U.S.-based AvFuel is once again exhibiting at EBACE, promoting its worldwide network of fuel and service suppliers. The company supports operators via a network of more than 600 affiliated FBOs, several of which are exhibiting under the AvFuel banner here at Booth No. 227.

One of those FBOs, Fargo Jet Center, which claims to be the largest business aviation service organization in the upper Midwest region of the U.S., provides on-site U.S. Customs facilities at its full-service FBO. It also offers aircraft management and a fractional ownership program.

At the other end of the geographic spectrum, another AvFuel affiliate, Banyan Air Service at Fort Lauderdale (Florida) Executive Airport, also offers U.S. Customs services along with aircraft management, sales and heavy maintenance capabilities. Its maintenance shop provides turbine engine repair and avionics services.

A third AvFuel affiliate, Duncan Aviation, operates service centers in Lincoln, Nebraska, and Battle Creek, Michigan, where it conducts airframe inspections and maintenance, engine services, cabin and cockpit retrofits and painting. Duncan offers aircraft brokerage services, and also operates 20 satellite avionics facilities throughout the U.S.
