GFK Flight Support broke ground on new FBO facilities at Grand Forks Airport in North Dakota last month. The $4.5 million terminal includes a two-story building with sky-lit walls, hotel-class lobby and additional hangar space, bringing the total to 130,000 sq ft. The building includes four classrooms, pilot pro shop, weather room, 25-person conference room, in-house theater and indoor parking spaces for aircraft owners’ vehicles. GFK is also launching an innovative wing-tip invoicing system with Chevron/Texaco so pilots can pay for fuel at the airplane via a wireless invoicing system. “We feel it will be a nice feature to complement the new FBO,” said GFK president Brent Seifert.
