Aircraft Specialists (ASI) has opened an upgraded FBO at Clark Regional Airport in Indiana. The company relocated from its three-decade-old, 1,800-sq-ft terminal which is now occupied by a flight school. ASI's new $2.2 million facility features a 4,400-sq-ft terminal with a glass-sheathed, double-height lobby to allow ample natural light. Other amenities include a full kitchen, complimentary snacks and beverages, concierge service, a 10-seat conference room, pilots' lounge with shower facilities, and crew cars.
The construction project also incorporated an adjoining 18,200-sq-ft hangar that can accommodate aircraft up to a Gulfstream G550. That brings the CAA-preferred FBO to 110,000 sq ft of hangar space at the airport. A full-service facility, open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, the Avfuel-branded location specializes in quick turnarounds and offers a Part 145 repair station, ramp-side vehicle access, and on-site car rental. The location will be adding a self-serve 100LL pump next month.
With its 7,000-foot runway, the airport—just 10 minutes north of Louisville, Kentucky—expects to welcome traffic for the Kentucky Derby, which was rescheduled to September due to Covid-19 concerns.
