Pentastar and Avflight lay grand plans at Gerald R Ford
A new facility at Gerald R. Ford International, where Pentastar will have an office, includes a 5,000 sq ft FBO building with 30,000 sq ft hangar capacity that will provide a wide range of support services.
A full suite of services will be available to customers visiting Grand Rapids.

Pentastar Aviation and Avflight have teamed up to provide customers with private jet charter, management and aircraft maintenance support for the newest FBO at Gerald R. Ford International airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“We are continually looking for alliances that complement our service offerings and assist us in reaching our target market. Avflight is a respected and trusted partner with a reputation for excellence that creates a natural synergy between our two companies,” says Pentastar's executive VP of maintenance and sales Brad Bruce. “This partnership will allow us to expose Avflight customers to the full spectrum of services we provide, and having an office at the Avflight facility in Grand Rapids will make it easy for them to take advantage of our combined offerings.”

Avflight, a Michigan-based company operating at more than 20 airports across North America and Europe, six of which are in Michigan, will open a new state-of-the-art FBO in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the spring of 2020. The new facility, where Pentastar will have an office, includes a 5,000 sq ft FBO building with 30,000 sq ft hangar capacity that will provide a wide range of support services for both general aviation and airlines, including fuel sales, hangar storage, aircraft ground handling services, de-icing and concierge services.

“While our facility includes all the amenities of a high-end FBO, we want to have comprehensive services for business aircraft customers,” says Avflight ops VP Joe Meszaros. “Pentastar, also a Michigan based company, has a long history of customer service excellence and its expertise in charter, management and maintenance make it the perfect partner.”
