American Aero FTW has become the sole FBO operator at Meacham International Airport, Fort Worth, Texas. A new 85,000ft² administration building has been built to mark the occasion, from which American Aero FTW will oversee the refueling, ground handling, servicing and hangar needs of business and private aviation customers.
Inside the facility are modern passenger lounges and fully equipped conference rooms, as well as pilot and crew lounges, with large-screen smart TVs, fully reclining seating, work stations, a soundproof sleep room, shower, kitchen and a flight-planning room. There is a dedicated air concierge team, and iPads loaded with movies and TV shows for visitors. Other technology includes intelligent, electrochromic windows that automatically tint to reduce heat and glare while maximizing natural light, and also a wireless fuel meter system for instantaneous and precise on-ramp transactions.
In addition to the FBO building, American Aero FTW has built three new state-of-the-art hangars, more than doubling its hangar space. It also offers 11 acres of open ramp, monitored 24/7, and US Customs services on-site and on the ramp. The company, based at the airport for a number of years, is also IS-BAH accredited.
Robert M Bass, owner of American Aero FTW, said, “The city’s commitment to rebuild the terminal and invest in upgrading the airport created the opportunity to work as a partner and make Meacham International Airport a major gateway. We’ve created a five-star experience for our tenants, the arriving and departing pilots, and their passengers.”
