New FBO at Stennis International (MS)

Growing Along The Gulf Coast

Stennis International Airport (HSA), in Bay St. Louis (MS), is in the process of developing and implementing long and short-term plans that address key growth opportunities for the airport. The airport is owned and operated by the Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission. In April 2002, the commission received an independent report outlining the existing operating situation of Stennis International Airport as well as some recommendations for future growth and development. The report recommends that the Port and Harbor Commission "entice and welcome new support oriented businesses to the field to benefit both users and the local economy, and provide the correct environment to build and foster trust and growth of use by the aviation community."

Answering the call...

On the strength of this recommendation, Bill Cotter, the Airport Manager, and Gregory Talbot, President of Mardi Gras Air, began a consultative process last summer that resulted in an agreement with the Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission for Talbot and his firm Mardi Gras Air to establish a new, full-service FBO at Stennis. The new FBO will be offering full service by July 1, 2003. Mardi Gras Air will be a "branded" Phillips 66 aviation fuel service provider.

In speaking on this new FBO, Gregory Talbot stated "We plan to be part of the Stennis International Airport for a long time to come. Our goal at this site is to start from day one with nothing less than a world-class FBO and to grow with the airport. MGA will work collectively with the Bill Cotter and the Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission to meet the growth and potential of tomorrow."

Accordingly, the initial service offering for MGA at Stennis will focus on a completely renovated, purpose developed 10,000 sq. ft. hangar facility plus an adjoining 2,500 sq. ft. of annex/office area for tenant and line support requirements.

Mardi Gras Air (MGA) was formed last Summer, to develop new aviation service support operations in specific, significant, yet under serviced markets.
