Lane Aviation, John Glenn Columbas International Airport/KCMH, Ohio, the second oldest family owned FBO in the United States, recently received the “84 Years in Safe Flying” award from the National Business Aviation Association.To help celebrate 84 years of business, Lane Aviation hosted onsite festivities for tenants, customers and employees with lunch from Mojo Tago, a local food truck vendor. Lane Aviation is also a corporate partner to the National Veterans Memorial and Museum(NVMM)that opened in downtown Columbus in the fall of 2018. Lane’s sponsorship of the NVMM was a natural fit due to its long tenure as the United States government fuel provider at KCMH. As a corporate partner to NVMM, Lane offers complimentary passes to the museum to its customers. It is not unusual to see members of the United States military occupying Lane’s passenger lobby and tagging Lane’s military patch board during their stay. The board currently has 29 patches representing various military units that have visited Lane and is growing by the month.
Steve J. Evans, Lane Aviation Company president, “It really is impressive when you look at how we have grown and expanded from a small flight school started by Ruth and Foster Lane in 1935, to a large six hangar operation covering 140,000 square feet and over 11 acres of ramp space. Any type of aircraft that can land at John Glenn Columbus International,we can ground handle anytime of the day or night and in any kind of weather.”
Lane Aviation is a partner with Phillips 66 and a member of World Fuel Services Air Elite Network
