FORT WORTH, Texas (February 23, 2015) – American Aero FTW, a fixed-base operator (FBO) located at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, Texas, today announced the purchase of 64,000 square feet of additional hangar space and 2.3 acres of land at the airport. The acquisition is part of the FBO’s effort to expand its presence and enhance its ability to offer premiere aircraft services to business aviation customers.

Next month, American Aero will join airport officials in breaking ground on a $17.5 million effort to renovate and remodel the Meacham International Airport terminal building. American Aero will be a primary tenant in the new facility, which is slated for completion in 2016.
