Rise Aviation began operating out of its new Fixed Base Operator (FBO) terminal at North Texas Regional Airport (NTRA) on August 1, 2022. FBO refers to an airport business which handles private aviation, aircraft passengers and services.
The new multimillion-dollar facility, which is the first of three planned construction phases, welcomes the flying public to a comfortable and spacious passenger lobby with multiple seating areas, refreshment bar, 12-seat conference room, business center, pilot lounge, quiet room, flight-planning area, on-site car rental and 1,750 sq. ft. of tenant suites. The FBO also provides office space for the NTRA airport administration.
Rise Aviation, formerly Lake Texoma Jet Center, also has 67,000 sq ft of hanger space that can accommodate ultra-long-range business jets, along with 25 acres of ramp for aircraft parking. Rise also operates four additional facilities at the airport containing 32,400 sq ft of office and shop space.
The new terminal will be an attractive welcome to Grayson County for many business owners and investors considering expansion, relocation, or new business ventures in Grayson County. North Texas regional Airport (formerly Perrin AFB) is located between the cities of Sherman and Denison, with easy access to Lake Texoma.
