Mercy Flight Central Aviation Services is based at the Canandaigua Airport, and while it is currently operating a small lounge from its hangar, it expects to install a temporary terminal with passenger and pilot lounges in the next few weeks, according to MFC president and CEO Jeff Bartkoski.
“A unique aspect of it is that all net income that we generate through the FBO will come right back to our not-for-profit helicopter air ambulance service within this community,” he said.
The FBO is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with after-hours callout available. In addition to offering jet-A and avgas fueling, it provides concierge services, on-site car rentals and crew cars.
Over the past few years, Canandaigua Airport (KIUA) has seen significant advancements, including expanding its runway to 5,500 feet and improving the instrument approaches. With the enhancements, there has been an increase in traffic. KIUA and MFC Aviation Services are working together with the state to build a permanent terminal facility within the next few years.
