The addition of the former Jet Source FBO at California's McClellan-Palomar Airport increases the existing Atlantic Aviation leasehold there to 22 acres along with the addition of nearly 100,000 sq ft of hangar space.

Atlantic Aviation has consolidated its position at California’s McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, with the acquisition of the neighboring Jet Source FBO. Atlantic arrived at the airport early in 2016 with the purchase of the former Premier Jet FBO, which included its 15-acre leasehold.

The purchase of the adjacent Jet Source location adds another seven acres, along with 93,000 sq ft of hangars and 23,000 sq ft of terminal and offices, bringing the facility to a total of 308,000 sq ft of buildings on the airport. “We are pleased to offer more options for hangar storage and ramp space to Atlantic’s customers in the Southern California area,” noted Steve Hirschfeld, the company’s regional vice president of operations.

The move reduces the number of FBOs at the airport to three.
