Signature Flight Support has relocated its private aviation facilities at the Baton Rouge Metropolitan airport in Louisiana to a newly renovated terminal and hangar complex. The transition marks a change in Signature's on-airport presence following the company's acquisition of its original Baton Rouge premises as a result of the acquisition of Landmark Aviation in 2017.
The campus consists of 20,000 sq ft of public, office and hangar space, including an attached 15,000 sq ft hangar capable of housing numerous business jets. Additional amenities and services include large conference rooms, a pilot lounge and crew showers. In addition, Signature Baton Rouge continues to offer expert ground handling for private aircraft.
“We are committed to the growth of private aviation at the Baton Rouge Metro airport and the greater Baton Rouge area,” expresses Signature senior VP of operations East, Geoff Heck. “We are proud to serve residents and visitors to the city, and our new facility allows us to grow our on-field presence in greatly renewed surroundings.”
“The expansion of private aviation capabilities at Baton Rouge by Signature Flight Support is a testament to the strength and importance of this group of airport users,” adds Mike Edwards, director of aviation for the Baton Rouge Metropolitan airport. “General aviation continues to be a commercial driver to both the airport and our city, generating over 4,500 jobs and an annual $1.1 billion dollars in economic impact for the Baton Rouge area.”
