Heritage Aviation will unveil its new, 79,000- square-foot, eco-friendly Fixed Base Operation (FBO) at the Burlington International Airport (BTV) during a celebration to be held on May 20. The company will offer a full-service facility with 24/7 service. At the event, sister company Heritage Flight will celebrate 25 years of providing charter flight services.

Heritage Aviation caters to transient pilots, their passengers, and aircraft owners. The facility houses a well-appointed lounge,well-equipped gym, game room, media room, as well as flight planning and snooze rooms.

Heritage Aviation’s FBO was designed by TruexCullins, utilizes green technology, eco-friendly material, and is on track to be LEED Silver certified. The facility is partially powered by renewable resources including solar and wind energy generated by solar panels and the nation’s first community scale wind turbine at a general aviation facility. Rainwater is collected and reused, and the building has one of the largest green roofs in all of New England. Additionally, the parking lot was constructed using pervious pavement, a porous substitute for traditional asphalt, which allows water to be absorbed into the ground rather than runoff into storm drains.
