LEWISTOWN, MT/November 01, 2011/ GENERAL AVIATION NEWS /Newton Aviation has joined the Avfuel family of branded FBOs to offer Avfuel Contract Fuel, AVTRIP rewards, and other products and services. Based at the Lewistown Airport (LWT) in Lewistown, MT, Newton Aviation brings a unique location to the Avfuel network.
“You visit bigger cities and everything looks generic,” said Bobetta Newton, co-owner of Newton Aviation along with her husband, Donald Newton. “There’s nothing generic about Lewistown – and there’s nothing generic about our FBO.”
Newton Aviation exemplifies small-town hospitality. “Our staff is naturally sincere and always ready and willing to help customers,” said Bobetta, who manages the day-to-day office and customer operations. “Our friendly and helpful service brings people back to us every time.” Indeed, Newton Aviation’s staff is always ready to assist visitors with whatever needs they may have, from aircraft services to finding available lodging (often at discounted rates). “Pilots aren’t used to the level of personal service they receive from us,” Bobetta said. “We always work to exceed their expectations.”
A pilot himself, Donald Newton is quick to recognize Newton Aviation and Lewistown Airport’s appeal from that perspective: “As a former military base, we have a longer runway than other airports in the area,” he said. “The runway length and condition combined with recent improvements to our ramp enable us to tend to a variety of large and small aircraft.”
“Newton Aviation’s commitment to the customer experience and continuous evaluation of their facilities, products and services to best serve their guests is entirely in line with Avfuel’s philosophy,” said Avfuel Director of Marketing Marci Ammerman. “We’re thrilled that branding with us is part of their vision.”
“We’re very happy to be on board with Avfuel,” said Donald. “Avfuel is always available for support and training – they’re easily accessible. We not only get the benefits of that support and training, but also the benefits of established programs like AVTRIP. It’s a good fit.”
Located under the big sky of central Montana, Lewistown is an outdoorsman’s paradise and has been nationally recognized by Cabela’s as one of the nation’s top spots to hunt and fish. Unique hunting opportunities include big horn sheep, bear, elk and mountain goats. The rugged landscape gives way to a vibrant, if small, town boasting an eclectic mix of lodging and dining options, including the recently restored historic Calvert Hotel. “Lewistown is a fairly remote, undiscovered town,” said Bobetta, “but it’s a cool town.”
