Owned and operated by the city of Concord, Concord Regional Airport’s 24-hour FBO is located 15 minutes northeast of Charlotte’s central business district. Concord Regional Airport boasts a 7,400-foot runway and a control tower that operates from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m daily (with extended hours during peak events).
The FBO offers Phillips 66 Aviation branded fuel, hangar space and ramp parking, along with all of the other ground services for business and general aviation customers, including flight planning room and a renovated pilots lounge featuring satellite TV and high-speed internet workstations.

Quintessentially Aviation Handling (QA FBO), officially launching their new FBO at NBAA 2013, has begun operating at Shannon Airport, a popular gateway airport for European, Russian and Middle Eastern business aviation flights destined for the United States. The 24/7/365 operations, clear weather records, 3,200 meter runway, and the fact that it hosts the only pre-customs clearance facility outside of the Americas makes the airport an attractive technical stop for transatlantic flights to the USA, according to company officials.
Though the FBO is operational and providing full ground services to aircraft, the construction of the terminal facilities is ongoing and slated for completion in December. The 1,750-square-foot passenger and crew facilities will include a flight planning center, crew rest area, showers, WiFi, satellite TV and a passenger lounge.
With the addition of Concord Regional Airport and Quintessentially Aviation Handling, the Air Elite Network now includes 32 locations worldwide. The network was established in late 2011 and each FBO must meet a number of airport, facility and service quality standards to qualify for membership
