Sheltair BJC: Best New FBO Facility Award

Sheltair team receives AIN’s top-flight award; their BJC base wins as the country’s best new FBO.

2021 started off strong for our hardworking team at Sheltair BJC who received AIN’s Top Flight award for Best New FBO Facility, just three months after their grand opening at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport.

In October 2020, Aviation International News (AIN) announced that it was launching the Top Flight Awards; it stated in the Best New FBO category criteria that the leading aviation publication looked for “something new and unique.” A few weeks later, it released the list of nominees that included some of the most reputable FBOs at the most desired destinations in the United States. This list included our latest FBO addition, Sheltair at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (KBJC), which just hosted its grand opening in September.

Best New FBO Facility.
When building this FBO, our intention wasn’t recognition; it was delivering a product that revolved around pioneering new standards with our customer’s safety and satisfaction in mind. It was breaking ground, and with blueprints in hand, to never lose focus in building with what truly makes us different, core values and philosophies that challenge us time and time again to surpass our previous successes. It just so happens that the end result of this project is an outstanding architectural work of art, one that AIN’s Top Flight Award now recognizes as the Best New FBO facility in the country.

Our Aviation Family has received the prestigious accolade with joy and pride. The development of Sheltair BJC kept many of us working hard until late at night, planning every factor and every detail for who matters most to us, our customer.

So, what can you expect to find at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport today?

The truth is, pictures don’t do justice to what we created in Broomfield, Colorado. Adorned by metamorphic views that are the towering backdrop of our FBO, a massive 162-foot-wide airside canopy welcomes aircraft and passengers by shielding them from all weather conditions. The automatic doors invite guests inside, where beautiful beetle kill pine ceilings, and exposed raw steel give a modern flair to the lobby’s natural elements. In-floor radiant heat and a full-height stone fireplace envelop customers in warmth while enjoying the landscape through the 17-foot-high glass wall panels.

Best New FBO Facility Award!
There is no doubt in our mind that anyone visiting our facility will be mesmerized by the location, building, and beautiful artwork. But beautiful is second to the outstanding services provided by the men and women of Sheltair that create the personalized, sincere, and devoted experience for which we are known for in the world of business and general aviation. We are overwhelmingly honored for winning AIN’s Top Flight Award for Best New FBO Facility. From beginning to end, we knew we wanted to create something spectacular. But not for us. We built this facility for you, our customer! You are the reason for our mission, and without you, we would not be able to do what we love. For this reason, we thank you and dedicate this accolade to every Sheltair user across the United States.
