EPIC® Salutes Five Rivers Aviation FBO as It Launches First Phase of Operations at Livermore Municipal Airport (KLVK)

Five Rivers Aviation, Partnering With EPIC Aviation, Assumes Responsibility for the Fuel Concession From the City of Livermore

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - November 17, 2015) - Five Rivers Aviation, a premier, full-service FBO at Livermore Municipal Airport (KLVK) in northern California will formally open its operations on November 20, at the general aviation airport. The first phase of this $5 million project includes 25,000 square feet of hangar space and a 6,000-square-foot FBO complete with pilot and charter support amenities which will completed in December. The new FBO will carry both full and self-serve EPIC branded fuel and accept the EPIC Card for fuel and ancillary purchases.

Dubbed the 'New Gateway to Silicon Valley', Five Rivers Aviation FBO is just minutes from business centers in San Jose, San Francisco and the East Bay. In addition, there are no flight restrictions at Livermore Municipal, an important consideration during limited visibility operations or for large events such as the 2016 Big Game in Levi stadium.

"We provide efficient, superior-quality service and do more than just offer custom hangars and support facilities," said Pete Sandhu, president and CEO of Five Rivers Aviation. We are constructing facilities suitable for a variety of aircraft including, Global Express, BBJ, and G650 sized aircraft. In addition, we offer all the amenities that are expected of a high-end FBO, but with the convenience of a general aviation airport."

"Five Rivers chose EPIC as its fuel partner after an extensive review revealed an outstanding reputation in the industry; especially in terms of safety record, excellent customer service and a long-standing history of providing innovative programs to help FBOs succeed," said Sandhu.

EPIC's Steve McCullough, EPIC senior vice president of general aviation, believes this is a unique opportunity for EPIC to be part of a new facility that is being built from the ground up. "We're looking forward to helping Five Rivers grow their business to become a premier destination for general aviation flying into the San Francisco Bay area," said McCullough.

Five Rivers Aviation will complement the new terminal building and full service restaurant opening next door and another hangar complex being built on the field, all slated to open in 2016
