An Atlanta businessman has opened JetServ PDK, a new FBO at FBO-rich Atlanta’s DeKalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK). The new FBO pumps only jet fuel (Phillips 66) and serves only transient turbine aircraft. JetServ occupies three acres of tarmac and renovated facilities that once belonged to Air BP, including a 5,000-sq-ft terminal building. It also offers a 10,000-sq-ft hangar for use by those transient aircraft. The FBO plans to develop an adjacent two acres for additional aircraft parking and hangar space.

Within the terminal are a passenger lounge, conference room, crew lounge and separate sleep room, flight-planning room with satellite weather data, catering and on-site crew and rental cars. Later this month, JetServ will become a 24-hr operation.
In addition to JetServ, PDK’s other FBOs include Mercury Air Center, Epps Air Service and Signature Flight Support. The company forecasts it will capture 50 percent of the airport’s 7.2-million-gallon transient fuel business “within three years."
