The Air Elite by World Fuel Network, a global network of elite FBOs, has welcomed B. Coleman Aviation, a go-to location for safe, quick and efficient access to the Chicago area.

As a business aviation focused facility, B. Coleman Aviation serves a convenient option to the congested, commercial, class B airspace of Chicago Midway International airport, O’Hare International airport and Chicago Executive airport. Based out of the International Gary/Chicago International airport (KGYY), B. Coleman Aviation is independently owned, has customs on site and is a full-service fixed base operator (FBO) that is only a 35-minute drive from the loop and metro area.

All Air Elite locations receive an invitation to participate in the global network after a diligent review of their facilities and commitment to high-quality service to passengers and pilots. B. Coleman Aviation successfully exceeded the required qualifications to earn an invitation to the global network curated for elite service. This process is governed by the Air Elite board, comprised of members who maintain the network membership and brand.

B. Coleman Aviation’s modern facility has a unique ramp-side canopy, the only one of its kind in Chicago, that protects passengers and aircraft from the elements and is large enough to house a Bombardier Global Express and a Gulfstream G550. Whether aircraft need to be protected from summer heat and hail or winter weather, B. Coleman Aviation’s hangar space is a superior option year-round. Military, corporate or general aviation aircraft are easily accommodated in B. Coleman Aviation’s hangar space and can expect to save when compared to hangar rental prices to those at nearby facilities. The facility also includes WiFi, a surround sound theatre with a 105-inch screen, conference rooms, a cafe with complimentary beverages, a premier pilots lounge, fitness room and shower facilities.
