GFK Flight Support

Grand Forks, North Dakota

After occupying an unexceptional for many years, Grand Forks Flight Support decided to build a new, state-of-the-art, modern Fixed Base Operator (FBO) facility at Grand Forks International Airport. The new facility is the sustainable-designed, five-star flight support center. Services include a 22,500 sf indoor hangar, aircraft maintenance, parking, aircraft rental/charter, full-line services, and flight training.

In addition, the FBO includes many complementary services, such as flight planning, a pilot’s lounge, an observation deck, office spaces, and an executive conference room. The modern lobby area, with an exposed ceiling, is warmed by wood veneered walls and stained concrete floors.

"Throughout the design and construction process, the JLG team worked very closely with us, the engineers, and the contractors to keep the project within our budget and on schedule. Our new facility earned the top design award from the North Dakota Chapter of the American Institute of Architects - a testament to JLG's ability to balance design and budget."
