Heritage Aviation, Inc.,Heritage Aviation, Inc has acquired the Atlantic Aviation FBO (Fixed Based Operator) at Burlington International Airport (KBTV). Operations at the location will be managed under the Heritage Aviation brand. Transient general aviation aircraft will be handled at Heritage Aviation’s existing South Ramp Facility. Heritage Aviation now offers nearly 100,000 square feet of heated hangar space. The acquisition is effective today. It will boost employment at Heritage by 20 to 120. Julia Atherton, Public Relations Manager at Heritage, said there was some reduction in employment at Atlantic, which should be more than made up as Heritage continues to grow. She said Heritage has added 65 people in the last five years.Atherton said the former Atlantic facilities will remain open and be used to serve the Burlington Airport-based tenant aircraft community. She said only the transient general aviation aircraft will be directed to the facilities off Williston Road, where the Heritage facilities are accessed.She said terms of the deal will not be released.Meanwhile, Atlantic owner, Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC), said in a statement that it had divested its BTV and Hayward, California, operations, saying they were “sub-scale.” Atlantic, it said, is negotiating the acquisition of additional US-based FBOs. Proceeds from the sales of the Hayward and Burlington operations will be retained to fund a portion of these acquisitions, should negotiations result in a purchase agreement.‘Atlantic concluded that its operations at each of Hayward and Burlington were sub-scale relative to their markets. Selling the FBOs at these airports provides Atlantic with an opportunity to pursue expansion into regions they believe have stronger growth prospects,’ added Hooke.Following the announcement of the sales, MIC reaffirmed its full-year guidance for Atlantic of EBITDA (earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization) of between $125 and $130 million.Atlantic operates the largest network of fixed base operations in the U.S. and opened its newest facility at Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City on June 21st.About Heritage AviationHeritage Aviation is a Burlington, Vermont based diversified aviation services Company providing FBO, Maintenance and Avionics, Charter and Aircraft Management.
