Airport area office and hangar layout appoint private FBO – Greeley Tribune
LOVELAND – Business Aviation Group LLC has selected Million Air as its fixed base operator in the second of four buildings it is developing near the northern Colorado regional airport.
BA Group is managing the 30-acre Discovery Air development project. Its four buildings will each measure 37,000 square feet. The first, Torreys Peak, is almost finished and almost full. The second, Longs Peak, will pave the way in mid-2022 and its construction will take a year. The entire complex is intended for general aviation, business jets and possibly charter. It includes a hangar, offices and a restaurant.
Martin Lind’s Water Valley Land Co. is developing the project.
âWe did it on behalf of Discovery Air and Martin Lind,â said David Vaughan, director of BA Group, âand knowing Martin the developer, we know Million Air is the best brand in the business. Martin and Roger are two of a kind.
Roger is Roger Woolsey, CEO of Million Air.
The FBO will be managed by REW Investments Inc., a management and owned subsidiary of Million Air.
âIt’s a company-owned store,â Vaughan said.
Million Air is the trading name of Million Air Interlink Inc. in Houston. Its website features 32 locations in North America, including four in other countries. One, coincidentally, is in Burbank, Calif., Where the Northern Colorado Regional Airport began commercial service this month through Avelo Airlines.
An FBO provides fuel, maintenance and hangar services to charter airlines and private aircraft owners.
Million Air has entered the high end of this market. It was founded around 30 years ago by the son of the late Mary Kay Ash, founder of the cosmetics company, and has been owned and sold on several occasions, usually involving private capital.
A dozen of its sites are franchised by Kansas-based luxury hotel company Freeman Holdings LLC, whose holdings include a resort in South Fork and independent FBOs under its own name and ACI Jet in California. A spokesperson said Freeman was not involved with the new FBO.
BA Group is located in McKinney, Texas with a Colorado office in Englewood.
