Kansas airport transitions FBO operator to P&N

Kansas Great Bend Municipal Airport has announced a change in the operation of its sole FBO as part of a transition to the new operation from Centerline Aviation to P&N Flight and Charter, the company said.

On August 1, the ownership behind Iowa-based P&N Flight and Charter begins the transition from Centerline Aviation, which served notice six months ago that it would decline to renew its lease.

P&N operates three FBOs in Iowa and will inherit a 3,000-sq-ft terminal built in 1965 that also houses the airport offices. Additionally, the facility includes a WWII-vintage 19,500-sq-ft hangar with a door height of 17 feet, which allows it to shelter light to midsize business jets, and a smaller maintenance hangar.

P&N said it will work toward obtaining FAA Part 145 repair certification for the location. Other improvements will include a refurbishment of the terminal.
