APP acquires Witham Field FBO operations
The Stuart FBO will be integrated into APP's growing network of locations. The company has been operating along Florida's Treasure Coast for many years and appreciates the explosive growth potential.

US FBO group APP Jet Center has acquired FBO operations at Witham Field airport in Stuart, Florida from Atlantic Aviation.

Atlantic is in the process of acquiring the Ross Aviation FBO network, which has its own Witham Field FBO. It is therefore divesting itself of its original facility and moving into the former Ross building.

The acquisition by APP complements its existing operations in Washington DC; Denver, Colorado; Fort Pierce, Florida; and San Francisco, California.

CEO Dan Harrow says: "We are delighted to be integrating Stuart into APP's growing network of FBO locations. We have been operating along Florida's Treasure Coast for many years and have firsthand knowledge of the explosive growth for general aviation in south Florida."

APP is focused on enhancing its platform through a combination of organic growth initiatives and complementary acquisitions and feels that the Stuart acquisition is emblematic of its commitment to continued growth in diverse and compelling markets across the country. It is making new infrastructure and other services available at its FBO locations.

Harrow adds: "APP will continue to ensure that discerning customers at Stuart and our other FBO locations receive world-class service every day, with a focus on safe, secure and sustainable operations."
