Houston, TX- May 12, 2011:  

Paragon Aviation Group® announces the addition of Enterprise Jet Center to the network. Located at William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) in Houston, TX, this first class operation is the newest FBO member to the group effective May 1, 2011.

Built in 2006, Enterprise Jet Center has the newest FBO facility on the field along with a 10,000 square foot canopy for arrivals and departures. They are the only FBO to offer this feature at Hobby Airport.

“The Paragon Network™ is great for independent FBOs as it gives us the opportunity for exposure to potential customers in areas that we would not otherwise have,” stated Bobby Courtney, President of Enterprise Jet Center. He continued, “Being a part of the network offers the benefits of an FBO chain, while allowing us to maintain our autonomy to operate our business as we need.”

President of Paragon, Mike Delk said “On a competitive field like Houston Hobby, Paragon can really help open more sales opportunities to Enterprise through the association and utilization of the other FBOs in the network.”  Further saying “We are working very hard to link these FBOs together to strengthen their position not only on their own field, but also as a group so that flight departments can rely on a high quality experience throughout the Paragon Network™.”

On a related note, Courtney explained why they chose to join Paragon saying, “We joined Paragon to become part of an elite network that would not only aid us in gaining customers, but bring additional value to our current customers.  Having the ability to promote other elite FBO operators around North America to our customer base  is an additional value to them, but for us it’s a peace of mind to know they’ll be in good hands.”

Paragon represents a group of first-class independent FBOs and small chains that have the same operational principles; customer-focused service, quality, safety, reliability and value. By delivering tangible benefits to its members through leverage in buying power on FBO services and 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.
