As a full-service FBO, Avflight Grand Rapids provides fuelling services, ground handling, aircraft detailing and washing, de-icing service, catering, 24/7 personal concierge services, car washing and fuel pricing discounts.
The new Avflight facility has been greeted with blue skies.

Avflight Corporation, in conjunction with Gerald R. Ford International airport, is opening a new FBO and hangar facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Thanks to the effort of the FBO, airport and construction teams, the project met its spring 2020 projection despite any complications during the COVID-19 health crisis.

Built on a five-acre leased parcel at the airport, Avflight's new facility includes a 5,000 sq ft FBO building, plus a 30,000 sq ft hangar. Located on the airport's east side, Avflight offers convenient access to the terminal and taxiways/runways, as well as the local highway system.

The facility was constructed in the contemporary Avflight style with the needs of the traveller in mind, and includes a pilot lounge and a passenger lounge. The hangar accommodates aircraft up to a G650 with a 28-ft door and features 400 AMP electric service. As a full-service FBO, Avflight Grand Rapids provides full fuelling services, expert ground handling, aircraft detailing and washing, de-icing service, catering, 24/7 personal concierge services, complimentary car washing and Avflight Network fuel pricing discounts.

Other services provided to the airport community include premiere indoor car parking, secured access and 1,650 sq ft of office space. The FBO will also ultimately bring more than 30 new jobs to the Grand Rapids community.

“We are thrilled to bring Avflight's expertise and passion for aviation to GRR as a gateway to West Michigan,” says Garrett Hain, Avflight's VP of finance. “The region is full of vibrant communities and is an epicentre for business, education, art, dining, entertainment and tourism in Michigan. Our investment reflects our long-term commitment to the airport and the services it provides.”
