“South American pilots and charter companies enjoy renting offices here for the convenience it provides,” added Jon Tonko, Banyan’s line service manager. With 15 hangars, and over one million square feet of hangar and office space within an 85-acre complex, Banyan can accommodate their needs for space.
Tenants are in good company in the Banyan complex as there are a wide variety of aviation neighbors all in one location; avionics and maintenance services, aircraft charter and management, flight training schools, aircraft sales companies, aerial photography services, helicopter services, air ambulance companies, corporate flight departments and private aircraft. Over 700 aircraft, including 115 jets and 37 helicopters, make Executive Airport their year-round home.
“In addition, flying into Banyan at FXE is convenient because of less air traffic, no landing fees, no ramp fees, no Customs fee, and no facility fees,” said Tonko. FXE offers a 24-hour FAA air traffic control tower, an instrument landing system, U.S. Customs & Border Protection Service, aircraft rescue and fire-fighting station, police substation and 24-hour contract security.
Banyan’s future plans include adding another 60,000 square feet of hangar space that would be designated for common storage and for charter operations.
In addition to adding hangars, Banyan is updating its security system by adding 26 more cameras to cover the ramp, parking lot, and interior hangars.
