Epic and UVair have been selected to provide fuel and FBO network branding to The Aerospace Centre, a new state-of-the-art business aircraft FBO at Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada. Construction is underway on the new facility and it is expected to open in stages beginning in 2016, with full-operation expected in early 2017.
The Aerospace Centre will be operated by Aligned Aviation Airport Development Services and will carry the Epic and UVair FBO network brands.
“We felt confident in choosing Epic because of its outstanding reputation in the industry, especially in terms of its safety record, excellent customer service and its long-standing history of providing innovative programs to help FBOs succeed,” said an Aligned Aviation spokesperson.
“In addition, we identified that joining the UVair FBO network would help build and grow our business traffic quickly by providing our future customers with a sense that they could ‘land with confidence’ in knowing our facilities and operations would be top-notch.”
The facility will consist of approximately 250,000ft² of hangar and office and shop facilities. Tenants include both management companies and independent corporate flight departments. The FBO incorporates a complete range of facilities including meeting, office, recreational, rest and working space. In addition, it will include an upper-level food and beverage space and event area, with a deck with viewing access of the nearby runways. Subsequent phases of [development of]The Aerospace Centre will include an atrium with related commercial office towers and convention spaces will be announced in the near future.
“We’re pleased to have been selected and we’re looking forward to being a part of this exceptional facility,” said Steve McCullough, Epic’s senior vice president of general aviation, adding, “Toronto is an important international destination and The Aerospace Centre will be a great addition to Epic’s growing network of global FBOs.”
