Hillwood and its Alliance Aviation Services division will soon complete construction and unveil a new FBO facility at Perot Field Fort Worth Alliance airport in Texas. As all aspects of aviation business operations continue to grow at Alliance airport, so does the need for larger, enhanced facilities to accommodate crews and visiting guests, the company reports. The luxurious new FBO is a continuation of Alliance Aviation Services' three decade legacy of providing best-in-class and award-winning support services to general and corporate aviation as well as military and air cargo operations. Construction of the new facility is scheduled to be completed in December 2022.
The FBO space encompasses more than 20,000 sq ft of lounges and meeting facilities along with an additional 68,000 sq ft of attached hangar space. Alliance Aviation Services now has six hangars totalling approximately 200,000 sq ft to support the growing fleet of based aircraft. Expanding upon the current FBO full-service offerings, the new space will allow for additional, first-class accommodations for flight crews, as well as more flexible, spacious lounges for pilots and passengers. Outdoor seating with ramp views has been integrated into the landscape as well. The 13901 Aviator Way building offers hangar space and premium office space for lease.
"The new FBO at Perot Field Fort Worth Alliance airport uniquely positions us for the growing demand for an elite, private flying experience," says Christian Childs, president of Alliance Aviation Companies at Hillwood. "Pilots and passengers will soon have access to expanded amenities and the high level of customer service they've become accustomed to over the years.”
The world's first industrial airport, Alliance airport features a vast array of flight services including air cargo, corporate and government aviation, and is the cornerstone for the 27,000 acre AllianceTexas development, a public-private partnership. Born out of a collaboration between Hillwood, the City of Fort Worth and the FAA, it is now a key part of the Alliance Texas Mobility Innovation Zone (MIZ), which also includes FedEx Southwest Regional Sort Hub and Amazon Air Regional Hub. Alliance airport is currently ranked as one of the top 20 US air cargo airports by the FAA, moving more than 2.4 billion pounds of cargo in 2021, a volume increase of 45.75 per cent from the previous year. In 2020, it was named World Fuel Rewards Top 10 Best by Air Elite and received the Air Elite Marketing Masters Award. In 2018, it was recognised as the No 1 Air Elite Diamond location and was named Air Elite Diamond Service Location of the Year.
Following Fort Worth City Council and FAA approval, Alliance airport was recently renamed Perot Field Fort Worth Alliance airport. Hillwood plans to host an event in December 2022 to mark the official name change, showcasing the new facility and honouring the legacy of Texas businessman and former presidential candidate H Ross Perot Sr.
