MESA, Ariz. / December 16, 2020 / AVIATION NEWS – Avflight Corporation is proud to announce the addition of its 23rd FBO—Avflight Mesa—by acquiring facilities from Falcon Executive Aviation at Falcon Field Airport in Mesa, Ariz.

“The addition of Avflight Mesa provides a strong presence for the Avflight Network in a thriving southwestern U.S. market,” said Garrett Hain, Avflight’s vice president of finance. “This strategic acquisition will connect Avflight’s loyal customer base to major businesses, entertainment and tourism in the greater Phoenix region. We are proud to bring Avflight’s expertise and passion for aviation to FFZ to serve as a premier gateway to this vibrant community.”  

As a full-service FBO, Avflight Mesa offers 24-hour fueling services (including jet fuel and avgas), oxygen service, aircraft parking, courtesy transportation, rental cars, computerized weather and professional concierge services. The FBO will be an Avfuel-branded location, offering competitive pricing and transaction ease with Avfuel Contract Fuel and lucrative rewards with AVTRIP.

While Falcon Executive Aviation will retain its maintenance, charter and flight school businesses at KFFZ, Avflight will establish its new FBO business out of the acquired facilities, including a building with 15,000 square feet of hangar and office space, an additional facility with 2,000 square feet of office space, an additional 12,000 square foot hangar built in 2018, and brand new fuel storage tanks installed in October 2020.

With an eye toward expansion, Avflight ultimately plans to move its operation to a new FBO facility across the field in May 2021. The development, already under construction, includes a 5,000 square foot office and 11,000 square foot hangar with the potential for a total of 60,000 square feet of hangar space to accommodate a growing customer base at the Mesa airport.

The new state-of-the-art FBO facility will have a comfortable, modern aesthetic typical of the Avflight brand and include all the luxuries that discerning travelers have come to expect: pilot and passenger lounges, snooze rooms, showers, a kitchen, flight planning room and conference room. For added convenience, the new FBO facility will allow for direct access from road to ramp with ample parking space.  

Conveniently located within the Phoenix Metropolitan Area, Avflight Mesa is approximately 30 minutes to Scottsdale and Phoenix, and approximately 20 minutes to Tempe and downtown Mesa. The FBO also provides the closest fly-in option for the Chicago Cubs’ training facility—Sloan Park—and area attractions and major corporations. 

Avflight Corporation operates at strategically-located airports in North America and Europe, specializing in corporate, commercial, and military traffic and services. All Avflight locations are part of the Avfuel Network, offering a full array of Avfuel fueling products and services, such as Avfuel Contract Fuel and AVTRIP rewards.
