Sano Jet Center, one of four FBOs at Florida’s Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, has rebranded as Fort Lauderdale Executive Jet Center. Lynda Zur, who opened the facility in 2003, has partnered with new co-owner Marshall Myles, most recently head of Skyservice, one of Canada’s leading business aviation service providers, to expand the business.
“I’m excited to build upon this foundation that Lynda’s built during the last 17 years,” said Myles, adding that Florida is one of the top states in the U.S. for business aviation. “We’ve just re-signed a 30-year lease, and we’re making a major investment in expansions.”
The first phase of those plans began last month with groundbreaking on a 20,000-sq-ft hangar, which when completed next year, will bring the location to 120,000 sq ft spread over six hangars, including a paint shop and maintenance facility.
A second project, slated to start next year, will see the construction of another hangar and more ramp space as part of the development of an additional 4.5 acres of leasehold, which will be done in 2021.
A renovation of the terminal lobby is underway and is expected to be completed in time for the upcoming Super Bowl, which will take place in nearby Miami in early February.
As part of the changes, the FBO also joined the Phillips 66 branded aviation network.
