CXO’s Original FBO, General Aviation Services
Whether you’re a local aviation professional who regularly uses our runways and services or an out-of-state enthusiast passing through town for the first time, we thought we’d remind everyone what we do here at General Aviation Services Jet Center.
We are YOUR CXO FBO!

- Tow tractor & airplane tugs

- Airframe inspections & aircraft inspections
- Engine removal and installation

Who is behind GAS?
My name is Chad Henrich, and I own General Aviation Services Jet Center. I took over the business roughly two years ago with the hopes of building on what is already the perfect combination of unmatched aviation services and hometown traditions and values.
A little bit about me: I have been an airline pilot for 17 years and currently fly for United Express. I live 15 minutes down the road with my lovely wife and two kids. Anyone who knows me will tell you that’s a good thing because I live and breathe the aviation industry – and I never slow down. I can’t sit for more than 30 seconds because, well, there always has to be something to do or get better at as a business owner.
I grew up in Indiana and went to Purdue University for business management. I have always loved the aviation side of businesses, so when our previous owner decided it was time to retire, I saw GAS as the perfect opportunity to roll up my sleeves and get to work as a business owner in the field I love.
This company continues to grow every year, and I can’t wait to see how the next 15 or 20 years turn out.
Why use General Aviation Services Jet Center?
We know airplanes – inside and out. Over the years we’ve found that even the most experienced pilots need someone they can trust to make sure there are no hiccups during their travels, so we created a service center that really does cover all your needs from A to Z. In this day and age, you can’t put a price tag on having that type of comprehensive partner at your fingertips.
Our services here at General Aviation Services Jet Center run the gamut. We’ve been asked to do everything from perform diagnostics to servicing entire hydraulic and electrical systems. We even offer a pilot lounge and conference room to meet the needs of our corporate customers.
More importantly, we are more personable than a get-in-and-get-out type of service center. Our dedicated staff makes our customers feel welcome and at home. In the main lobby, you will often find lively conversations from flying enthusiasts with stories of old and new over a cup of hot coffee. We take the time to know your name when you walk through our front door.
Yes, we are the little guy in the profession. Yes, we have plenty of competition out there. But the customers who rely on us every single day wouldn’t trust their aircraft needs to anyone else.
