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.
“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.”
