Two fixed-base operators (FBOs) in New England, United States, have become the latest facilities to join the Shell Aviation Fuel network.
The addition of Colombia Air Services’ two facilities at Maine’s Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport and Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional Airport to the Shell network has been welcomed by the company’s v-p of administration Melissa Duzguner.
“The Columbia Aviation Companies have served the general and corporate aviation communities for nearly 40 years,” said Duzguner. “Our partnership with Shell offers our customers quality fuel and FBO programs.”
The two centres are hubs of tourism, with “Down East” Bar Harbor attracting visitors for their renowned lobsters and the natural beauty of Acadia National Park.
The FBO has two hangars of 6,400 sq ft and 3,200 sq ft, a 5,880-sq-ft maintenance hangar, passenger and pilot lounges, a shopping area and concierge, amongst other amenities.
The Rutland facility, right in the middle of Vermont’s ski region, accommodates a different kind of winter tourism, with its close proximity to six major ski resorts, mountains, lakes, golf courses and campgrounds.
Its 40,000 sq ft of total aircraft storage space and 4,000 sq ft of office space is specially suited to dealing with cold weather operations.
