Since Canadian aviation service provider Skyservice expanded into the U.S. last year, the company has been busy attending to its newly-branded Oregon locations. It just completed construction on a new-build FBO complex at Redmond Municipal Airport-Roberts Field (KRDM), with a grand opening scheduled for this Friday.
The facility includes a 7,000-sq-ft FBO terminal with passenger and pilot lounges, refreshment bar, snooze room, flight-planning area, 16-seat conference room, concierge, hotel shuttle, and on-site car rental. The adjoining 25,000-sq-ft hangar can accommodate aircraft up to a Bombardier Global 7500 and brings the location to 85,000 sq ft of aircraft shelter.
At Bend Municipal Airport, where Skyservice is also the lone service provider, it recently added a 16,000-sq-ft hangar for based aircraft. It complements the location's existing 12,000 sq ft of hangar space, including a 10,000-sq-ft MRO complex.
“Skyservice is committed to delivering world-class business aviation services across all of our business service lines, addressing the growing demand for private aviation travel in North America,” said company president and CEO Benjamin Murray. “We are excited to open our newest fixed-base operations and hangar facilities in Oregon, a popular place for recreation and tourism, and to improve the client experience through excellent service, safety, and amenities.”
