Destin, FL – February, 2012 – Destin Jet is planning a birthday celebration for completing three very successful years of operation. Destin Jet will celebrate with a customer appreciation luncheon on April 27, 2012. All customers, friends and prospects are welcome! The event will feature food and beverages throughout the day and in the evening we will host along with Motorfest Magazine the First Annual Destin Air-Sea and Auto Show. All proceeds from the show will go to The Wounded Warriors Project.
“We have exceeded our plans and targets for our first three years,” said Bill Blackford, General Manager. “Our excellent staff has allowed us to reach many lofty achievements. We have filled our hangars; gained a significant market share; and received consistent, positive feedback from our customers on our commitment to quality service. Further, we have been voted in the top 50 of all US FBO’s in FltPlan.com’s annual pilot survey each year since we opened; which indicates the company is providing value to our clients. In addition we have earned the designation of ‘Preferred Provider’ for three of the four major fractional programs.”
Moving from the new FBO on the airport to the dominate FBO is a great milestone. Doing it in three years is a serious accomplishment. Destin Jet is a full service FBO at Destin Executive Airport which opened in April 2009 with an all-new (privately funded) $7 million dollar facility featuring a 6,000 sq. ft. terminal, and 10 storage hangars. They offer a full range of pilot and guest amenities including complimentary gourmet coffee, fresh popped popcorn and home baked cookies, in addition free high-speed internet access throughout and both Hertz and Thrifty rental cars on site.
