Signal Aviation Services, the primary general aviation service provider for the Lebanon Municipal Airport (LEB) in New Hampshire, has been purchased by long-time employees, Greg Soho and Jason Archambeault. Soho has been the company’s vice president since 1999 and Archambeault has served as director of maintenance since 2007. The FBO has a new name, Granite Air Center.
The sale of the company was finalized July 10 and the new owners assumed control of the organization immediately.
“This is a very exciting time for us,” said Archambeault. “Greg and I recognized quite some time ago what a great opportunity this was. We are really looking forward to the challenges and rewards of ownership!”
The new owners are planning several improvements and upgrades for the company, including purchasing a new deicer, crew car, courtesy van, and ground power unit. “We really want to make some changes that put this organization on a steady growth path,” remarked Soho.
Over the longer term, the pair hopes to find growth through increased fuel volumes, but also through the aircraft maintenance department. “There are many different aircraft manufacturers out there and we are exploring all of them to see what makes the most sense for us,” he said.
Besides carrying Phillips 66 aviation fuels, Granite Air will offer heated hangar space, catering, rental cars, and FAR Part 145 Repair Station maintenance. Free Wi-Fi, a pilot’s lounge, weather room, and courtesy car are other amenities. Corporate hangar space is available. The company’s heated hangar can accommodate aircraft as large as a G-IV. Granite Air Center’s line service department operates seven days a week from 6 am to 10 pm with 24 hour service on request.
