Cat gets the cream as Lynx acquires Fort Lauderdale location
With three FBO acquisitions under its belt in 2018, Lynx FBO Network continues to seek further locations in North America. The first purchase of the year is in Florida's strategically-located Fort Lauderdale Executive.

Lynx FBO Network, a portfolio company of The Sterling Group, has acquired the FBO assets of World Jet at Fort Lauderdale Executive airport in Florida. The acquisition brings Lynx's tally to seven locations.

“We see this expansion into the Florida market, and in particular south Florida, as an integral part of our growing network of FBOs,” says Lynx president and partner Chad Farischon. “We look forward to working with the Fort Lauderdale Executive airport, the city of Fort Lauderdale and the local FBO team to deliver a best-in-class service offering for our customers in the south Florida region.”

In the coming months, Lynx plans to make investments in the newly-acquired facility, including a refresh of the facility grounds and the design and development of a new terminal.

Lynx now has locations in Destin, Florida; Minneapolis (Anoka), Minnesota; Portland (Aurora), Oregon; Little Rock, Arkansas; Napa, California; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and now Fort Lauderdale. Its vision is to build a ‘values-based’ FBO network known for exceptional service and quality, a rewarding team member experience and a commitment to continuing excellence. Its team is comprised of industry veterans who have worked together building FBO networks over many years, serving in management roles at numerous large networks including Landmark Aviation, Atlantic Aviation and Trajen. Lynx and Sterling continue to actively seek FBO acquisitions in North America.
