Flight Options, one of the leading fractional aircraft companies in the U.S. has chosen Grand Aire as their preferred FBO for all flights coming in to Toledo Express Airport. Flight Options provides fractional jet ownership services, in which customers share ownership and are guaranteed access to a particular type of aircraft operated by the company. Its fleet of about 110 aircraft includes Beechjet, Hawker, Cessna Citation, and Embraer Legacy jets. Its primary service area spans the continental US and locations within 200 miles of its borders. Besides fractional ownership, Flight Options offers aircraft leasing and management and a membership program, JetPASS, that gives customers access to various aircraft. Investment firms Directional Capital and Resilience Capital own a majority stake in Flight Options.
Flight Options has, for the fourth time, been rated Platinum by the Aviation Research Group/US (ARG/US). This is the highest-status rating given by the aviation research firm. "Flight Options has demonstrated an unmatched commitment to continuous improvement in all areas of aviation operations, maintenance and safety," said Joe Moeggenberg, president of ARG/US. "Only companies which meet or exceed the established ARG/US standards for equipment, maintenance and crew experience achieve a Platinum rating."
Grand Aire's fixed base operation recently completed a major remodel and upgrade. The facility features private meeting rooms, free wireless internet access, HDTV and complimentary Starbucks coffee & tea for our guests. They provide 24/7 service to many fractional carriers, executive aircraft, sports teams and other large groups over the last few years. Many distinguished guests have also used Grand Aire including several campaign stops for President Obama (3 times), President Bush (twice), President Clinton, Senator Clinton's campaign and dozens of sports charters. The FBO is also the official home of the monthly Honor Flights which transport WWII veterans to Washington to view the memorials.
