Houston, TX, December 27, 2010

Delks Valley Oil, previously a veteran provider and supplier of aviation fuels and related services announces the formation of Paragon Aviation Group®. This new company will represent a group of first-class independent FBOs and small chains that have the same operational principles; customer-focused service, quality, safety, reliability and value.

Paragon Aviation Group® will deliver tangible benefits to its members through leverage in buying power on FBO services and sharing customer information through state of the art flight tracking software provided by Argus. Each FBO joining PAG goes through a comprehensive audit of facility and services offered to ensure the quality of the member base. A base of core standards have been developed for each FBO to adhere to and maintain to remain in the network.

Benefits to the end user include preferred pricing on products and services at premier locations, centralized resources for more effective decision making, and expanded scopes of service from member companies.
“Paragon Aviation Group® is the next step for successful independent FBOs to take to maximize savings and increase their customer sales,” stated Mike Delk, President of PAG. “The benefits available to our members have only previously been available to those FBOs that have been part of a corporate network, chain or franchise. Our expertise has allowed us to bring these benefits to these first-class independent operators through the formation of Paragon Aviation Group®.”

The PAG gives its member FBOs a stable platform that will promote shared values and objectives. “We have the best independent FBOs in North America in our group. These are companies that are innovative, forward thinking and efficient in their business, but grouped together we see there are some tremendous differentiators, synergies and benefits to be shared and enjoyed.” Delk continued.

Paragon Aviation Group® is owned and operated by Delk’s Valley Oil, a family business comprised of Mike Delk, Megan Delk Barnes and Molly LeBlanc. With their combined industry experience of over 60 years they are bringing an exciting new industry platform for premier aviation service providers.
