Landmark Expands at Westchester County Airport

 - November 7, 2013, 3:06 PM

Landmark Aviation announced yesterday that it has doubled down on its property holdings at Westchester County Airport in White Plains, N.Y., with the acquisition of independent FBO Panorama Flight Support. With its latest addition, Landmark acquired a 20,000-sq-ft hangar, for a total of approximately 96,000 sq ft of heated community hangar space on nearly 26 acres of property.

The move also gives Landmark property on both sides of the airport and an MRO presence at the airport as well, through the acquisition of Panorama’s maintenance department. The company is still determining the level of repair service it will offer.

In August, Signature Flight Support announced it would be purchasing the Jet Systems FBO, another independent operator at the airport, which would double its property there. However, that transaction has yet to be presented to the Westchester County Board of Legislators for approval. If it is accepted, the number of FBO operators at the New York City-area airport would decrease to three from five at the beginning of the year, with Million Air the other remaining operator.
