With business aviation traffic continuing to climb at Texas’s Perot Field Fort Worth Alliance Airport (KAFW), Alliance Aviation Services will debut its new FBO there next month. The 20,000-sq-ft terminal replaces the former building, which will be remodeled and retained for tenant offices. It includes a vehicle porte-cochere, covered walkway from ramp to terminal, passenger lounge and café bar, interactive video wall in the lobby atrium, nursing room, and pilot lounge, along with conference rooms and tenant offices. Outdoor seating with ramp views has been integrated with the landscaping.
The project also included 68,000 sq ft of adjoining hangar space, giving the complex more than 200,000 sq ft of aircraft shelter that can handle the latest ultra-long-range business jets. KAPF originated from a public-private collaboration between Hillwood, the City of Fort Worth, and the FAA and is now one of the largest cargo airports in the U.S., as well as the anchor of a 27,000-acre industrial zone.
“The new FBO…uniquely positions us for the growing demand for an elite, private flying experience,” explained Alliance Aviation Companies president Christian Childs. “Pilots and passengers will soon have access to expanded amenities and the highest level of customer service they’ve become accustomed to over the years.”
