Avfuel Corporation and revv aviation entered into a branded fuel supply agreement as the latter assumed operation of the FBO at Schaumburg Regional Airport (K06C) in Schaumburg, Ill.
The Village of Schaumburg chose revv aviation, formerly Carver Aero, to take over the location after the previous operator left the facility, and entered into a long-term lease with revv as of Feb. 1, 2022.
The addition of Schaumburg brings revv aviation’s Avfuel-branded locations to six, joining Chicago/Aurora, Ill. (KARR), Janesville, Wis. (KJVL), and three Iowa locations: Council Bluffs (KCBF), Davenport (KDVN) and Muscatine (KMUT).
“Avfuel is proud to join revv aviation in its support of Midwestern communities,” Joel Hirst, Avfuel’s senior vice president of sales, said.
“The Schaumburg airfield serves a burgeoning area and its addition to the Avfuel Network will provide premier service options for Avfuel’s flight department customers.”
The new FBO is a natural addition to the company’s network according to Guy Lieser, CEO of revv aviation.
“Schaumburg is the closest northern airport to the city of Chicago and its three-million people,” Lieser said, noting the airfield is currently under-utilized.
“We see tremendous opportunity to serve both the local community and Chicago’s business center.”
The Schaumburg FBO facility comprises 13,952-square-feet of customer-centric accommodations, housing a passenger terminal, an executive conference room with full A/V capabilities and seating for 20, a lounge, and hangar space able to accommodate up to medium-sized aircraft, like a Citation Ultra.
The company looks forward to expanding aviation services in Schaumburg, according to Lieser.
An open house is scheduled for Monday, May 9, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the FBO.
“Our goal is to work with the village regarding additional hangar construction, as well as increasing our flight school, charter services and maintenance operations,” Lieser said.
