November 25, 2020 – Signature Flight Support, the world’s largest network of Fixed Base Operations (FBOs), has relocated its private aviation facilities at the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport in Louisiana to a newly renovated terminal and hangar complex. The transition marks a major change in Signature’s on-airport presence following the company’s acquisition of its original Baton Rouge premises following the acquisition of Landmark Aviation in 2017.
The well-appointed campus consists of 20,000 sq. ft. of public, office, and hangar space, including an attached 15,000 sq. ft. hangar capable of housing numerous business jets. Additional amenities and services include large conference rooms, a pilot lounge, and crew showers. In addition, Signature Baton Rouge continues to offer expert ground handling for private aircraft.
“Signature Flight Support is committed to the growth of private aviation at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport and the greater Baton Rouge area” expressed Signature Senior Vice President Operations Geoff Heck. “We are proud to serve residents and visitors to the city, and our new facility allows us to grow our on-field presence in greatly renewed surroundings.”
“The expansion of private aviation capabilities at Baton Rouge by Signature Flight Support is a testament to the strength and importance of this group of airport users” shared Mike Edwards, Director of Aviation for the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport. “General aviation continues to be a commercial driver to both the airport and our city, generating over 4,500 jobs and an annual $1.1 billion dollars in economic impact for the Baton Rouge area.”
