Avflight opens FBO at Grand Rapids, Michigan


Avflight has opened a FBO and hangar at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Construction of the facility started on September 25, and  has continued throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to meet its projected Spring 2020 completion. The FBO is the second at the airport.

Built on a five-acre leased parcel at the airport, the facility includes a 5,000 square foot FBO building, plus a 30,000 square foot hangar. Located on the airport’s east side, it offers good access to the terminal and taxiways / runways, as well as the local highway system.

The facility was constructed in the contemporary Avflight style, with the needs of the traveler in mind, including a comfortable pilot lounge and passenger lounge.

The hangar accommodates aircraft up to a G650 with a 28ft door and features 400-amp electric service. As a full-service FBO, the Avflight team provides full fueling services, expert ground handling, aircraft detailing and washing, de-icing service, catering, 24/7 personal concierge services, complimentary car washing, and Avflight Network fuel pricing discounts.

Other services provided to the airport community include indoor car parking, secured access and 1,650 square feet of office space. The FBO will create around 30 new jobs at the Airport.

“We are thrilled to bring Avflight’s expertise and passion for aviation to GRR as a gateway to West Michigan,” said Garrett Hain, Avflight’s vice president of finance. “The region is full of vibrant communities and is an epicenter for business, education, art, dining, entertainment and tourism in Michigan. Our investment reflects our long-term commitment to the airport and the services it provides.”
The facility is the 22nd Avflight location worldwide.
