Carver Aero’s two newest FBOs—in Janesville, Wisconsin and Sugar Grove, Illinois—are the latest members to join the Avfuel-branded dealer network.
In July, Iowa-based Carver acquired the Janesville Jet Center, the lone service provider at Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport. It offers a 2,725-sq-ft terminal with a pilot lounge, dining area, eight-seat conference room, and flight planning area, along with a 7,000-sq-ft hangar capable of sheltering light jets and turboprops.
A month later it followed that up with the purchase of Lumanair Aviation Services at Chicago-area Aurora Municipal Airport, which features a 30,000-sq-ft terminal with passenger and pilot lounges, three conference rooms, and flight planning area, as well as offices and a flight school. It has six hangars ranging from 6,400 to 39,000 sq ft and can handle jets up to a Gulfstream G450. The operation also offers a Part 145 repair station and avionics shop.
Both facilities, along with the company’s previous three Iowa locations in Council Bluffs, Davenport, and Muscatine now participate in the Avtrip customer loyalty and contract fuel programs.
“The addition of Janesville and Aurora to the Avfuel Network provides exceptional service options in key Midwestern locations for [our] flight department customers," said Joel Hirst, the fuel supplier’s senior v-p of sales.
