B. Coleman Aviation, a full service fixed base operator (FBO) based at the Gary/Chicago International Airport (GYY), has joined the Signature Select affiliate program.
B. Coleman is comprised of approximately 95,000 square feet of FBO and hangar facilities. The most recently opened 40,000 sqft hangar offers a large, 28 foot door and can house four large-cabin aircraft along with eight midsize to small body aircraft. The facility is equipped with 24-hour video surveillance and world-class accommodations for both passengers and pilots including a pilot’s theater/lounge with a 105 inch projection screen with surround sound, a fitness room and shower facilities. Fully equipped and wired conference and training rooms round out the facility’s amenities.
B. Coleman Aviation’s proximity to Chicago makes it a convenient alternative for aircraft transiting the Chicagoland metro area; B. Coleman is only a 25 minute drive to downtown Chicago. B. Coleman Aviation is also one of the area’s only certified DCA Gateway approved departure FBOs.
