Lag ready to soar as TAC Air FBO manager
Christina Lang's first encounter with TAC Air occurred at the 2014 NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas. Having started her career at TAC Air Provo, she has now ascended to the position of general manager at Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Christina Lang has been described as a strong female aviator.

TAC Air has promoted Christina Lang to lead its FBO in Fort Smith, Arkansas as general manager. A six-year veteran of TAC Air, Lang is prepared to join the team at TAC Air - FSM as a hands-on manager of the business using her background in administration and operations.

She officially stepped into this role during the last week of May: “I'm excited by the opportunity to become a part of the Fort Smith team and support the TAC Air commitment to providing customers and tenants service with no ceiling.” As GM, Lang's key responsibilities involve overseeing day-to-day operations, hangar management and leasing while maintaining relationships with TAC Air customers and the Fort Smith Regional airport.

Lang has relocated to Fort Smith from Dallas, where she served three years in a system-wide role for TAC Air as manager of administrative services. “The past three years I have been able to experience and learn firsthand from 15 different GMs and CSMs running FBOs in the TAC Air system to help me prepare for this position in a market I can help to nurture and grow,” she continues.

Prior to this, Lang worked as customer service manager at TAC Air - RDU in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina and customer service representative at TAC Air - PVU in Provo, Utah. She charted her course in aviation at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona, where she studied Aeronautical Science. She also completed her commercial pilot certificate and worked as a corporate pilot flying mining executives in Arizona and New Mexico.

Lang's first encounter with TAC Air occurred at the 2014 NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas. There, she met TAC Air - SLC GM, Mike McCarty who invited Lang to visit the FBO for a tour when she returned home to Salt Lake City. “Once I visited, I knew I wanted to work for TAC Air. And I got the opportunity, starting at the TAC Air FBO in Provo.”

Director of FBO administrative services for the TAC Air system and past GM of TAC Air - FSM, Carol McNally, shares: “I am thrilled to see a strong female associate like Christina rise to the general manager position within our organisation. As more women ascend to a place of leadership in aviation, I look forward to watching her soar. I am pleased to hand the controls of the Fort Smith FBO operation to another strong female aviator.”

“Working her way up by successfully mastering several roles within the FBO, Lang's extensive knowledge, industry and internal company experience, along with her enthusiasm and eagerness to learn make her an ideal leader to take the business at TAC Air - FSM FBO to new heights,” adds Joe Gibney, TAC COO.
