Originally founded in October 2009, the FBO is owned and operated by Tristate Aviation Group of Florida. It’s the largest employer on the airfield with a total of 12 employees servicing the FBO and six mechanics managing the largest maintenance facility on the airfield, Suncoast Maintenance Center, a Cessna-authorized service facility.
The location boasts more than 30,000 square feet of hangar space, and over six acres of tiedowns and apron area, servicing both piston and jet aircraft. The facility offers both full-service and self-service avgas, and the center recently purchased 2015 Jet A and avgas trucks, FBO officials note.
Future upgrades include an additional two acres of ramp/apron area and an additional high-tech maintenance facility.
