Fixed Base Operator
A key element to any successful airport is a first class Fixed Based Operator (FBO). In July 2005, Greenville Aero Services took possession of Building 278 and invested over $25K in renovations and repairs. The FBO has a state-of-the-art flight planning room, pilot’s lounge, break room and a great new lobby. The FBO provides all the necessary mechanical needs to support a wide variety of aviation customers. Finally, Greenville Aero teamed up with Eastern Aviation Fuels to provide top quality fuel delivered through specialized fuel trucks. A Charter Service is available through the FBO. The addition of Greenville Aero to Greenville Mid Delta Airport has restored quality into the airport. Greenville Aero has outstanding customer satisfaction which has had a direct impact on fuel sales and our overall success.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created in the wake of 9/11 to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems while ensuring the freedom of movement for people and commerce. Within a year, TSA assumed responsibility for security at the nation’s airports and deployed a federal workforce to screen all commercial airline passengers and baggage. In March 2003, TSA transitioned from the Department of Transportation to the Department of Homeland Security.
TSA employs a risk-based strategy to secure U.S. transportation systems, working closely with stakeholders in aviation, rail, transit, highway, and pipeline sectors, as well as the partners in the law enforcement and intelligence community. The agency continuously sets the standard for excellence in transportation security through its people, processes, technologies and use of intelligence to drive operations.
TSA is committed to evolving its systems to enhance the safety of the traveling public as well as individual passenger experiences whenever possible.
