Tennessee-based aviation services provider Crystal Air was selected from among several candidates to run the lone FBO at Apalachicola Regional Airport in Florida. The company received a five-year lease at the airport and expects to complete renovation of the 5,000-sq-ft terminal by the end of this month. The Phillips 66-branded FBO offers free Wi-Fi, a flight-planning room and courtesy car, and on-site car rental. It has 30,000 sq ft of hangar space and can accommodate aircraft up to the size of a GIV. The company will offer line maintenance, which had been absent from the facility for years, according to Taylor Newman, Crystal Air’s director of operations. The company also operates FBO facilities at Tennessee’s Cleveland Municipal Airport (which will migrate to the soon-to-open Cleveland Regional Jetport), Upper Cumberland Regional Airport and Franklin County Airport, as well as Dalton Municipal Airport in Dalton, Ga.
