DB Aviation, a Chicago-area FBO and charter operator based at Waukegan Regional Airport, has renamed its FBO DB Flight Center. The FBO added a 43,000-sq-ft hangar last year and recently added 11 jets to its charter/management fleet in various locations throughout the U.S. Waukegan Airport’s location outside the Chicago Class B airspace makes flying out of the airport much simpler. Onsite U.S. Customs is also available at Waukegan Airport.

Higher altitude procedures are now in place to reduce low-altitude flying over Lake Michigan by aircraft operating to and from several satellite airports near Chicago. The Chicago Area Business Aviation Association has been working with the FAA to eliminate ATC’s routine routing of many flights over the lake at 4,000 feet.
