Revolution Aviation, April 25, 2017 - On April 1, 2017, a new fixed-base operator (FBO), ACI Jet Center, took over from Signature Flight Support at John Wayne Airport, in Orange County, California.
Revolution Aviation was quick to welcome and establish new relationships with ACI Jet Center where they have operated since August 2013.
The growing flight school is the only operation on the airfield that instructs in fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, thus the need for space as it grows is now at the forefront.
John Wayne Airport has 501 acres dedicated to the airfield, which is 36 times smaller than Dallas Fort Worth airport in Texas, so space is definitely at a premium in Orange County.
Revolution has signed a lease for three more hangars and additional ramp space totaling almost 7,000 square feet.
“ACI Jet Center has been an absolute pleasure to work with and they really support GA, which is very encouraging considering John Wayne Airport in Orange County gets just four percent of their revenue from GA tenants and the city does little to assist future pilots in their quest of learning to fly,” said Mark Robinson, CEO.
Looking forward, Revolution Aviation plans to be a vocal part of the huge new planning design concept at the John Wayne Airport. Building is expected to start in 2019.
