Stellar Aviation acquires Illinois FBO


Stellar Aviation, an FBO operator with facilities in South Palm Beach, Florida, and Wilmington, Delaware, has taken over Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in Springfield, Illinois. Horizon Aviation was previously in charge of the FBO at Abraham Lincoln airport, but has now been added to Stellar’s portfolio.

Jonathan Miller, president of Stellar Aviation Group, said, “This new location is the strategic cornerstone for our growing FBO network as we look to expand further throughout the important Midwestern region. It is with great pleasure we welcome all of Horizon’s dedicated employees and discerning clientele to the Stellar family.”

Mark Hanna, director, Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport, added, “We are pleased to welcome Stellar Aviation to the Springfield community as they will bring a wealth of operational experience and innovation to our airport. We are excited to have them as a partner to further grow and develop our general and corporate aviation sectors, especially as we begin a major redevelopment project that will transform the FBO into a first rate facility. Together, we look forward to a bright and prosperous future for general and corporate aviation in Springfield, Illinois.”
