Lynx FBO Network Acquires Two New Locations

Operations In Minneapolis Welcomed Into The Group

The Sterling Group, a middle market private equity firm based in Houston, Texas, has announced that its platform company, Lynx FBO Network, has completed two acquisitions at Anoka County-Blaine Airport serving the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area, with prime access to US Bank Stadium and downtown Minneapolis. Lynx simultaneously acquired both Cirrus Flight Operations and Key Air Twin Cities. "We look forward to bringing the Lynx level of service and our extensive FBO expertise to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area," said Chad Farischon, a Partner with Lynx.

In August 2016, Sterling launched Lynx, a buy-and-build effort in the FBO industry, and is executing a plan to build a leading FBO network providing general aviation services. The Cirrus and Key locations at Anoka mark the third and fourth acquisitions for Lynx during the first four months of operations. 

"Key Air Twin Cities has developed world class FBO terminal and hangar facilities, a state of the art fuel farm, and a large ramp capable of handling significant aircraft activity in a safe and efficient manner. Those attributes combined with the Lynx team's experience in handling special events, the ease of access to US Bank stadium, and a group of talented employees joining our team from both Cirrus and Key make Lynx the optimal location to serve our customers during the 2018 Super Bowl," stated Tyson Goetz, a Partner with Lynx. 

Sterling has assembled a strong and experienced team to build the new network. Greg Elliott, a Partner at The Sterling Group, has been involved in building several FBO networks in the past fifteen years, including roles as the Chairman of Encore and Trajen, and Board member of Landmark Aviation. Chad Farischon and Tyson Goetz are former members of both the Trajen, Atlantic Aviation, and Landmark Aviation management teams and have purchased and integrated over 50 FBOs over the course of their careers. The pipeline for further acquisitions remains strong.

"Anoka County is an excellent addition to our rapidly growing network," said Greg Elliott. Lynx currently operates locations near Destin, Florida, Portland, Oregon and now Minneapolis, Minnesota. Lynx and Sterling are actively seeking acquisitions in North America.
