Ross Aviation has given its network a big boost with the acquisition of Rectrix Aviation and its five FBOs. As customary with Ross, Rectrix's four Massachusetts locations—Boston-area Laurence G. Hanscom Field Airport, Worcester Regional Airport, Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport, and Cape Cod Barnstable Municipal Airport-Boardman/Polando Field—and a base at Florida’s Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport will retain their original name.

Rectrix also runs a Part 135 aircraft charter/management operation and MRO facilities at Westfield and Sarasota.

The acquisition brings the chain to 16 FBOs at 14 airports in the U.S. “Rectrix Aviation has done an excellent job of providing customers with luxury facilities and exceptional customer service,” noted Ross Aviation president and CEO Jeff Ross. “We are excited to expand the Ross Aviation footprint on the East Coast and believe the Rectrix locations will be very complementary to our existing portfolio.”
