Business Plans for Airports, Municipalities, & Economic Development



In today’s economic climate, more and more Airport Managers are seeking a path toward “self-sufficiency”. This includes a quest for logical, common-sense ways in which the process of updating their Airport’s Business Plan can integrate General Aviation service providers and facility developers into the long-term development process. The Airport Business Planning process is typically part of the service package provided by the Airport’s outside, contract engineering firm.

While many airport engineering firms do not offer the unique level of expertise that is needed to ensure that the FBO and General Aviation sector is properly integrated into the Airport’s Business Development Plan; at FBOConsultant.com….. We Can Help.

Along with our strategic partners at Armstrong Consultants, Inc., our combined team of professionals have extensive experience with Airport Assessment and Airport Business Plan development which includes the private sector of FBOs, General Aviation service providers, and facility developers.

Our Airport Business Plans are designed to accommodate:

  • Airport Authorities who are updating their Airport’s business development plan.
  • Municipalities who are interested in studying Airport self-sufficiency.
  • Economic Development entities who are interested in assessing third-party development for hangars, warehousing, and other facilities.
  • FBOs and other General Aviation Service Providers who are interested in responding to Airport RFPs or other municipal requests.
  • Facility Developers who are interested in promoting their expertise and interest.

As part of our Airport Business Plan process, we integrate several key dynamics into the process. These may include:

  • An extensive assessment of historic, current, and projected needs for a wide range of FBO and General Aviation services.
  • A review of the subject’s competitive influences including regional airports, General Aviation statistics, and FBO/GA competitors.
  • Meetings, interviews, and/or surveys which focus on the demands of the General Aviation community.
  • Demand for hangar, office, warehouse, and other airport-related facilities.

Our final product is a comprehensive, common-sense, document that is tailored to the client’s location, demand, and individual needs.
