Staff recommends execution of the agreement with Triangle Aviation providing $2,400.00 per month in revenue to the City.
The purpose of this bid is award the rental and management rights to 29 hard surface tie downs to a single Fixed Base Operator (FBO) at the Leesburg International Airport. The term of the agreement will be two years.
A total of 29 tie downs are available for rental on a month to month basis. Previously the sole FBO, Sunair Aviation managed these tie downs. The current agreement between Sunair Aviation and the City has expired. With the recent addition of a second FBO operation, Triangle Aviation, the City decided to accept bids from the two FBO’s for the right to manage all 29 tie downs. The successful FBO retains all fees they collect in the rental of the tie downs in exchange for a monthly fee paid to the City for the rental and management rights. A single FBO will be awarded management rights to all 29 spaces. The spaces will not be split between the two FBO’s.
On August 28, 2007 the Purchasing Division received sealed responses from both Sunair Aviation and Triangle Aviation. The FBO’s offered to pay the City the following monthly amounts for the 29 hard surface tie downs.
Sunair Aviation $ 900.00 per month

Each FBO has been give 8 tie downs at no charge to use in their operations. They can use them for their own aircraft or use them as they see fit to benefit their operation.
