Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois Airports Now Served
Phillips 66 Aviation rang in 2009 with a number of Midwestern
fixed base operators now offering its branded services.
Butterfly Aviation in Goodland, KS -- the commercial sunflower
production capital of the United States -- is now a Phillips 66
Aviation dealer. The full-service FBO at Goodland's Renner Field
serves an area that is the primary retail trade center for an
agricultural region that stretches across eastern Colorado from
northwest Kansas to southern Nebraska. Butterfly offers aviators a
variety of services including fuel, maintenance, courtesy/rental
cars and a restaurant on the field. Marketer City Service Valcon
provides Butterfly's fuel supply.
Otis Air Service of Kearney, NE is also now part of the Phillips
66 Aviation network. The sole FBO serving Kearney Regional Airport,
Otis Air features National Air Transportation Association (NATA)
Safety First trained and certified line technicians. The FBO prides
itself on quick turnaround and what they call "red carpet" customer
Another Nebraska FBO, Sioux Air Inc., has joined the Phillips 66
brand serving Martin Field in South Sioux City. Pilots landing at
Sioux Air are following in the footsteps of Meriwether Lewis and
William Clark, who stopped in the area back in 1804 after they
crossed the Missouri River. Sapp Brothers Petroleum is the Phillips
66 fuel marketer for Sioux Air.
Tate Aviation and TDB Aviation in Illinois are now serving
pilots as Phillips 66 Aviation dealers. Tate Aviation is the sole
FBO for the Southern Illinois Airport in Murphysboro, famous for
the Tower Rock formation in the nearby Mississippi River. The
airport has a 6,500-foot runway.
TDB Aviation serves Olney–Noble Airport in a city that
once claimed to be the oil capital of the world. Noble was settled
in 1818. Marketer Superior Fuels handles supply for the FBOs.
More than 616 FBOs are now part of a brand legacy that began 81
years ago during the general aviation's genesis.
