Welcome to Border Air Ltd. the biggest little FBO around.
Opened by George Coy and Mike Reed, Border Air Ltd. has operated the Franklin County airport since 1994.
Back in the 90’s, with its sister companies Yak West and Gesoco Industries, Border Air Ltd. became synonymous with importation and sales of former Soviet Bloc aircraft most notably the Yak-52.
From 1994 to 2008 Border Air imported over 350 aircraft and became the factory representatives for Aerostar, the manufacturer of the Yak-52 , and MotorStar, the manufacturer of the M14-P radial engine.
In addition to bringing an international flair to the region, Border Air Ltd has shepherded the growth of the Franklin County Airport from a few buildings with a grass parking lot to a full fledged airport double its size with over 90 based aircraft, a bustling flight school, a jump club, and Dan’s daily practice using the over field aerobatics box.
The airport is home to Vermont’s premier Experimental Aviation Association Chapter 613, One of the best voted paint shops in the country: Prestige Aircraft, and our great flight school: Fly Vermont led by chief flight instructor Bob Desmarais.
Border Air Ltd provides service and support to all piston aircraft that can land on a 3000′ x 60′ strip (and even a few that can’t).
We took over for Yak-West in the for supplying domestic parts for the Yak-52.
