Michigan-based aviation services provider Avflight has taken over the lease of the former Flower Aviation and fueling operation of America Jet, previously the two FBOs at Salina Regional Airport in Kansas. It will operate the two facilities as Avfuel-branded Avflight North and South. The addition marks Avflight’s ninth owned and operated location. The Salina Airport Authority board of directors approved a new 20-year lease for the former Flower Aviation property, with two 10-year renewal options for it and the other properties in the agreement.
When its new FBO facility opens in early April, the Henriksen Jet Center at Houston Executive Airport will feature the world’s largest aircraft arrivals canopy. The 32,800-sq-ft structure is large enough to provide shelter for a pair of Boeing Business Jets parked side-by-side. The FBO has operated from temporary trailers since its inception in 2006. The new 22,500-sq-ft terminal at the privately owned business aviation airport will offer 24-hour aircraft fueling, ground handling operations, rental and crew cars, crew lounge, catering services and complimentary wireless Internet access.
