Pentastar is to provide jet charter, management, and aircraft maintenance support services at the FBO Avflight is building at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The new FBO, which is expected to be opened during spring next year, will feature a 5,000 square foot FBO building with 30,000 square foot hangar capacity and host an office for Pentastar. The FBO will provide a range of support services for both general aviation and airlines including fuel sales, hangar storage, aircraft ground handling services, de-icing, and concierge services.
Avflight, which is part of the Avfuel-branded network of more than 650 FBOs around the world, operates 22 FBOs across North America and Europe, six of which are in Michigan.
Pentastar Aviation provides aircraft management, advisory services, aircraft maintenance, avionics services, interior services and executive terminal services.
Joe Meszaros, Avflight’s vice president of operations said, “While our facility includes all the amenities of a high-end FBO, we want to have comprehensive services for business aircraft customers. Pentastar, also a Michigan based company, has a long history of customer service excellence and their expertise in charter, management and maintenance make them the perfect partner.”
Brad Bruce, Pentastar Aviation’s executive vice president of maintenance and sales said, “This partnership will allow us to expose Avflight customers to the full spectrum of services we provide, and having an office at the Avflight facility in Grand Rapids will make it easy for them to take advantage of our combined offerings.”
