Carver Aero FBO Group Expands into Wisconsin

The former Janesville Jet Center, the sole aviation service provider at Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport, is now the newest member of the growing Carver Aero FBO chain.

Iowa-based FBO chain Carver Aero has increased to four locations with the acquisition of the Janesville Jet Center, the lone service provider at Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport, which features a 7,300-foot main runway.

The FBO, which is open every day from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. with after-hours callout available, offers an 2,725-sq-ft terminal with an eight-seat conference room, pilot lounge, flight planning room, and crew car. It is attached to a 7,700-sq-ft hangar that can shelter aircraft as large as a King Air or a Citation. The facility is within walking distance of a golf course and restaurant.

Carver, which was sold last year to investment firm CL Enterprises but retained its name, added its third FBO earlier this year. This latest purchase marks its first foray out of the Hawkeye State.

“The Janesville FBO fits into our business strategy to expand into smaller communities throughout the Midwest,” said Peter Limberger, Carver’s chairman as well as co-founder and chairman of CL Enterprises. “This airfield can accommodate higher volumes and larger planes. That means greater opportunity.”
