Center, about 30 miles north of Palm Beach, Fla., operates from a 53-acre facility with more than 15 acres of ramp space and 250,000 sq ft of hangar space. The FBO offers a dedicated pilot’s lobby, snooze room, lounge with massage chair, wireless Internet access, auto valet and courtesy limo service.

The former FirstFlight FBO at Garden City Regional Airport in Kansas has rebranded as Saker Aviation Services and joined the Avfuel network. The new Saker FBO facility also provides an FAA-approved Part 145 maintenance facility, charter, aircraft rental and flight instruction services. Saker Aviation is named after the Saker Falcon, one of the largest birds in the Falcon family, according to president and CEO Ron Ricciardi. “We selected this name for the rebranding because we felt the imagery appropriately represented our business efforts,” he said. The company also rebranded its facilities in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Pa., and at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport in New York City as Saker Aviation Services bases.
