Airport Management Solutions (AMS), which has managed FBO operations at Tupelo Regional Airport in the USA, now wholly owns Tupelo Aviation Unlimited. The purchase from the Tupelo Airport Authority in Mississippi was finalized earlier this month.
Speaking about the purchase, Cliff Nash, executive director of Tupelo Regional Airport, commented, “I am excited about our new relationship with AMS and Tupelo Aviation Unlimited, and look forward to working and growing with them in the coming years.”
Erick Larson, AMS director of business development, added, “On October 1, AMS made a major commitment to its based tenants, the airport and the Tupelo Mississippi area. We look forward to continuing to provide the aviation community with exceptional service at reasonable prices.”
The Avfuel-branded FBO provides its customers with premixed Jet-A and Avgas through both full-service fueling operations and self-serve units. Corporate flight departments also benefit from the availability of office and hangar space including 77,000ft2 (7,153m2) of hangar space. Tupelo Aviation holds the airport’s military fueling contract and provides ground-handling services for major Southeastern Conference college sporting events.
Services provided by AMS include line maintenance and overnight services for commercial airlines, general aviation maintenance with emphasis on light turbine and turboprop aircraft, ground service equipment maintenance, and refurbishment.
