Ryan Airplane Company is headed in a new direction. We are taking to the road. At the end of October 2015 we will be closing the FBO (Fixed Base Operation) and we will no longer provide any service except maintenance and restoration (we will continue our dedication to free coffee when and where possible). The company will no longer be based at Avery County Airport (7A8). This will allow more travel and a greater accessibility for those customers that are unable to land at Avery County airport. By adding the ability to travel for long term projects we hope that we will be able to assist a broader customer base providing them with accessibility to a higher standard of aircraft maintenance and restoration services. We will miss our regular FBO customers and want to thank you all for supporting the FBO over the last eight and a half years. Blue Skies and keep the gauges in the green.
