Signature Flight Support has moved its FBO at Louisiana’s Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport/Ryan Field next door to a newly-renovated terminal and hangar complex that previously housed a corporate flight department. As part of its purchase of Landmark Aviation in 2016, Signature inherited a 1960s-era facility at the airport, and it purchased the adjacent, larger location last year.
After two months of renovations, the new FBO consists of a 15,000-sq-ft hangar (50 percent larger than the previous hangar) that can accommodate aircraft up to a Gulfstream G650, as well as a 5,000-sq-ft adjoining terminal with a 12-seat conference room, pilot lounge with showers, and offices.
“Signature Flight Support is committed to the growth of private aviation at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport and the greater Baton Rouge area,” said Geoff Heck, the service provider’s senior v-p for eastern U.S. operations. “We are proud to service residents and visitors to the city, and our new facility allows us to grow our on-field presence in greatly renewed surroundings.”
Mike Edwards, the airport’s director of aviation, added, “The expansion of private aviation capabilities at Baton Rouge by Signature Flight Support is a testament to the strength and importance of this group of airport users.”
