TXI sold to Vitesse

 - September 15, 2006, 11:03 AM

Vitesse, an Indianapolis flight services firm, purchased the TXI Aviation FBO, charter and maintenance company at Dallas Love Field. The move expands Vitesse’s maintenance capabilities to support its “strategic jet partnership” programs and marks the company’s entry into the FBO business. With the acquisition, Vitesse also created a new operating unit called Vitesse Aviation Services, joining the other operating unit, Vitesse FlightPartners, which markets and manages the jet partner-ship program. TXI Aviation will be rebranded under the Vitesse Aviation Services name. Vitesse retained the TXI personnel after the purchase.
