UVair FBO network takes off

The UVair FBO Network, an alliance between EPIC Aviation and the UVair Fuel Program, has revealed its first five member FBOs: Edwards Jet Center in Billings, Mont. (BIL) ; Stevens Aviation in Greer, S.C. (GSP); Ambassador Aviation in Dallas (RBD); Bizjet International in Tulsa, Okla. (TUL); and Million Air Vancouver in Richmond, BC (CYVR).

The UVair FBO Network is comprised of independent FBOs located at airports commonly used by business aviation throughout the United States and Canada, company officials said.

“It was important to our facility to become a member of the UVair FBO Network. From the first time we heard of the plan, we liked the way they approached the concept and knew we were going to belong to a network that was committed to the growth of our facility,” stated Robb Bergeson, general manager at Edwards Jet Center (BIL). “We are excited about the future with the UVair FBO Network.”

“Seeing the UVair FBO Network come to fruition is the culmination of years of planning and careful consideration as to how this alliance could make a true impact within this industry,” explains Steve McCullough, EPIC SVP Business Development and Strategy. “The response has been incredible and these first members to commit are part of a list of over 20 FBOs that have already signed a letter of intent. We truly believe we are creating something the business aviation community wants to be a part of.”

In celebration of the network’s debut, from July 1 through Sept. 30, at UVair FBO Network locations, flight departments and crew can double their UVair or EPIC Card Bravo reward points per gallon on qualifying transactions.
