Reading Aviation launches FBO services in Pennsylvania
It's a new year and a new era for Reading Regional airport as the airport authority takes over as its sole FBO. It now operates as Reading Aviation, merging the two previous operations into a single authority-run unit.
The Reading Regional airport authority has taken over as the sole FBO on the field.

The airport authority at Reading Regional airport/General Carl A Spaatz Field (KRDG) in Pennsylvania has taken over as the sole FBO on the field. Now operating as Reading Aviation, the FBO merged Millennium Aviation and Reading Jet Center into a single authority-run unit.

"The Reading Regional Airport Authority is proud to now oversee the operation of KRDG's FBO," says airport director Zackary Tempesco. "In doing so, we're able to better serve as a gateway for a growing part of southeastern Pennsylvania. With a leadership team of forward-thinkers, this operational move will help the authority fulfil its mission to elevate and promote our community's economic growth, education and connectivity."

Reading Aviation is conveniently located next to the main terminal on the airfield's east apron. Those flying in enjoy easy access from all directions.

The FBO's 18,000sq ft building, which previously housed Millennium Aviation, offers many amenities including comfortable passenger and pilot lounges, 1,000sq ft of office space, a restaurant and conference room able to seat 10-16 with full A/V capabilities. Reading Aviation also controls over 70,000sq ft of hangar space able to accommodate aircraft up to a Falcon 900.

The facilities will undergo a rebrand and refresh within the next two years to include updated facilities, additional conference space, snooze rooms and day offices.

As a full-service FBO, Reading Aviation provides aviators with jet A and 100LL Avgas, quick-turn services, towing, cargo handling, planeside access, parking, de-icing, GPU, lav service, potable water, maintenance and detailing. Guests also benefit from rental cars, crew cars, shuttle services, catering, dishwashing, laundry, coffee, ice, wi-fi and vending. Its suite of services help it support a diverse customer base of military, corporate and business aviation, air charter, training, aerial inspection, pipeline patrol and recreational flights.

In conjunction with the FBO's opening, Reading Aviation has elected to partner with branded fuel supplier Avfuel Corporation, to give customers gain access to competitive fuel prices with Avfuel Contract Fuel, rewards with AVTRIP and streamlined payment processing with the Avfuel Pro Card, the FBO's preferred payment method. The partnership also grants Reading Aviation access to the FAA-approved Avfuel Training System.

Reading Aviation is open 6.00 a.m. to 11.00 p.m. daily with 24/7 support available upon request.
