Fargo Jet Center (FJC) is putting its best facilities forward.

Fargo Jet Center PictureFJC, the largest aviation service organization in the Upper Midwest, recently completed a major remodeling and expansion project - an upgrade that will enhance both service and appeal.

Fargo Jet Center Picture"Since 1995, Fargo Jet Center has been the front door to Fargo-Moorhead, the first impression of our community for many travelers, and it's been a great one," said FJC President Jim Sweeney. "Now it's even better and more inviting for everyone, from charter flyers and aircraft operators to flight students and maintenance customers."

The goal was to "supercharge" the FJC passenger terminal, said Sweeney, to make it more accommodating to guests, more user-friendly for team members, and the entire facility more efficient for everyone. The expansion added a two-story stone fireplace to the passenger terminal, a pilot's suite with a high-definition television, a flight planning room, a quiet room to relax and refresh, and a conference room with first class amenities. It also increased the size and improved the placement of the customer service area.

One of the Best Gets Better

Fargo Jet Center PictureFJC is consistently ranked among the top FBOs in North America. Aviation International News, in its "2008 FBO Survey, ranked FJC number 42 out of 1,420 FBOs considered. This places FJC in the top 3 percent of facilities in North, South and Central America, the U.S. Territories and the Caribbean.

"It's great to be recognized for excellence that pervades our entire organization," said Sweeney. "The credit really goes to our team, who give every customer the white-glove treatment on a daily basis."

FJC also is a ChevronTexaco fuel dealer, award-winning aircraft maintenance and avionics repair station and aircraft dealer. In addition, FJC operates a fleet of charter aircraft, a flight school, provides aircraft management services and opportunities for fractional aircraft ownership.

History & OverviewFargo Jet Center Picture

Fargo Jet Center's history extends back to the mid-1970s, when owner Patrick Sweeney joined Weather Fargo Jet Center PictureModification, Inc. (WMI), an atmospheric research and cloud seeding company conducting business worldwide. To meet their expanded needs, WMI established its sister company, Fargo Jet Center, Inc. which began serving the region's aviation community in September 1995.
