After more than two decades with Gulf Aviation as the lone FBO, Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas, received a second service provider when Sun Valley Aviation opened its doors at the end of June. The newly built facility has a 4,000-sq-ft terminal with two passenger seating areas, an eight-seat A/V-equipped conference room, a business center, pilots’ lounge, quiet room, shower, crew cars, complimentary Wi-Fi, onsite car rental and a canteen area. The building’s second floor has 4,000 sq ft of office space available. The FBO has a 12,000-sq-ft hangar that can accommodate midsize business jets up to the size of a Hawker 800, according to company president Patrick Kornegay. The facility is open from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. The company offers aircraft management and is currently working on its Part 135 charter certificate. Its fuel farm holds 20,000 gallons of jet-A, dispensed by a 5,000-gallon tanker, and the 12,000 gallons of avgas is available in full serve or self serve. The FBO also has a flight school and offers aircraft maintenance by four technicians on staff.
