Douglas Wilson

Doug Wilson is the President and Founder of FBO Partners, LLC, an aviation consulting firm to Fixed Base Operations. Prior to forming FBO Partners, Wilson was the Director of Business Development and Marketing at Galvin Flying Services. Though his role included the management of one of the largest independent FBOs in the country, his strengths in leasing, and related contract negotiation led to managing Galvin’s then 150,000 square feet of hangars to effective capacity through both the turbulent recession and a major hangar construction project in 2012. In short, his departments comprised sales in excess of $25M annually- some two-thirds of all revenue generated by Galvin’s total business.

Prior to joining Galvin in 2006, Wilson worked for Signature Flight Support, the world’s largest network of Fixed Base Operations. During his seven years with Signature, Mr. Wilson held various positions including Corporate Training Manager, in which he was responsible for the development, implementation and delivery of training curriculum for the company at all US and European FBO locations. He also held roles as the Operations Manager for Milwaukee, WI, Corporate Customer Relations Manager, and a Regional Service Trainer, to name a few.

Prior to joining Signature Flight Support, Wilson worked for the Williamsburg-Jamestown Airport for more than seven years- a small privately owned public use airport in Virginia.
Mr. Wilson is an active pilot with airplane, seaplane, glider and helicopter ratings.

In addition, he is a freelance aviation writer for various publications, and an aviation consultant to local news outlets, providing technical understanding of various aviation issues to reporters.
