Falcon Field lands new fueller and FBO

Demand for fuel and other aviation services is expanding quickly at Mesa's Falcon Field airport in Arizona. The latest full service FBO on the field is Cunningham Aviation, run by proud Mesa natives and regular Falcon customers George and Nikki Cunningham.

"We're really excited to be the new full service FBO on the field," says George Cunningham. "This is where I learned to fly about 20 years ago. As a pilot, the best thing about Falcon Field is how easy it is to get in and out of, and the tower is by far the best in the Phoenix area to work with."

Cunningham Aviation has partnered with World Fuel Services, and offers full-service Jet A and 100LL as well as a self-service 100LL island.

With an additional fuel provider on the field, the Cunninghams expect the Mesa airport to show up on the radar more frequently for private pilots and charter companies looking for fuel, hangar and tie-down leasing as well as other aircraft and pilot services.

Cunningham Aviation can be found in a newly renovated 30,000 sq ft hangar originally built by Howard Hughes in the mid '70s. It is where the Hughes AH-64, now known as the Apache Longbow attack helicopter, was developed and built until 1984.

The Cunninghams and their crew celebrated this latest endeavour with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the facility, with special guests such as former US Congressman Barry Goldwater Jr, a lifelong pilot like his father, as well as Mesa mayor John Giles and newly elected Mesa council member Alicia Goforth.
