The Arnold Companies (TAC) announces the formation of a new entity to manage upscale private aircraft facilities, beginning at Scottsdale Airport.
The company will operate under the newly formed brand, TAC Private Hangars, providing exclusive hangar and office space with dedicated ground handling services for locally based aircraft tenants, outside the confines of a traditional FBO.
This announcement comes as the company acquires the assets of the 24-year-old Scottsdale aviation company, Gemini Air Group.
In addition, Keystone Aviation, a TAC affiliate company, will be providing aircraft management, charter and Part 145 aircraft maintenance from the premises.
“The TAC family is proud to be adding a new airport into our network as we announce this next phase of expansion,” said The Arnold Companies chairman and CEO, Greg Arnold.
“We are excited to expand the TAC brand to include the exclusive private hangar, office and ground services starting with Scottsdale Airport, operating as TAC Private Hangars.”
On May 1, 2021, TAC Private Hangars and Keystone Aviation picked up the former Gemini Air Group operations in Scottsdale and will continue to offer the same great services to tenants and charter customers who utilize the Keystone Aviation services from the same facilities.
“The launch of TAC Private Hangars is an exciting new chapter for our entire organization,” said Joe Gibney, chief operating officer over TAC Private Hangars.
“The brand extension under TAC is a strategic opportunity for development as we continue to diversify our services and expand into new markets meeting today’s business aviation demand.”
Keystone Aviation is establishing a second hub for its fleet based in Scottsdale, AZ.
“Since Keystone Aviation was founded over 25 years ago, we have prided ourselves on the focus, training and high attention to detail for all parts of the aircraft management, charter and maintenance businesses,” stated Keystone Aviation chief operating officer, Aaron Fish.
“Picking up a second hub in Scottsdale expands our regional footprint south from Salt Lake City in the desert to mountain corridor we fly regularly.
“With the addition of the Scottsdale location, we can now offer a greater selection of aircraft to get customers where they want, when they want,” Fish continued.
“The name simply states what the new facility and company is about, Private Hangars, managed by highly trained associates and efficient business practices so tenants can keep their focus on their business. And for flight crews, especially since flying is their business,” said Arnold.
