Avfuel expands network on West Coast of America


Five Rivers Aviation FBO

Ann Arbor, Mich. – 18 December 2020 – Avfuel Corporation announces the addition of Five Rivers Aviation to its branded FBO network, connecting flight department customers with an additional premier choice for aviation services on the West Coast.

As the lone FBO at California’s Livermore Municipal Airport, Five Rivers Aviation serves as an ideal alternative to San Francisco Bay Area airports with uncongested airspace for wide-open precision approaches, and uniquely speedy clearances for quick departures. Situated outside the region’s fog belt, aviators utilizing Five Rivers Aviation benefit from Visual Meteorological Conditions when the rest of the Bay Area is overcast. Furthermore, airport management grants waivers for aircraft up to 130,000 lbs for added convenience.

The FBO is constructing facilities suitable for a variety of planes, including Global Express and G650 sized aircraft. As a full-service operation, the Five Rivers Aviation team is on standby to provide comprehensive line service, transient hangar space, AOG maintenance, cargo operations, unbeatable fuel prices, upscale catering, planeside car rental services, secure parking, private boarding, hotel services, crew cars, limousines, hotel shuttles, conference and large meeting rooms, flight planning, a pilot lounge, showers, a quiet room, a theatre room, complimentary golf clubs, concierge services and a luxurious main lobby.

In addition to Bay Area business, this FBO lands guests in close proximity to popular local attractions, including: LEVI’s Stadium, Oakland Coliseum, Oracle Arena, Silicon Valley, San Francisco & East Bay, Livermore Premium Outlets next to the airport, more than 65 local wineries, and beautiful golf courses.

As an Avfuel-branded location, Five Rivers Aviation provides customers with lucrative rewards with AVTRIP and competitive prices with Avfuel Contract Fuel. In addition to contract fuel, customers will benefit from transaction ease when using the Avfuel Pro Card at the FBO with the ability to put everything—fuel and non-fuel items with or without a fuel purchase—on one transaction, avoiding processing fees.

“We’re always searching for new partnerships that offer flight departments quality fuelling options,” said Mark Haynes, vice president of sales for Avfuel. “We are pleased to welcome Five Rivers Aviation to the Avfuel-Branded FBO Network, and are confident that our mutual customers will only receive the best of care from its team. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead through this partnership and look forward to supporting Five Rivers Aviation with proven solutions, from fuelling to card processing and everywhere in between.”

“I’ve always been impressed with the Avfuel family and I’m thrilled to be working with a team committed to growing and developing our FBO. I tell them about the things that keep me up at night, and Avfuel creates solutions,” said Pete Sandhu, owner of Five Rivers Aviation. “Most providers will tell you that no one can move tails to your FBO. Avfuel has already proven that they can and will move tails.”
