Subscribers to Professional Pilot magazine voted TAC Air the #1 large fixed base operator (FBO) chain for 2011. TAC Air last won the award in 2007.
TAC Air, a division of Truman Arnold Companies, led the field as Best Large FBO Chain. Greg Arnold, President and CEO of Truman Arnold Companies, said “Often when a company expands, they tend to lose some of the personal attention to detail that made them successful. In our case, we are fortunate to have team members in every location of our company who strive to meet the needs of those we serve. We are humbled by this honor and applaud the employees who do their very best each and every day at our 12 locations.”
