Business aviation in the steel city: Lynx to add Pittsburgh FBO to network

Lynx FBO Network has announced it has reached an agreement to acquire the FBO assets of Voyager Jet Center (Voyager Jet) at Allegheny County Airport (AGC) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The acquisition, which is expected to close by the end of the month, will mark Lynx’s sixth FBO location and third FBO acquired this year.

“We believe the Pittsburgh market, and its rise as a global innovation city, is a perfect complement to our growing network of FBOs and we look forward to working with the Allegheny County Airport Authority (ACAA), Voyager Jet and the local FBO team to deliver a best-in-class service offering for our customers in the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Matt DeLellis, Chief Financial Officer with Lynx.

Voyager Jet will continue to operate its executive aircraft management, private jet charter, corporate jet sales and maintenance businesses out of the same facilities, now as a tenant of Lynx.

Charles P. Falce, Chief Executive Officer of Voyager Jet, added, “We are excited to be partnering with a national FBO operator with Lynx’s pedigree on this journey.

This is a positive move for our customers, our employees, the Allegheny County Airport, and the local aviation community.”

Pittsburgh’s aviation industry has developed significantly since US Airways moved its hub away from the region following the merger with American Airlines in the mid-2000’s.
