Minot Aero Center to change ownership

MINOT, N.D. - After nearly 65 years, the Minot Aero center will be changing ownership.

At today’s committee of the whole meeting, members approved the reassignment of a fixed based operator lease from Minot Aero Center to Avflight Corporation.

Avflight is based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Carl Muhs, the president of Avflight, said this is a great opportunity for Minot to attract customers from around the world.

“The whole idea of text stops, folks coming from across the pond. There's only a few that you can look to in the US that would make good sense for certain people coming from different regions in the world and this is one of them,” said Muhs.

Muhs said they are still in the process of when ownership will officially transfer.
