Paragon Aviation Group® announces the addition of Texas Jet to the network. Located at Meacham Airport (FTW) in Fort Worth, TX, this first class operation is the newest FBO member to the group effective May 1, 2011.

“Joining the Paragon Network™ of premier independent FBOs will give Texas Jet another competitive advantage in our head to head battle with a large FBO chain,” said Reed Pigman, Founder and President of Texas Jet. He further commented, “This will translate into more customers and more money to our bottom line.” 

With over 35 years of aviation experience Pigman commented on the Paragon program stating, “Independent FBO owners and their customers are going to love this.”
