Modern Aviation has completed its acquisition of the Elliott Aviation FBO assets and operations at Iowa’s Des Moines International Airport, bringing Modern’s FBO network to 13 locations in the U.S. and its territories. Elliott will continue to operate a maintenance, repair, and overhaul business at the airfield.

The Des Moines FBO, which marks Modern’s first location in the Midwest, operates on a 17-acre leasehold and includes an 8,700-sq-ft passenger terminal with conference rooms, workstations, sleep rooms, lounge areas, and crew cars. In addition, there is a 145,000-sq-ft heated hangar and 20,000 sq ft of office space.

“We are very excited about our new operation in Des Moines,” said Modern Aviation CEO Mark Carmen. “Elliott Aviation has a long history of providing outstanding customer service to its customers through its highly experienced and long-tenured employees, all of whom have joined Modern.”

According to Elliott Aviation president Greg Sahr, divesting the FBO will allow the company “to focus our efforts and investment on growing our MRO business across our geographic footprint.”
