Essential business ASI opens at Clark Regional
Aircraft Specialists always have a busy time of it when the Kentucky Derby is on. This year's race is set for 5 September, and the company is looking forward to welcoming guests to a new 22,600 sq ft facility.
Come 5 September, this desk should be busy with Kentucky Derby guests.

Aircraft Specialists (ASI) has announced the opening of a new FBO and hangar complex at Clark Regional airport in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The 22,600 sq ft facility features a spacious lobby that affords a clear view of the airport as two walls of windows offer ample natural light. Guests also benefit from a functional kitchen, complimentary snacks and beverages, a conference room and a pilot’s lounge, complete with bath. In addition, the complex features a new 18,200 sq ft hangar with 28 ft doors, able to accommodate aircraft up to a G550.

The new facility offers easy access to and from the ramp, in addition to curbside pickup and drop off for customers in the main parking lot. This efficiency, in addition to the FBO’s location 10 minutes north of Louisville, Kentucky, makes ASI a convenient fly-in option in the greater Louisville region and the FBO of choice for the Kentucky Derby. This year’s derby has been rescheduled for Saturday 5 September.

“Our mission is to provide the ultimate client experience by committing to being the best,” says owner Todd Strause. “Our new facility follows this commitment to excellence, and we feel our clients will see a difference compared to other FBOs.”

As a full-service FBO, ASI offers customers 24/7/365 service off a 7,000 ft runway, including: ground handling services, quick turns, hangar and tie-down space, rampside vehicle access, fuelling services with competitive prices, a full- service Part 145 repair service centre, rental cars, crew cars, gourmet catering, concierge services and restaurant options.

As an Avfuel-branded FBO, ASI provides customers with rewards via AVTRIP and competitive prices with Avfuel Contract Fuel. In addition to contract fuel, customers benefit from transaction ease when using the Avfuel Pro Card at ASI with the ability to put everything, including fuel and non-fuel items with or without a fuel purchase, on one transaction, avoiding processing fees.

While the spread of COVID-19 has created new challenges for the aviation community, ASI is considered an essential business and is open to provide services. Its team has taken the necessary precautions for the health and safety of its employees and customers, and can perform the vital tasks required to keep aircraft flying.
