TWG Aviation, which provides charter/management, maintenance and FBO services under the names Business Jet Access and Business Jet Center, has completed the purchase of a variety of assets from Vitesse Aviation. TWG acquired 7.5 acres with two hangars at Dallas Love Field, where Vitesse had operated an FBO and provided aircraft maintenance, charter and management services. TWG will now begin to incorporate these services into its Business Jet Access and Jet Center operations at Love Field. TWG and Vitesse announced in June that they were completing their due diligence of the purchase.

Vitesse, meanwhile, is retaining its FAA Part 145 repair station certificate and is moving its landing gear, component and machining business to a facility near Love Field, where it will continue to supply general aviation and commercial airline parts.
In other TWG news, Business Jet Access has received IS-BAO certification from the International Business Aviation Council. The certification means that the company has met best-practices standards that have been verified by an accredited IS-BAO auditor.

Business Jet Access has also been issued a Platinum safety rating from Argus International and obtained an FAA Part 145 repair station certificate. In addition, it has been designated as an authorized charter carrier for flights to and from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
