Locally Owned Dulles Aviation announced it will be closing their operations at the Manassas Regional Airport on May 31, 2019. This marks an end to a remarkable family owned Fixed Based Operator (FBO).
Dulles Aviation started at Manassas Regional Airport in 1970 with one hangar. They soon realized that business was growing and needed additional hangar storage. In 1975, five years later, they acquired a new hangar. In the mid 80s, Dulles Aviation started their flight school and have trained hundreds of pilots over the years. They have moved on to become airline pilots, charter pilots, flight instructors, and become professionals in the aviation field. Dulles Aviation also built two new hangars on the east side of the airfield to support the growing need for commerce on both sides of the airport. Dulles Aviation has always been a family friendly full service FBO with all the comforts that you expect when traveling away from home.
Manassas Regional Airport continued to expand over the next few decades with the help of great businesses like Dulles Aviation. They became a cornerstone for the airport and experienced the growing pains that every busy General Aviation (GA) airport experiences. One thing has never changed about Dulles Aviation is their long-term commitment to offering pilots and passengers the best customer service and aviation experience.
On May 31, 2019, Dulles Aviation will be closing its hangar doors one last time. They have been a valuable asset to the airport and the aviation community. “We are thankful for the partnership and quality of service that Dulles Aviation has contributed to the Manassas Regional Airport,” says Juan Rivera, Airport Director. “Dulles Aviation has been a catalysis in the growth and development of the airport. We wish Tom and Joe Gardner and all their instrumental employees, the best.” The airport will host a reception of appreciation in June. Details will be announced at a later date.
All FBO services will be available through APP Jet Center. Customers are encouraged to use other businesses on the airport for their aircraft maintenance, flight training, and rental needs. For additional information about the Manassas Regional Airport, visit us at FLYHEF.COM.
