Cutter Aviation held a grand opening reception on August 13 for its new FBO terminal at Colorado Springs Municipal Airport in the US mountain state.
Cutter Aviation leased an additional eight acres of land on the west side of the airport, which is now home to the new mountain retreat-themed terminal and a 62,000-gallon (281,857-liter) fuel farm. There is also a 23,000ft² (2,136m²) hangar.
Will Cutter, president of Cutter Aviation, said, “Our new world-class facility at Colorado Springs Municipal Airport is a great enhancement to Cutter Aviation’s Southwestern US FBO network and we are thankful for the opportunity to celebrate our grand opening with customers, colleagues and friends. We look forward to welcoming customers from around the world, and providing them with premium business aviation services.”
Festivities at the opening event included a log cutting ceremony; a static aircraft display showcasing a Gulfstream 280; tours of the new FBO terminal; refreshments; and speeches from Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, director of aviation Greg Phillips, Cutter Colorado Springs general manager Calvin Martin, and Will Cutter.
Since 2006, Cutter has more than doubled its footprint at the airport, including over 9,000ft² (836m²) of FBO and office space with VIP lounge areas, a flight planning center, an executive conference room, on-site car rental, as well as 132,000ft² (12,263m²) of aircraft storage space on 17 acres of leasehold.
