FBO Airports: What Are We?
We’re Republic Jet Center, a fixed base operator (FBO) that’s been granted the right by an airport authority to provide private jet facilities and aviation services, such as parking and hangar space and fuel to the General Aviation community.
Republic Jet Center is based at Republic Airport on Long Island, just 30 minutes from New York City.
What We Offer
Different FBOs offer different levels of service and facilities. Here’s why we think our services are a cut above the rest:
We are very close to New York City. Most helicopter trips are only 14 minutes away to New York. Situated at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, Long Island, we’re just 30 miles from Manhattan and close to major road arteries such as the Sunrise Highway and Long Island Expressway. Republic Airport is the perfect option for avoiding congested, delay ridden airports in New Jersey and other locations. We also have hangar space available.
We are also not impacted by the delays and wait times associated with other area airports. Since customs is on the field, we are able to help international flights get in and on their way quickly.
We’re also close to attractive shopping and dining destinations and historical and outdoor attractions.
Anyone looking for an FBO in their desired location should expect and be at the receiving end of high-end facilities for themselves, their passengers, their flight crew, and their aircraft.
Our facilities extend to not only a luxurious lobby in our 90,000 sq ft+ facility, but self-serve drinks and snacks that you can enjoy in our equally elegant lounge with plush seating and tremendous views.
Kick back and relax on one of our comfortable couches and watch the large flatscreen TV until you’re ready to move on. We even have a luxury fireplace for colder winter months.
Concierge service is available to make hotel and dinner reservations and private catering arrangements.
We offer helicopter charters to Manhattan, which is just a 14-minute hop away! You can also check out the Hamptons and beyond. If you prefer to reach your destination by land, our concierge service can also arrange for limousine or car hire if you prefer.
We’ve partnered with Prime Jet LLC to offer our customers a New York Express Package.
If you fly your New York City Gulfstream Charter with Prime Jet into Republic Jet Center at Republic Airport, we throw in a private six-passenger Sikorsky S-76 helicopter transfer to and from downtown Manhattan, saving you $1,900.
If you prefer dry land, we’ll provide Prime Jet customers with a complimentary luxury SUV transfer to the value of $500.
