Joining the Paragon general aviation network are the six Jet Aviation FBOs located at Teterboro Airport in Teterboro, N.J. (TEB); Hanscom Field in Bedford, Mass. (BED); Dallas Love Field in Dallas (DAL); Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, Fla. (PBI); Houston Hobby Airport in Houston (HOU); and St. Louis Downtown Airport in St. Louis (CPS).
Paragon added DuPage Flight Center (KDPA) in Chicago and Henriksen Jet Center (KTME) in Houston to its group of FBOs last February. Paragon audits its operators to ensure quality of facilities and services.
With the addition of six Jet Aviation FBOs, Paragon gains general aviation airport locations in and around New York City, Boston, Dallas, Palm Beach, Houston, and St. Louis to serve business jet travelers flying within the U.S. and to international locations.
Paragon has "several locations in key markets that will give network customers additional options for an elite experience," says Mike Delk, president of the Paragon Aviation group. The Paragon Network is an alliance of independent FBOs that provide an elite experience to general aviation travelers in North America.
Paragon offers its members enhanced business through group networking efforts. Its members go through an audit of facilities and services to ensure they meet Paragon Aviation's standards. Jet Aviation is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, and provides maintenance, completions and refurbishment, engineering, FBO and fuel services, and aircraft management.
