Air Elite Adds Nine FBOs to Network

Air Elite has announced the recent addition of nine FBOs to its Diamond Service locations, extending the U.S.-based company's network to six continents and both hemispheres. The nine locations comprise Circle Air Group and Ross Aviation in California, four Hawker Pacific locations in Australia, one Hawker Pacific location in Singapore, the Galaxy FBO in Texas, and Cerulean Aviation in South Carolina.

Circle Air Group at Gillespie Field in El Cajon, California, claims to operate the largest FAA Class IV Part 145 repair shop in the San Diego area. With more than 70,000 square feet of hangar rental space and 400,000 square feet of ramp space, it offers avionics maintenance services on Citations, Gulfstreams, and Falcons, among others. Meanwhile, Long Beach Airport’s Ross Aviation—formerly AirFlite—can service aircraft as large as a Boeing 767.

Air Elite’s new Australian Hawker Pacific locations in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, and Cairns ,as well as the new addition in Singapore, can schedule VIP ground handling for customers. These locations feature VIP lounges, hangar space, and communication facilities for business and travel needs as well as on-site customs, immigration, and quarantine clearance.

Galaxy FBO, at Conroe North Houston Regional Airport, has a three-story facility that features pilot and VIP lounges as well as conference rooms, offices, and a restaurant. Ranging from 13,419 to 38,000-square-feet, its seven hangars can accommodate aircraft as large as the Gulfstream G650.

Last, Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport’s Cerulean Aviation features U.S. customs clearance and full ground-handling support.
