Oklahoma, which is vying for a U.S. leadership role in unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) research, development and testing, would see 600 new jobs created in the first three years after UAS gain freer access to the national airspace system, which is expected in 2015, according to a forthcoming study.
Regional Jet Center, located at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA) in Bentonville, Ark., and AAR Aircraft Services at Will Rogers World Airport (OKC) in Oklahoma City, have signed renewal contracts with fuel provider Phillips 66 that will keep them as branded FBOs for another five years. Regional Jet Center is open 24/7 and specializes in quick turns.
The Trajen FBO network added its 15th location last month with the purchase of the Million Air facility at Wiley Post Airport, Oklahoma City. In the coming months, Trajen said upgrades will include new ground service equipment, gourmet coffee from Peet’s, Trajen Connect Internet services and other changes to “integrate the new location into its branded network.”
