We know how hard it can be for FBOs to reach, engage, win, and retain the best owners and operators at their facilities. We’re here to help.
WHO WE ARE
AVIAÂ is the only global Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) for general aviation. Our members work together to bring committed volume to our preferred supplier network, reducing friction costs. AVIAÂ has grown substantially over the last year and are on target to support 500 aircraft globally by the end of 2018, with expected uplift of more than 50M gallons of fuel in 2019.
WHAT WE’RE DOING
At our recent member advisory meeting, our members identified building a preferred FBO network as the biggest priority for the end of 2018. So, we will be soliciting bids for a preferred FBO at every airfield our members frequent.
THE RFP PROCESS
The proposal submission website will open December 3, 2018 and close December 20, 2018. It is expected that the AVIAÂ member advisory council will award contracts on a competitive basis to a single FBO on each airfield. The FBO on each airfield with the best solution for our membership – according to AVIAÂ staff and the AVIAÂ member advisory council – will be selected by the end of 2018. We will notify all proposing FBOs, whether they are selected, disqualified, or otherwise unsuccessful although responsive by January 31, 2019.
