Sheltair Aviation Services, also known as Sheltair, is a Fort Lauderdale, Florida based Company offering services in FBOs, properties and construction. The company serves aviation communities through their network of fourteen fixed based operations throughout Florida, Georgia, and New York in the United States as well as through their properties and construction division covering twenty airports. The company offers aircraft parking, fueling, cleaning, ground support, passenger and crew services, hangar, ramp and office space options.[1]


Founded as Holland Builders, Inc., in 1963, the company expanded to include a property leasing division, Sheltair Aviation Facilities, in the 1980s in order to manage their growing portfolio of aviation related office space. The concept of Sheltair was derived from the concept, "shelter for aircraft." In 1988, the Company began their venture into the services sector of the General Aviation industry and opened up two FBOs with the construction of the Fort Lauderdale Jet Center and the Daytona Beach Jet Center offering fuel and ground services. As "Jet Center" became a prevalent surname for FBOs across the U.S., the company saw the need to rename this division in the late 1990s – 2000s. The name Sheltair was carried over to the services segment of the business due to the significant amount brand equity in aviation properties. "Sheltair Aviation Services" was used to describe the FBO business and to describe the facilities management and leasing business as "Sheltair Aviation Facilities." Over the next several of years, all three divisions – Sheltair Aviation Services, Sheltair Aviation Facilities and Holland Builders – were in a period of expansion, adding multiple FBO and leasing locations reaching the current total of 16 FBOs, 18 airport properties leasing hangar and office space totaling a presence at 20 airports. Today, the company still remains under the ownership of original founder and CEO, Jerry Holland.
