Montana FBO Changes Ownership, Name

Front Range Jet Center, one of two FBOs at Montana’s Great Falls International Airport (KGTF), has been sold to aircraft management and brokerage provider Eagle Jet Solutions and subsequently rebranded as Great Falls Jet Center.

Before the transaction, Eagle Jet had begun construction on a 40,000-sq-ft hangar on the field that, when completed this spring, will be able to shelter aircraft up to a Boeing BBJ. Equipped with a 150-foot-wide, 45-foot-high door, full foam fire-suppression system, and heated floors that extend out on to the ramp to keep snow and ice from the entrance, the hangar will be the largest in the state.

“We chose to develop in this community for a reason,” noted Eagle Jet president Carson Coryell. “Great Falls is an ideal central hub for anyone looking for a hangar home in the region.” The Avfuel-branded FBO—which includes a 10,000-sq-ft hangar which will be used for maintenance once the new structure is completed and adjoining 3,000-sq-ft terminal—specializes in quick turns and offers U.S. Customs, deicing, crew cars, and a comfortable lounge.

“We’re thrilled to expand our offerings as Great Falls Jet Center,” Coryell said. “By unifying a complete suite of aviation services on the KGTF field under one strong brand, we’ll be able to better serve Great Falls traffic with the service and care they deserve.”
