American Aero kicks off ops at FTW
During an opening ceremony, city officials cut the ribbon on a new, 85,000 sq ft administration building on the premises of the 91-year-old airport, where American Aero FTW will be the prime tenant and only FBO. The renovation is the result of a joint investment by the City of Fort Worth and the local FBO operator.
“The city’s commitment to rebuild the terminal and invest in upgrading the airport created the opportunity to partner with the city to make Meacham International a major gateway,” comments American Aero Owner, financier and philanthropist Robert M. Bass.

“This is a proud day for Meacham International Airport, which is now poised for growth as the premier corporate and general aviation facility in North Texas,” added FTW Assisant Director of Aviation & Airport Manager Jeff Kloska.
The new facility offers modern passenger lounges and fully equipped conference rooms. Pilot and crew lounges include a large-screen smart TV, fully reclining seating, work stations, a soundproof sleep room, shower, kitchen, and flight-planning room. A dedicated air concierge team serves both passengers and crew.
In addition to the new facility, American Aero FTW has built three new hangars, more than doubling its hangar space, for a total of 280,000 sq ft of leasable hangar and office space. The FBO also offers 11 acres of open ramp, monitored 24/7, and US Customs services onsite and on the ramp.
American Aero is part of Signature Flight Support’s Select network of FBOs.
