Savoy, Ill.-based Flightstar has purchased the assets of Bloomington Avionics. Under the terms of the agreement the staff at Bloomington Avionics, as well as its assets and services, will transfer to Flightstar’s FBO facility at Champaign-Urbana’s University of Illinois-Willard Airport. Bloomington Avionics operated for more than 30 years at Central Illinois Regional Airport in Bloomington, Ill., as an FAA Class I and II avionics repair station serving owners of high-performance single- and twin-engine aircraft.
Central Illinois Regional Airport
Bloomington-Normal Central Illinois Regional Airport is home to Platinum Jet Center BMI’s new FBO, which opened in October. The FBO’s 20,000-sq-ft heated hangar “is the largest hangar in the Midwest,” said vice president and general manager David Schlentner, and is tall enough to accept a BBJ. The FBO is owned by Executive Flight Management and features a pilot lounge, business center, customer offices, a training room and Chevron fuel.
