Signature Adds Florida FBO

Signature Flight Support Corporation has announced that it has purchased all of the assets of the former Avitat Boca Raton at Boca Raton Airport (BCT) from Premier Aviation.
Located in the resort city of Boca Raton, Florida, Signature says the location is: “perfectly suited to serve the South Florida market including nearby West Palm Beach to the North and Fort Lauderdale to the South.” The FBO facility was constructed in 2005 and has a 17,000 sq ft (1,579m2) terminal and 72,000 sq ft (6,689m2) of hangar space. The wholly-owned facilities will adopt the Signature Flight Support brand.
Commenting on the acquisition, S Michael Scheeringa, President of Signature Flight Support, said: “Avitat Boca Raton is known the world over for its prime South Florida location, luxurious facility and for providing exceptional customer service that aligns perfectly with our Signature Service Promise. Boca brings a premier location to our global network and we welcome them to the Signature team.”
Rhonda Hughes, General Manager for the former Avitat Boca Raton and new General Manager for Signature Boca Raton commented: “We are excited to join the Signature Flight Support network. We feel that we are a very good fit and our customers will continue to enjoy the world-class service they have come to expect from us with the added network benefits only offered by Signature. Our staff are enthusiastic about becoming part of the global Signature family.”
Signature’s custom fuel purchasing programmes and Signature Status loyalty programme, are on offer at Boca Raton. Airframe, engine and avionics line maintenance and inspections are provided by Boca Aircraft Maintenance – an FAA-approved Part 145 Repair Station with EASA and Bermuda authorizations.
