Bent Wing Flight Services at Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport is your
Amelia Island Gateway
Awe-inspiring tribute to history combined with a full service FBO for a truly unforgettable travel experience.
Bent Wing Flight Services is an independent and locally owned FBO at Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport (KFHB). We provide the aviation community with a full line of professional services and a first-class travel experience.
We chose to name our business Bent Wing Flight Services in honor of the military history of the airport on Amelia Island. KFHB was built by the U.S. Navy during World War II to train pilots on the F4U Corsair fighter plane. The aircraft’s inverted gull wings were designed to maximize storage on aircraft carriers, and its distinctive look earned it the nickname of the “Bent Wing Bird.”
We also chose to design the building from which we operate as a representation of the F4U Corsair. From the air, the building’s look is evocative of a giant plane. From the land, the building’s “wings” provide cover for a 100+ person observation deck and shade for a parking area. The building’s “cockpit” is a large skylight, filling the atrium lobby with natural light.
“I stopped in for a couple of hours to have lunch with a friend. This was my first visit since Bent Wing has taken over the FBO. My ramp fee was waived with a fuel purchase from the self-service pumps; the line people and front desk person were all courteous and professional. The self-service fuel is a great addition.”
“Stopped in on my way north from WPB. These people are great. This will always be my first stop on my way north.”
“Great service, very friendly. No charge for keeping a 172 overnight with the purchase of reasonably priced fuel. Will certainly be back.”
“Great group of people. Can see a real difference in service from the old crew.”
