Recently renamed FBO chain Revv Aviation has expanded to seven locations with the addition of the sole FBO at South Dakota’s Huron Regional Airport (KHON). The city had acquired the FBO assets at KHON from the previous operator Fly Jet Center and then asked Revv, which is growing its footprint throughout the Midwest, to manage the facility.
“What Revv is doing in the Midwest is unique in that the company wants to revitalize small-town airports and encourage people to visit and utilize their local air transportation centers,” noted airport manager Larry Cooper.
The Avfuel-branded facility includes a terminal with a passenger lobby, pilot lounge, and 10-seat A/V-equipped conference room. As well, its 11,000-sq-ft heated hangar can shelter jets up to a Falcon 900.
“Huron can handle any size aircraft,” said Revv president and CEO Guy Lieser. “It’s got a 7,200-foot by 110-foot wide runway, with a 5,000-foot crosswind runway." He added the company intends to bring its full suite of services to KHON including maintenance, avionics, a flight school, and charter. An engine service team specializing in the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 will care for more than 30 agricultural aircraft based on the field.
Revv also operates FBOs in Council Bluffs, Davenport, and Muscatine, Iowa; Aurora and Schaumburg, Illinois; and Janesville, Wisconsin. The Illinois-based company also provides flight training in Sioux City, Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska.
