Hawthorne Hangar Operations opens FBO at Hawthorne Municipal Airport

Hawthorne Hangar Operations (HHO) has opened its full-service location as an Avfuel-branded FBO at Jack Northrop Field/Hawthorne Municipal Airport (KHHR) in California.

The airport is located near Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Long Beach, meaning customers can avoid busy LAX Airport nearby. HHO offers guests Jet A and Avgas and a range of amenities, including concierge services for every client. The site accepts most forms of payment and the FBO offers self-serve fueling fully staffed with an attendant.

Jim Schulte, Hawthorne Hangar Operations’ general manager, said, “We’ve been a presence on this field for more than seven years in hangar operations, aerial photography and production under our owner’s Dan Wolfe’s umbrella of companies.

“We recognized a need for another FBO on the field and seized the opportunity—it was a natural transition and one we’re excited to execute with the professionalism and safety standards we’ve developed over the years.”

Mark Haynes, Avfuel’s vice president of sales, added, “Hawthorne Hangar Operations is a key location for the Avfuel Network because it’s in the middle of it all.

“They offer everything guests would expect from a big-city FBO without the traffic and hassle you’d expect from an airport like LAX.”
