At its 12 July board meeting, West Michigan Regional Airport Authority (WMRAA) approved the transfer of its existing FBO contract with Flyby Air to FlightLevel Aviation. A FBO is a private business contracted with an airport to maintain operations, fuel service, maintenance and flight instruction.

“After careful evaluation, we are pleased to welcome FlightLevel Aviation to WMRA as our FBO,” says director Aaron Thelenwood. “Not only does FlightLevel Aviation provide the same high-quality services that we received under Flyby Air, it has shown great interest in furthering the airport's goals of business and community development.”

By purchasing Flyby Air, FlightLevel Aviation has acquired its existing 20 year contract with WMRA. This contract is not exclusive, and WMRA reserves the right to contract with other FBOs to service the airport. As part of the agreement, FlightLevel has also agreed to maintain staffing levels and provide jobs to all current Flyby Air employees.

FlightLevel Aviation provides FBO services to 10 other airports throughout the north eastern quadrant of the US and will continue to provide the same services offered by Flyby Air.

“We are impressed with FlightLevel's expertise, proven track record of success, positive customer reviews and its commitment to the region,” says board chair Russ Sylte. “It has already shown commitment by meeting with local economic development organisations and its growth plans are in alignment with those of the airport authority.”

The transfer was closed on 15 July and FlightLevel will begin the transition immediately.
