Fort Worth, Texas-based FBO American Aero announced a charity partnership initiative here at the NBAA show that will allow its fuel customers who are eligible for discounts to opt to assign to the Navy Seal Foundation 10 cents (of each gallon price) of their allotted discount rate. The donation is made through American Aero, but in the customer’s name. The program, dubbed “Red, White and Blue,” is in place at American Aero’s Meacham International Airport location. It began at the opening of the NBAA show and continues indefinitely.
The Navy Seal Foundation was formed in 2000 and provides immediate and ongoing support to all U.S. Navy Seals, special warfare combatant-craft crewmen and Naval Special Warfare support personnel along with their spouses and families. The foundation provides services to both active-duty personnel and veterans in three key areas: family services and command support, educational programs and legacy activities.
“American Aero is proud to support the important work of the Navy Seal Foundation and we are delighted to offer our customers an opportunity to do so as well,” said company vice president of operations Bob Agostino.
Earlier this year, American Aero (Booth N3505) joined the Signature Select affiliate program, as an extension of the Signature Flight Support network, offering the benefits of its Signature Status and TailWinds customer loyalty programs. Currently operating out of an interim facility at the Fort Worth airport, the first phase of construction on its FBO complex includes a 31,200-sq-ft hangar, in addition to the recently renovated historic Hangar 11N, and is expected to be completed in May.–C.E.
