Hill Aircraft Celebrates 65th Anniversary

Hill Aircraft, one of North America’s longest running familyowned FBO’s, is proudly celebrating our 65th year in operation. While the past year has come with many unique challenges due to COVID-19, this anniversary provides a special opportunity to reflect on just how far the business has come.

Hill Aircraft was founded in 1955 by Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame legend Guy Hill, Sr. His guiding core principles of confidence, tenacity, and an appreciation for whatever life brought his way contributed to how Hill Aircraft has navigated all of the ups and downs the business has endured over time. From his early beginnings as a small business owner struggling to make payroll, Hill prevailed through a fire in 1962 that burned the FBO facility to the ground by setting up offices the next day in a T-hangar and getting right back to work.
