Rectrix Aerodrome Centers is attempting something that has bedeviled many an FBO over the years, trying to force an airport’s municipal owners to allow FBOs to pump jet fuel. Rectrix built a new FBO at Barnstable Municipal Airport-Boardman/Polando Field in Hyannis, Mass., in 2005 and has been fighting with the town of Hyannis and the airport commission that runs the airport ever since.
Barnstable Municipal Airport
Barnstable Municipal Airport in Hyannis, Mass., is the facility of choice for business aviation on Cape Cod, but operators have not been blessed with the most luxurious of terminal options.
Rectrix Aerodrome Centers is building a new FBO facility with hangars at Florida’s Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport. “We’re hoping to open in late fall,” said Kevin Bradley, general manager of the company’s Hyannis, Mass. FBO. Rectrix’s Hyannis facility opened last September, bringing a new level of service to Barnstable Municipal Airport-Boardman/Polando Field.
