Five Rivers gushing about latest hangar facility
Five Rivers offers line service, hangar space, AOG maintenance, fuel, catering, car rental, parking, hotel services, crew cars, limousines, hotel shuttles, conference and large meeting rooms, plus a pilot lounge.
The new hangar will be able to accommodate aircraft up to G650 or Global 8000 size.

Five Rivers Aviation, the lone FBO at California's Livermore Municipal airport in San Francisco's Tri-Valley area, is preparing to welcome more traffic to its operation with the construction of a 43,000 sq ft hangar facility.

The $9 million hangar project has an expected completion date of October 2021 and will provide space for aircraft up to a Gulfstream G650 and Global 8000.

“The Tri-Valley business community has long been basing more offices and employees within arm's reach of the Livermore Airport,” says Pete Sandhu, owner of Five Rivers Aviation. “Many of them have developed their own corporate flight departments to facilitate managing large geographies from these offices. This development will meet some of their demand and reduce the amount of repositioning flights necessary to conduct business in Livermore and the Tri-Valley area. Five Rivers is pleased to be a part of the drive to responsibly develop infrastructure to accommodate the office and residential growth of the Tri-Valley.” Five Rivers Aviation is now accepting letters of interest for the hangar space.

Travellers to Five Rivers benefit from uncongested airspace, affording immediate clearances for takeoff and quick climbs to flight level. Precision ILS and GPS approaches guide pilots to long, grooved runways able to accommodate aircraft up to 130,000 lbs. Furthermore, with its location situated outside the region's fog belt, aviators utilising Five Rivers Aviation benefit from Visual Meteorological Conditions when the rest of the Bay Area is overcast.

As a full-service operation, the team is on standby to provide comprehensive line service, transient hangar space, AOG maintenance, cargo operations, unbeatable fuel prices, upscale catering, planeside car rental services, secure parking, private boarding, hotel services, crew cars, limousines, hotel shuttles, conference and large meeting rooms, flight planning, a pilot lounge, showers, a quiet room, a theatre room, complimentary golf clubs, concierge services and a luxurious main lobby.

In addition to Bay Area business, this FBO lands guests in a desirable region with close proximity to popular local attractions, including: Levi's Stadium, Oakland Coliseum, Oracle Arena, Silicon Valley, San Francisco and East Bay, Livermore premium outlets next to the airport, more than 65 local wineries, renowned dining and accommodations, and golf courses.

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