A trampoline field the size of a baseball diamond will soon be housed in a gutted airport hangar at Crissy Field.
The indoor facility — set to open in August — will consist of 50 conjoined trampolines used for aerial and physical training on trampolines, as well as trampoline dodgeball, fitness classes, and open jump time.
It took seven years for the idea for House of Air to become a reality. “We’ve been thinking about it for almost forever,’’ said co-owner David Schaeffer. “It was on a trip back from Lake Tahoe. We though, ‘We don’t really like our jobs and we want to do something that we love.’’’
The main Trampoline Experience Area will be divided into four major structures — from the conjoined trampolines to the training ground with harness lines for maneuvers such as Shauna White’s Double McTwists; two flips and three and a half spins.
The hangar, which was built in 1921, sits between Planet Granite climbing gym and La Petite Baleen Swim School. According to the Presidio Trust, it was Crissy Air Field’s land-plane hangar that helped launch De Havilland DH-48 biplanes for the Army’s 91st Observation Squadron.
Then it turned into a motor paint shop, said trust spokeswoman Dana Polk.
Schaeffer and co-owner Paul McGeehan have been sprucing up the hangar — removing cinder blocks and auto-repair scraps — for its August debut.
They’re painting pictures of a walk-in style, indoor trampoline park with hourly and monthly rates from training to free-for-alls and major events monitored by trained, “air traffic controllers.’’
