In what is the aviation version of the Oscars, Sheltair has brought home a trophy. Aviation International News (AIN) has presented the family-owned company with the 2020 Top Flight Award for Best New FBO Facility, recognizing its recently opened FBO at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC) in Broomfield, Colorado.
AIN first disclosed its desire to acknowledge the best and brightest in business aviation through the Top Flight Awards in October 2020, when it announced a carefully selected pool of nominees in various categories, including Best New FBO Facility. In this class, Sheltair BJC measured against top-rated FBOs in Austin-Bergstrom, Palm Springs/Thermal, Van Nuys, Mcleallan-Palomar, and Houston Hobby. The AIN editorial team unanimously voted Sheltair as the winner after reviewing all award criteria, which included general design and market significance, overall passenger and crew experience, COVID-19 mitigation, quality of amenities and hangar features.
