As the general aviation community assembles in Atlanta for the 63rd National Business Aviation Association Meeting & Convention, one of the industry’s leaders is marking a milestone. After 40 years with the company his father founded as Valley Oil Co., which today is Air BP Aviation Services, Mike Delk has announced his retirement.
While the company started in the home heating oil business it has grown into a leading fuel supplier in the U.S. and Canada. The company has been recognized as one of the top privately-owned Oregon companies.
“It’s been a great 40 years filled with the usual ups and downs that business throws at you. We’ve grown from a start up aviation fuel supply company to a major branded supplier in the industry with nearly 400 branded FBOs along with numerous airlines and other end-user customers,” reflects Delk. “Although I intend to stay involved in the industry, at this point in my life I’m ready to start spending more time with my family.”
Leadership of Air BP Aviation Services and EPIC Aviation is being transitioned to Scott Walker.
