next to the helicopter garage.

According to the ministry, the hangars are equipped with spaces for aviation equipment, aviation armament, mechanical equipment and engine maintenance, the storage of aviation oils and special fluids, rescue equipment and drying crew suits. The hangars and all component maintenance rooms are equipped with a compressed air supply system.

The construction of the hangars cost about 3.6 million euros and was carried out by Tilta.

On the eve of the opening, Defense Minister Arvydas Anusauskas posted on Facebook that the hangars would be adapted to the storage and servicing of the UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters to be acquired by Lithuania.

The first UH-60M Black Hawks will be delivered to Lithuania next year.
