Known primarily for its pilot-centric product sales business, AviatMall has opened its first FBO at Wilmington International Airport in North Carolina, where it will be one of two service providers on the field. The company was awarded a five-year lease through an RFP process to occupy the 13-acre former Aero Services facility, which includes a 3,000-sq-ft terminal and 21,000 sq ft of hangar space that can accommodate aircraft up to a Challenger 605.

The Avfuel-branded dealer also operates a flight school and an aviation store, and it expects to receive FAA Part 145 certification for its repair station. According to company president Andy Mansoor, it is working with U.S. Customs & Border Protection to establish on-site service.
