North Texas New FBO Terminal Now Active
Rise Aviation, the sole service provider at North Texas Regional Airport (KGYI), has opened its new fixed-base operator (FBO) terminal. The 10,720sqft, two-storey building has been planned since 2017, when the location was known as Lake Taxoma Jet Center.
Decorated with artwork of area landmarks by local artists, the FBO includes a passenger lobby with multiple seating areas, refreshment bar, 12-seat conference room, business centre, pilot lounge, quiet room, flight-planning area, on-site car rental, and 1,750sqft of tenant suites. The FBO also provides 850sqft of office space for the airport administration.
The Avfuel-branded FBO has 67,000sqft of hangar space that can accommodate ultra-long business jets, along with 25 acres of ramp for aircraft parking. A second construction phase will start early next year to add another 22,000-sqft hangar followed by an airside arrival canopy.
“With the growth in the DFW Metroplex continuing to move rapidly towards Grayson County, many business owners or investors considering expanding, relocating or starting a new venture in Grayson County will arrive in North Texas Regional Airport in a business aircraft,” said Rise general manager Mike Livezey. “(Our) new FBO terminal will be an attractive and welcoming ‘front door’ and customers first visual cue. Grayson County’s elected and business leaders are proactive in planning, investing, and building the infrastructure necessary to accommodate any growth they are considering.”
