Lexington, NC (January 16, 2012) – The Davidson County Airport Authority is offering a new fuel rebate program to tenants at the Davidson County Airport in Lexington, NC. The rebate program is partially based on the tax value of the individual aircraft and the maximum rebate is equal to .0030 of the tax value of the aircraft.
The program will be tracked by the airport’s FBO operator, Fly High Lexington and is based on annual fuel consumption. “Basically the more fuel a base tenant pumps during the year, the higher the rebate” says Karel Van Der Linden, Owner and Director of Fly High Lexington. An aircraft with a tax value of $2 Million for example could get a maximum rebate of $6,000 if it meets the highest level of volume required.
An aircraft owner can achieve a 100% rebate with 12,000 gallons or more pumped during the year and can qualify for a 25% rebate with as little as 3000 gallons. “The goal of this program is to become more competitive in the region in order to attract new corporate customers to the field and to fill the four corporate hangars that are available” said Van Der Linden.
Fly High Lexington serves as FBO (Fixed Base Operator) and Airport Manager for the Davidson County Airport, Lexington, NC. The full service operation includes pilot facilities, catering, crew car, conference room, corporate hangars, maintenance and a flight school. Davidson County Airport features state of the art equipment that includes a newly installed precision instrument landing system, a 5,000 foot runway, 50 T-hangars, 6 corporate hangars, a 12,000 square foot heated community hangar and a 9,000 square foot maintenance hangar. The airport is located in the Piedmont Region of North Carolina and is directly adjacent to Interstate 85, Highway 52 and Business 85.
