A historic building in San Francisco's Presidio that was once used  as an airplane hangar will soon "give flight to the flightless" as an indoor  trampoline park.

      The House of Air is scheduled to open in August at 925 Mason St.,  near the Planet Granite rock climbing gym, and will be open to people of all  ages with all levels of physical ability, according to the Presidio Trust.
     
It will have two trampoline decks with trampoline walls, a  children's bounce house, special event rooms and a snack and retail area.
     
In addition to aerial and physical training, the facility will  offer dodge ball, fitness classes and open jump time.
     
The hangar was built in 1926, and at one time housed DE Havilland  DH-49 biplanes as part of the U.S. Army's 91st Observation Squadron.
     
It has since been used as a motor vehicle paint shop and office  and storage space for the Army.
