HOUSTON – A fltpln.com Pilot's Choice survey winner two years running, Galaxy FBO (KCXO) has broken ground on a new 25,000 square-foot FBO terminal and 80,000 square feet of hangar space at Lone Star Executive Airport north of Houston.
Galaxy FBO – a Phillips 66® Aviation-branded dealer – will feature a brand new facility with world-class amenities, according to Black Forest Ventures, which recently acquired the FBO. Expected to be in operation by mid-2013, the new Galaxy FBO is designed to meet growing demands for corporate flight in the Northwest Houston and Woodlands areas, which are surging economically despite the national recession.
Designs for the new FBO feature dedicated concierge services, a spacious lounge area, work stations with private meeting rooms and audio/video conferencing, flight planning rooms with WSI pilot weather services, covered parking, a contemporary fast-casual restaurant with a view of the runway, and chef-driven in-flight gourmet catering.
An arrival/departure canopy is being built large enough to accommodate the new Gulfstream G650. In addition to the 80,000 square feet of new hangar space, additional hangars are also planned for the future.
Galaxy FBO offers Phillips 66 Aviation's Partners-Into-Plane contract fuel, in addition to aircraft maintenance, line service by NATA Safety 1st-trained professionals and aircraft sales.
David Christy, Director of FBO Operations, and his wife Nancy, Galaxy's Office Manager, have run the FBO since 2006. Their team's customer service efforts helped the FBO take first place in fltpln.com's ACE FBO awards in its 2012 national survey of pilots.
Lone Star Executive Airport has become a significant reliever airport for North Houston, which is growing faster economically than much of the nation. The Conroe, Texas airport is about 10 miles from The Woodlands and 25 miles north of Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Lone Star Executive is owned and operated by Montgomery County, which recently built a new control tower and added concrete runways to meet the growing demand for corporate flight.
