Maverick Air Center partners with Charter First


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Maverick Air Center (KFSD) has finished construction on a 30,000-square-foot hangar, gained an additional 50,000 gallons of Jet A fuel storage and acquired additional hangar space near the east cargo ramp at KFSD. The additional space has allowed Maverick Air Center to offer aircraft charters and maintenance through its new partner, Charter First.

Charter First, a Marshall, Minnesota, charter-based operator, would normally reposition its aircraft from MML in Marshall to KFSD in Sioux Falls but is now able to base three aircraft on the field and will specialize in King Air and Cessna Citation maintenance.

Maverick, which was acquired by Sanford Frontiers in 2015, recently celebrated five years in business.
