Ross Aviation confirmed today that it has acquired the assets and current FBO operations of Chester County Aviation at Chester County G O Carlson Airport in Coatesville, Pennsylvania (KMQS). Consistent with Ross Aviation’s belief that airports and FBO customers are best-served by local businesses — with local management, a local perspective and local market knowledge — the FBO will continue to operate as Chester County Aviation and Bruce Sagnor has been retained as general manager.
“We are thrilled to now serve Coatesville, Chester County and West Philadelphia. We view this FBO as a strong growth opportunity due to airport and highway congestion, ground and air delays, and the higher costs associated with operating at Philadelphia International Airport,” says Ross Aviation president and CEO Jeff Ross. “This is also a strategic addition to the Ross Aviation Family of FBOs and complements our growth in the Northeast, which already includes Trenton, New Jersey and will soon include a third location that I am not yet at liberty to discuss,” adds Ross.
Chester County Aviation extends the Ross Aviation Family of FBOs to17 airports in ten states stretching from Hawaii to New Jersey and from Florida to Washington State. Unlike its competitors, Ross Aviation acquires and operates locally-managed FBOs that retain their name, personnel and unique attributes. Ross Aviation provides network benefits and capital for growth. The Ross Aviation Family consists of Bradley Pacific Aviation (six locations in Hawaii), Scottsdale AirCenter (KSDL), Miami Executive Aviation (KOPF), Denver AirCenter (KBJC), Ronson Aviation (KTTN), Corporate Aircraft (KFAT), XN Air (KGEG), Santa Fe AirCenter (KSAF), Laredo Aero Center (KLRD), Tradition Aviation (KTRM), and Williston Jet Center (KISN), which is a recent joint venture with Fargo Jet Center and Overland Aviation.
