FBO operator Avflight has opened its facility at Arizona’s Falcon Field Airport, which is situated midway between Scottsdale and Phoenix. The Avfuel-affiliated chain recently purchased the ground-handling operation of Falcon Executive Aviation, the lone full-service FBO at the Mesa gateway, and built a terminal on the northern side of the field across from the existing 2,000-sq-ft facility, which will be retained and operated as a satellite location.

The 5,000-sq-ft modern terminal includes a passenger lounge, concierge station, pilot lounge with snooze rooms and shower facilities, kitchen, flight-planning room, and eight-seat conference room, as well as more than 500 sq ft of tenant office space. Amenities include a crew car and car rentals. Avflight also built an 11,000-sq-ft hangar, bringing aircraft storage space to 38,000 sq ft and allowing for the sheltering of jets as large as a Gulfstream G650. As an Avfuel-branded facility, the FBO offers Avtrip points and Avfuel contract fuel.

“The Avflight team is honored to serve as a gateway to Mesa and the greater Phoenix area,” said Garrett Hain, the company’s v-p of finance. “Our goal was, and continues to be, to build in the foundation of Falcon Field Airport’s offerings with new facilities and a dedication to customer care.”
