Beyond a Fixed Base Operation
Going beyond the standard definition of an FBO, or what is commonly referred to as our Executive Terminal, our facility is thoughtfully designed to provide you with the most refined and relaxing accommodations. Located at Oakland County International Airport in Waterford, Michigan we have been servicing both regional and global travelers for over 50 years. We are the premier aviation provider creating ease of access into Southeast Michigan and the surrounding areas.
“I’ve met all kinds of inspiring people in aviation – I’ve shaken hands with three U.S. presidents out on the ramp. But overall, what really inspires me, and gives me the most satisfaction, is doing something that makes other people’s lives easier. I’ll do everything in my power to make sure our clients have the best experience, in every situation.”
– Bob Sarazin, VP FBO Services
