The Aeropremier facility at NEW is the latest acquisition for Hawthorne Global Aviation Services.

Hawthorne Global Aviation Services has acquired a second FBO in its bid to establish a network. The South Carolina-based company, which has an 80-year heritage in aviation, purchased a controlling interest in the Aeropremier facility at New Orleans Lakefront Airport and will rebrand it as a Hawthorne property. The location, which completed extensive renovations earlier this year, has more than 50,000 sq ft of hangar space and can accommodate aircraft up to the size of a G550. Earlier this year, Hawthorne acquired the Excelaire FBO at MacArthur Airport on Long Island, N.Y.
