Each Thursday, Rockstar releases the GTA Online weekly update—refreshing the multiplayer sandbox with new weekly discounts and bonuses. It's a great way to pick up some of the fastest cars in GTA Online, or to snag a new businesses without committing to days of grinding for cash. And even if you already own the business featured in a given week, its refurbishment options are usually on sale, too. Maybe you'll finally be able to pimp out that bunker.

This week, players can get 60% off Hangars, gaining access to the Air Freight business. This... is not a particularly great earner, especially if you're playing solo. There are some fun missions, though, and with the double payout on Air Freight sales, it'll be a nice change of pace from the Cayo Perico grind.

Arguably the bigger benefit of a hangar is the ability to store planes and helicopters that can be spawned through the Interactions menu, rather than having to call Pegasus. The spawn locations are slightly more generous than through Pegasus, too, meaning your aircraft should appear at least slightly closer to your location. If you pick one of the Fort Zancudo hangars—recommended—you also gain access to the military base.

Discounts this week are predominantly for helicopters and aircraft, continuing the aerial theme. Of particular note is the Akula, a stealth attack helicopter that lets you go off radar—hiding you from the minimap, alongside any business supplies or heist equipment that you're carrying.
