A dream about being in a hangar suggests a period of preparation or transition in your life. There are many different takes on that idea though.

You may be gearing up for a significant change or endeavor. The hangar represents a safe space for you to gather your resources and plan your course of action. Seeing an aircraft in a hangar, by contrast, symbolizes potential and readiness for a journey or significant life change. The aircraft is a symbol of your ambitions and the hangar signifies that you have the necessary resources and preparation to achieve your goals. The common themes among these possible meanings indicate a phase of preparation and anticipation for a significant life event or change.

A hangar can be a somewhat colorful and puzzling dream image to make any kind of definitive analysis about. To say with any kind of confidence, I'd need to get a deeper understanding of the dreamer's life story and mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of being in a hangar may imply a latent desire for shelter or containment, a Freudian echo of the womb's safety.

This can be a multi-faceted dream symbol though — It may also suggest a need for introspection and self-analysis, a retreat from external stimuli. The hangar, in this context, is a symbol of the unconscious mind, a space for dormant thoughts and feelings. Seeing an aircraft in a hangar, however, could be interpreted as a manifestation of your superego, the moral component of the mind in Freudian theory. The aircraft, a symbol of aspiration and advancement, is contained within the hangar, or the unconscious. This could indicate a struggle between your moral judgments and unconscious desires, a classic Freudian conflict. Both of these dreams suggest a need for self-reflection and introspection.0
