Signature Flight Support, which operates more than 100 FBOs worldwide, has announced that it will assist corporate flight departments and charter operators in gaining access to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Washington, D.C. At Signature's booth (No. 3257) here at the show, aircraft operators will be able to complete the DCA Access Standard Security Program (DASSP) application with the help of Signature representatives, who will provide information about implementing DASSP.

Also here at the show, Signature is launching its iFBO iPhone app, which provides customers with access to flight-planning and service information. The app allows users to calculate fuel and handling costs for a particular location, aircraft make and model and fuel uplift, for both avgas and jet-A. There's also a locations database that details FBO amenities and services and a function that lets users add any location to a favorites list for easy access.

In other Signature news, the company has appointed Tad Dixon as tenant and hangar sales manager. Dixon will be based at Signature's Orlando, Fla., headquarters and will be responsible for supporting tenant office and hangar sales agreements for the Signature FBO network.
