GTU Jet to move base operations at Georgetown Municipal Airport
GEORGETOWN, Texas (May 3, 2017) – GTU Jet, the largest fixed base operator (FBO) servicing Georgetown Municipal Airport, is relocating their offices to a facility closer to the runway on Monday, May 8. The hangar and office building, which is adjacent to the airport terminal and air traffic control tower, is already part of GTU Jet’s leasehold.
The move comes on the heels of a successfully renegotiated lease with the city, led by Texas Aviation Partners, the FBO’s operator.
“We are ready and excited for the higher visibility,” said Ken Mabe, General Manager of GTU Jet. “The new location will make us easier to find for pilots visiting Georgetown for the first time.”
The space will include a dedicated frequency enabling air to ground communications with the FBO, a flight planning area, pilot snooze room, conference facilities, and a larger break room and rest area. Additionally, pilots will have access to a new diesel powered GPU, lavatory cart, and nitrogen service.
“We have invested heavily in the amenities we offer transient customers and tenants of the airport,” said Mabe. “Our level of service continues to increase. It makes sense to be closer to our customers on the airside so we can better serve them.”
GTU Jet will continue to operate and manage their existing hangar and ramp area, as well as the other buildings within their campus.
