Heritage Aviation acquires Atlantic Aviation’s Burlington FBO

first_imgHeritage 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.  The FBO division provides 24/7 ground handling, fueling, deicing and related aviation support services and is ideally situated as an international technical stop with U.S. Customs on-site.  The Company’s Diamond Award winning FAA certified repair station has provided aircraft maintenance and avionics services continuously for twenty-five years.  The Company’s charter division, Heritage Flight, operates aircraft globally and domestically.  Heritage Aviation operates a LEED Gold certified general aviation facility, including on-site renewable energy, as part of a commitment to environmental sustainability.About Macquarie Infrastructure CompanyMacquarie Infrastructure Company owns, operates and invests in a diversified group of infrastructure businesses providing basic, everyday services, to customers in the United States.

Trail Mix – Leftover Salmon

first_imgI first remember hearing the name Leftover Salmon in the mid-nineties after moving to Charlottesville. I can still see the photocopied handbill – printed on a violent shade of purple – stapled on a telephone pole outside a record shop on the Corner. I later caught the band for the first time at the old pavilion there on the Downtown Mall and have been a fan ever since.For over twenty-five years, these genre-bending godfathers of jam – led by Vince Herman and Drew Emmitt – have been touring the country with their own take on bluegrassy country music, regularly whipping crowds into a frenzy with extended jams and frenetic solos.Last week, Leftover Salmon released Something Higher, their latest collection of new tunes. Trail Mix is happy to feature “Southern Belle” off the new record this month.Coinciding with the release of the new record is a partnership with a number of superb adventure gear companies that led to the creation of the Something Higher line of products. The band collaborated with Meier Skis, Winterstick Snowboards, Osprey Backpacks, and EcoVessel to create a collection of gear that exemplifies Leftover Salmon’s status as a true mountain band.I recently caught up with banjo player – and native North Carolinian – Andy Thorn to chat about the new record, salmon recipes, the Something Higher gear partnerships, and a shared appreciation for handmade American denim.BRO – I love that Pointer Brand coat you are rocking the latest band pic. Kudos for the strong denim game.AT – Yeah, we were playing a brewery near Bristol and we got to take the Pointer Brand factory tour. So cool to see an old-school denim factory like that still functioning. They were super generous and gave us a few jackets afterwards, so I rep it any time I can.BRO – Can you remember the first time you got to tell someone, “I play banjo with Leftover Salmon,” and how it felt?AT – I can’t really remember the first time telling someone I’m in the band. Really, the coolest part about being in the band is all the good memories I have from seeing them around North Carolina from the time I was fifteen. Saw them through college at UNC, at Merlfest, at Cat’s Cradle in Chapel Hill, Ziggy’s, and even a frat party at Duke. Being a part of restarting the band has been super cool and I hope we keep going for a long time.BRO – I am interested in the partnerships the band entered into with some kick-ass outdoor gear companies. I am a hiker and biker. If you had to recommend one piece of Something Higher gear for me to get my hands on, what would it be?AT – All the products are really great. The EcoVessel water bottle even has a strainer at the top so you can put loose leaf tea in it. But my favorite are the Meier skis. I got to be there while my skis were made and watching the process go down was amazing. The core is made of beetle kill wood and the glue is so ecofriendly. They are amazing skis.BRO – You love being in what you call a “mountain band.” Describe the perfect day in the mountains for me.AT – A perfect day in the mountains is waking up in Telluride, Colorado, on a powder day and getting to ski with your wife, bandmates, and hopefully a local tour guide. Then head to the Floradora for happy hour before we play a show at the Sheridan Opera House. Doesn’t get much better than that. The same pattern can be repeated in any mountain town across America. As long as there’s the outdoors, friends, and pickin’, it’s a great day in the mountains as far as I am concerned.BRO – Favorite way to prepare salmon?AT – I love grilling salmon steaks with blackening spice. The steaks have more fat so they’re way tastier than the standard filet. I’m also becoming addicted to smoked salmon belly. So good!Andy and his mates in Leftover Salmon are in the midst of a run of dates across the Southeast this weekend. Catch the band at the Aiken Bluegrass Festival tonight, the North Carolina Brewers & Music Festival tomorrow, and at the Pour House in Charleson, South Carolina, on Sunday.For more information on the new record, tour dates, or the Something Higher outdoor gear partnerships, please surf over to the band’s website.And be sure to check out “Southern Belle,” along with tracks from Sarah Shook, Mat Kearney, Kerri Powers, Luke Winslow-King, and more on this month’s Trail Mix.last_img read more

WATCH: Vin Scully, Fernando Valenzuela, Steve Yeager move crowd during Game 2 first pitch

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error An online petition begging for a retired Vin Scully to participate in Fox’s broadcast of the World Series garnered more than 6,000 signatures. They didn’t get their wish, but a ceremony on the field prior to Game 2 came close.With a microphone in hand, Scully narrated his efforts as he walked to the pitcher’s mound at Dodger Stadium, ostensibly to deliver the ceremonial first pitch.“You know what I’m thinking right now,” Scully said as he walked, “somewhere up in heaven Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Gil Hodges are laughing their heads off: Look who’s throwing out the first ball at the World Series.”Only Scully, who turns 90 in November, didn’t throw the ball. He rocked into a windup, then stopped and said he injured his rotator cuff (wink, wink). Umpires for years would tip their caps to Vin Scully before games. All of the WS umpires made a line for Scully as he came off the mound— Erik Boland (@eboland11) October 26, 2017 So Scully called for a left-hander, and former Dodgers pitcher Fernando Valenzuela emerged from the dugout – to the delight of the crowd. It was Valenzuela, now a member of the Dodgers’ Spanish-language broadcast team, who threw the pitch to a former Dodgers catcher, 1981 World Series co-MVP Steve Yeager.The televised ceremony concluded a long pregame ceremony that included Brad Paisley singing the National Anthem and an eardrum-rattling flyover.— J.P.
