What's the best Hangar to buy and how do you get rich from Smuggling in GTA Online? Hangars have two primary purposes in Los Santos: they provide a place for you to store your Personal Aircrafts and also allow you to launch the Free Trade Shipping Co app, which enables you to get rich from Smuggling. In this GTA Online guide, we're going to recommend the best Hangar to buy and also explain how to get rich from Smuggling.
GTA Online: Best Hangar to Buy
In order to get rich from Smuggling, you'll first need to decide upon the best Hangar to buy. You can buy Hangars from the Maze Bank Foreclosures website, using the Internet app on your smartphone. There are a total of 5 Hangars available to buy. They are:
- Fort Zancudo Hangar 3499: GTA$2,650,000
- Fort Zancudo Hangar A2: GTA$3,250,000
- Fort Zancudo Hangar 3497: GTA$2,085,000
- LSIA Hangar A17: GTA$1,200,000
- LSIA Hangar 1: GTA$1,525,000
The best Hangar to buy is one of the three located in Fort Zancudo, as these also give you clearance to access and fly over the heavily fortified military base. We'd recommend Fort Zancudo Hangar 3499, as this is located in a good area without many obstacles, allowing you to easily take off with your Personal Aircraft without obstruction.
In terms of Renovations, these are mostly cosmetic, although the Workshop adds a facility from which you can modify your Personal Aircrafts.
How Many Aircrafts Can Be Stored in a Hangar?
All of the Hangars in GTA Online can store a total of 20 Personal Aircrafts. You'll get a Cuban 800 for free, with your Hangar. Some of your Personal Aircrafts may be stored underground, meaning they won't be on display in your Hangar. You can display: 12 Small, 5 Medium, 2 Large, or 1 Extra Large aircrafts in your Hangar at once. Using the Personal Aircraft Management menu at the rear of your Hangar, you can choose which aircraft you want to display and how they're arranged around the floor.
GTA Online: How to Get Rich from Smuggling?
The computer in your Hangar's office allows you to access the Free Trade Shipping Co app. In order to access it, you'll need to know How to Become a CEO or How to Become a Motorcycle Club President, which you can learn through the links.
This is one of the more straightforward businesses in the game, as you're simply Sourcing goods and Selling them. There are eight types of goods available for you to source. They are:
- Medical Supplies
- Animal Materials
- Art & Antiques
- Jewelry & Gemstones
- Tobacco & Alcohol
- Counterfeit Goods
Depending upon which type of goods you choose to steal, the difficulty of the mission will differ. Tobacco & Alcohol, for example, is easier to source than Narcotics. Once you've stolen the supplies you'll be able to stockpile them in your Hangar. With the addition of the San Andreas Mercenaries update, you can also speak to Rooster McCraw on the ground floor of your hangar, and pay him GTA$25,000 to source Air-Freight Cargo for you. He'll contact you once he's collected your stock.
You can choose to Sell your cargo by type or combined. There are bonuses available, however, if you sell certain types of cargo together. They are as follows:
Tobacco & Alcohol or Counterfeit Goods
- 5% for every five crates
Animal Materials, Art & Antiques, or Jewelry & Gemstones
- 12% for every 10 crates
Narcotics, Chemicals, or Medical Supplies
- 35% for every 25 crates
If you choose to Sell All Cargo then you will forfeit any of the abovementioned bonuses, which is worth keeping in mind. Once you've successfully delivered your Cargo, you will have to pay a premium to Ron for his involvement in the business. Be careful, because you may be attacked by other players in a Public Lobby, and so will want to know How to Play Solo and Avoid Griefers.
