Dinwiddie County Airport Announces FBO Name Change
Dinwiddie County Airport is excited that last month the board voted to rebrand the FBO.
We are pleased to announce that the FBO will be named “Tri-Cities Executive Terminal”. The primary purpose for the name change is to let our surrounding neighbors know that we do not just serve
Dinwiddie. Our service area includes Petersburg, Hopewell, and Colonial Heights.
Other than the name change, all services remain the same. The Dinwiddie County Airport has always served the needs of both the general aviation community and the corporate executive branch the industry.
Dinwiddie FBO will continue to offer all the services that your clients have come to expect. Car rentals, upon request, are available and delivered to our facility and will be on the ramp when you touch down.
Some of the amenities include hot coffee, ice, snacks, restroom facilities, and free WIFI to the internet. Our pilot lounge allows you privacy with a TV, beds, and workspace. We will accommodate the needs of your clients and staff and ensure that they receive red-carpet treatment.
