2011 ends on high note for Smyrna Air Center

Tennessee’s Smyrna Air Center is reporting that 2011 was a record year for sales and service, milestones and noteworthy accomplishments.

“After seeing a stagnated 2010 with a soft market, our goals for 2011 were exceeded in dramatic fashion,” said Vice President and General Manager Neal Ropp. “We encountered growth in fuel sales by several hundred thousand gallons from our … FBO; our maintenance and avionics departments have been and continue to see growth in all areas, going into 2012 and we have added key personnel such as a Director of Marketing and Sales and Director of Business Development.”

“Power 90 engine conversion sales started making a comeback with two aircraft being added to our completion portfolio and we began flight testing on the new GE H80 engine for the King Air 90 series aircraft,” added Kenneth Frazier, Director of Marketing and Sales. “In addition, Smyrna Air Center plans to augment the existing STC to include the King Air 100 series for engine modification and based on our potential growth in that particular market we have added Rio Sur Group, Bogota, Columbia S.A. as an install center (internationally) and Mather Aviation in California as an additional install center in the western United States.”

“In keeping with our objectives and recognizing further potential we are also in the process of adding Part 135 operations and Part 91K fractional aircraft sales. We look forward to internal organic growth as well as national and international sales opportunities moving forward into 2012,” concluded Bob Fields, President and CEO of Smyrna Air Center.

Smyrna Air Center’s facility at Smyrna/Rutherford County Airport (MQY) houses an FBO, a 145 Maintenance Repair Station and Avionics Shop and the Power90 King Air Conversion Program. Smyrna/Rutherford County Airport was recognized as Airport of the Year for 2011 for the state of Tennessee.
