Carver Aero have announced it had been selected by the Council Bluffs Airport Authority to be the fixed-base operator for the Council Bluffs Municipal. Simultaneously, an agreement has been reached to acquire Advanced Air from Lisa LaMantia, the long-term owner and operator of the current FBO and flight school at the airfield.
“The Board selected Carver Aero from several other reputable FBO operators to begin negotiations on a long-term relationship at the airfield,” said Andy Biller, Council Bluffs Airport Authority executive director. “Carver plans to make our airport a magnet for our community and for a new breed of customers as well as a trusted, nationally known place for a stop-over and to refuel.”
Also, CBAA anticipates an agreement with Carver Aero because of its proven engagement and commitment to job creation and workforce training. “The board especially likes the company’s established apprenticeship programs in cooperation with community colleges,” said Biller.
“We are thankful for the trust of the Council Bluffs Airport Authority having been selected to help to operate the FBO and to contribute to the growth of the airport and the community,” said Peter Limberger, chairman of Carver Aero, and co-founder and Chairman/CEO of CL Enterprises, the family holding company for Carver Aero.
