Signature Flight Support, the world’s largest network of fixed-base operators (FBO), opened its newest location at Scottsdale Airport.
FBOs provide aircraft support services at general aviation airports. Signature’s Scottsdale facility includes a 12,000 square foot terminal and 145,000 square feet of hangar space capable of housing any large cabin business aircraft. Additional amenities include concierge services, passenger and pilot lounge areas and 32,000 square feet of shop and office space.
“Signature is a premier international fixed-base operator,” said Gary Mascaro, aviation director. “We are excited to welcome them to Scottsdale and offer customers two exceptional choices for their flight support services in our community: Landmark Aviation and now Signature.”
Signature will operate the facility previously called Scottsdale AirCenter, which became available when Landmark Aviation, which operates another FBO at Scottsdale Airport, purchased it as part of a nationwide acquisition. The Department of Justice required Landmark to divest the Scottsdale AirCenter lease, allowing Signature Flight Support to step into the valuable Scottsdale market.
Maria Sastre, President and Chief Operating Officer for Signature Flight Support commented on the acquisition, “Scottsdale AirCenter represents an important addition to our world-class FBO locations in our global network. Their reputation for exceptional customer service was one of many attributes Signature considered in making this acquisition. Scottsdale AirCenter is a fantastic facility in a key market for Signature. We welcome the staff and customers of Scottsdale AirCenter to the Signature family.”
