Revv Aviation is now expanding to Quad Cities International Airport in Moline, Illinois, (MLI) where it will operate a flight school, a maintenance facility and offer charter flights.
Benjamin Leischner, A.A.E., executive director at the Quad Cities International Airport, said, “I’ve been observing Revv over the past two years and this is an ideal company to continue Moline’s legacy of supporting general aviation. Their passion for aviation is evident in everything they do. Revv will pursue aggressive development of our existing general aviation plans on the airfield.”
Guy Lieser, president and CEO of Revv, explains: “Imagine a world where our towns are connected, not just by roads but also by airways. As we introduce aviation to more people across America’s Heartland, we hope to bring the wonder of flight to communities, business leaders, families, schools and city developers. Airports are like the exit ramp on the highway, and if we attract more flights to land at our FBOs (Fixed Base Operators), refuel, and get aircraft maintained, the whole town and region benefit. As a part of the CL Enterprises group of companies we are more than an FBO at the local airport; we are a part of the community and participate, wherever possible, in economic development initiatives.”
To achieve its vision, Revv is striving to attract the very best talent. “Every day at the office is like EAA AirVenture – awe, wonder and soaring planes, and people telling stories,” said Lieser. We are always looking to hire pilots for charter, instructors for the flight school and mechanics and technicians for our maintenance and avionics shops, who share that passion. We also are establishing apprenticeship programs in cooperation with community colleges near our airports, where young high school graduates will be fully trained on the job while also attending college free of cost.”
