FBO Services Flying Public in Northwest Arkansas
ROGERS, Ark. – Beaver Lake Aviation, a Phillips 66® Aviation branded fixed base operator (FBO) and wholly owned subsidiary of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., recently celebrated its 30-year anniversary. Located at Rogers Executive Airport (KROG), the northwest Arkansas FBO is a destination for corporate businesses and a convenient stopover for cross-country general aviation flights and aircraft traveling to local attractions like the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art or the popular 28,000-acre Beaver Lake located high in the Ozark Mountains.
Beaver Lake Aviation provides a wide array of services and amenities including aircraft deicing, overnight hangar accommodations, Phillips 66 Jet A and Avgas, car and driver arrangements, conference rooms, crew lounges, snooze rooms, an on-site restaurant and car rental. KROG has a 6,011 foot runway and offers on-site fire and rescue services, an air traffic control tower and customs and border protection on the field.
"Our team's top priority is to exceed our customers' expectations," said Linda Jennings, Manager of Beaver Lake Aviation. "Whether pilot or passenger, the needs of our customers and their safety are our top priorities."
When it comes to safety training, Jennings believes that each member of her dedicated team should have a comprehensive understanding of the entire operation. From customer service representatives to flight line technicians, each member of the staff completes the NATA Safety 1st PLST Online training program that Phillips 66 offers to all of its branded FBOs. The FBO also regularly holds safety seminars and safety awareness programs hosted by local Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam or the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
While Beaver Lake Aviation services Walmart's transportation needs, the FBO is also open to the general public. Its facility was built in 2002 and houses a full-size replica of Walmart Founder Sam Walton's first aircraft, an ERCO Ercoupe. The FBO also has various displays located throughout its facility, showcasing significant photographs and relics of importance to Beaver Lake Aviation and the airport.
