Sixth Citation X at Fort Worth creates Baker's dozen
Now located in the newly built more than 66,000 sq ft facility at Fort Worth Meacham International airport in Texas, Baker is continuing to position the business for growth, and is moving to a home base model.
Fort Worth Meacham International will host the new Citation X.

Baker Aviation, a full-service aircraft maintenance, management and charter company, has added a sixth Citation X to its fleet of 13 aircraft. Now located in the newly built more than 66,000 sq ft facility at Fort Worth Meacham International airport in Texas, Baker is continuing to position the business for growth, which opens several key positions within flight operations and maintenance. Pilot hiring is also fully underway with a move to a home base model.

Company president Stan Baker says: “We have continued to build our fleet at the most critical time. For our business, it is not a comeback from COVID as we never lapsed. Investing in the new facility that we built in 2019 launched our growth strategy of making Baker the charter-management powerhouse in this region that we are today. We are advantageously located in the middle of the country with easy access to either coast, Mexico or the Caribbean, and the Citation X is an outstanding business jet for today's charter market. Placing industry veteran Harry Mitchel as VP of operations earlier this year has also positioned us as leaders in this market, and I look forward to his leadership and success.”

Established in 2008 exclusively as a private jet services company to provide a broad scope of customised aviation services, Baker Aviation has diversified its maintenance platforms and product offerings over the years and today serves as a full-service aircraft maintenance, avionics, management and global charter company. Baker Aviation Services Group was formed in 2019 to manage current strategic partnerships, dealerships, contractual management and compliance, as well as direct Hot-Stop 'L' fire containment kit sales.
