Richmond Executive Aviation (REA), a new aviation service provider at Virginia’s Richmond Executive-Chesterfield County Airport, debuted its facility last week with an open house event.
With a price tag of $2.3 million, the FBO’s 800-sq-ft terminal features a passenger lounge with complimentary refreshments and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ramp, a 15-seat conference room, pilot lounge with snooze room, flight-planning area, flight-training classrooms, crew car, and concierge service. Also included in the construction was a pair of 10,000-sq-ft hangars that can accommodate aircraft up to a Gulfstream G450.
Located northwest of the airport’s main terminal, the full-service FBO provides aircraft charter, management, maintenance, and sales, along with flight instruction. Aircraft and auto detailing are also available and, as an Avfuel-branded location, the FBO participates in the Avtrip customer loyalty program and offers contract fueling.
“Our company is professional, modern, and comfortable,” said Richmond Executive CEO Aviation Mark Hackett, who added that he strives for “attention to detail, an emphasis on customer appreciation, and service beyond excellence.”
