Sixth revv FBO joins Avfuel network
Avfuel Corporation and revv aviation have entered into a branded fuel supply agreement as the latter assumes operation of the FBO at Schaumburg Regional airport in Illinois.
revv's Schaumburg facility is the sixth of its FBOs to join the Avfuel-branded network.

Avfuel Corporation and revv aviation have entered into a branded fuel supply agreement as the latter assumes operation of the FBO at Schaumburg Regional airport in Illinois.

The Village of Schaumburg chose revv aviation, until recently known Carver Aero, to take over the location after the previous operator lNorthwest Flyers left the facility. It entered into a long term lease with revv as of 1 February, 2022.

The addition of Schaumburg brings revv aviation's Avfuel-branded locations to six, joining Aurora Municipal airport in Sugar Grove, Illinois; Southern Wisconsin Regional airport in Janesville, Wisconsin; and three Iowa locations at Council Bluffs, Davenport Municipal and Muscatine Municipal airports.

“Avfuel is proud to join revv aviation in its support of midwestern communities,” says senior vice president of sales Joel Hirst. “The Schaumburg airfield serves a burgeoning area, and its addition to the Avfuel network will provide premier service options for Avfuel's flight department customers.”

The new FBO is a natural addition to the company's network according to revv aviation CEO Guy Lieser. “Schaumburg is the closest northern airport to the city of Chicago and its three million people,” he says, noting the airfield is currently under-utilised. “We see tremendous opportunity to serve both the local community and Chicago's business centre.”

The Schaumburg FBO facility comprises 13,952 sq ft of customer-centric accommodations, housing a passenger terminal, an executive conference room with full A/V capabilities and seating for 20, a lounge, and hangar space able to accommodate up to medium-sized aircraft, like a Citation Ultra.

“Our goal is to work with the village regarding additional hangar construction, as well as increasing our flight school, charter services and maintenance operations,” Lieser says.

In keeping with its foundational business strategy, revv aviation continues to expand its midwest FBO footprint, connecting small towns and providing a full offering of aviation services for student pilots, business and personal travellers and aviators.

As Avfuel-branded locations, revv aviation provides customers with lucrative AVTRIP rewards, competitive prices with Avfuel Contract Fuel and easy transactions when using the Avfuel Pro Card for all their FBO purchases.
