Avfuel recently welcomed Gillespie Air Services to its global network of FBOs. Located in Fredericksburg, TX, it is the sole FBO at the Gillespie County Airport (T82) supporting aviators and the local community. Becoming an Avfuel-branded dealer gives Gillespie Air Services access to Avfuel’s top-tier resources, including distinguished training expertise, Avfuel Contract Fuel, and the AVTRIP Rewards Program.
“Attention to detail and reliability are values that are imperative to our business, so the decision to partner with Avfuel was undoubtedly an easy one,” says David Smith, President, who cites investing in the rapidly-growing Fredericksburg area as one of his best business decisions. “Gillespie’s community-centric ethos goes hand-in-hand with Avfuel’s focus on their community of Avfuel branded FBOs.” To ensure top-notch service, Gillespie has covered all its bases. Amenities include professional flight planning services, hangars and rental car service. The airport is also home to general aircraft maintenance, inspection and avionics companies, a hotel, diner and conference facility.
And with such a lively community, there is never a shortage of activities and entertainment. From wine tasting to art galleries and historical museums, Fredericksburg has something for everyone, locals and transients alike. Additionally, the recent boom to the live music scene shows no end in sight, or sound for that matter. Settled by early German immigrants, “the unique culture is part of its draw; a mix of southern charm and German values,” says Smith.
Another part of Gillespie’s draw will likely be its new association with Avfuel Corporation. “The Avfuel sign widely recognized throughout the industry for providing exceptional service and we are confident that Gillespie Air Services will be an asset to the brand. We are delighted to incorporate Gillespie into our exclusive nexus of FBOs and look forward to joining forces in the interest of reaching our common goal of providing an excellent aviation experience for all,” says Mark Haynes, Avfuel’s Vice President Sales.
