Modern Aviation has executed a definitive agreement to acquire Superior Aviation Company’s (“SACjet”) three Sacramento, CA FBO operations from Sacramento International Jet Center Incorporated (operating as Capitol Jet Center) at Sacramento International Airport, Mather Jet Center at Mather Airport, and Patterson Aviation Company (operating as Executive Jet Center) at Sacramento Executive Airport.
Modern Aviation’s CEO, Mark Carmen, said, “We founded Modern Aviation to develop a national network of FBOs. The opportunity to acquire SACjet’s three Sacramento FBOs and build upon their well-deserved reputation for client service is another important milestone in executing our strategy. SACjet has a world class staff of professionals at these airports where customers receive world class service every day. Modern intends to hire all of SACjet’s current operational employees. One of the benefits of our consolidation strategy is that it creates more career growth opportunities for our team members and more touchpoints for our customers.
“As the capital of California, Sacramento is a highly attractive, growing general aviation market, and these FBOs provide world class service to a wide range of customers, including general aviation, business aviation, sports team and other VIP charters, military, cargo and commercial airlines. We look forward to continuing to provide industry best practices in customer service and safety to benefit all stakeholders of the Sacramento FBOs. Similar to our other locations, we look forward to developing a strong relationship with the Sacramento County Airport System.”
Since their first acquisition in early 2018, Modern has grown to nine locations today, which includes two locations in NY pending airport approval. The three Sacramento FBOs will bring Modern to twelve locations.
“Over the last 25 years, SACjet has continually invested in our people, our community and our facilities here in Sacramento. We assembled a seasoned and dedicated team who have maintained a track record of delivering exceptional customer service.” said SACjet founder and CEO, Scott Powell. “Modern Aviation is well positioned to build on our success and further develop the leaseholds to reach their full potential. I’m confident that Modern will provide a great home for the team and our loyal customer base.”
Modern expects the acquisition to close in the spring or early in the summer of 2022 following the review and approval of appropriate government agencies.
