Avflight Harrisburg (KMDT) Cuts Ribbon on New FBO Facility

Avflight Corporation hosted a grand opening reception, complete with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, for its brand-new FBO facility in Harrisburg, Penn. (KMDT), on May 24.

The 5,000 square foot, state-of-the-art FBO building features a conference room, kitchen, pilot lounge, three private pilot rooms, office spaces, a catering kitchen and more. The FBO facility mirrors the contemporary Avflight style for which the brand is known.

Avflight’s facility is situated in a premier location on the airport field next to the main terminal and across the street from a new Marriott-property hotel, which is currently under construction.

“By investing in general aviation—and investing in the Harrisburg region—Avflight’s able to further its goal as a connection facilitator,” said Carl Muhs, Avflight president. “We are proud to be the gateway to central Pennsylvania and, with this new facility, we’re now a more attractive option for tenants. This drives more corporate traffic to Harrisburg and helps support the vitality of the local economy. Avflight is, after all, a member of the Harrisburg community—investing in its infrastructure is a priority for us.”

The new facility is phase one of a two-part development plan for the FBO. Shortly following the grand opening of the FBO facility, Avflight will break ground on a new hangar to total 30,000 square feet. The hangar will be able to accommodate ultra-long-range Gulfstream and Bombardier Global aircraft. Avflight expects the hangar to be complete by January 2019.
