Revv Aviation Named FBO Operator at Huron Regional Airport
Huron Regional Airport in Huron, South Dakota is the latest fixed-base operation to become part of the Revv Aviation family.
“We are thrilled to have Revv Aviation in Huron,” said Ted Haeder, CEO and President of the Greater Huron Development Corporation. “It’s a family business that understands small town values, culture and business. Our conversations with Peter Limberger and Guy Lieser centered on the potential developments they envision at the airport and in Huron.

Huron is the Revv family’s seventh FBO and ninth operating site. Others include: Aurora and Schaumburg, Ill. ; Janesville, Wis.; Muscatine, Davenport and Council Bluffs, Iowa. Revv also operates flight schools in Sioux City, Iowa, and at Eppley Airfield in Omaha, Neb.
Guy Lieser, CEO and President of Revv Aviation, sees great value in Huron Airfield. “It has a 7,200ft by 100ft wide runway with a 5,000ft crosswind runway. Huron can handle aircraft of all sizes,” he said.
“We want to bring all of Revv’s services to Huron: maintenance, avionics, flight school and charter. Our PT-6 engine maintenance team already extends to Huron, which is home to over 30 dust collectors that require this type of service. There is also a good market for charter services in Huron, especially during the six-month pheasant hunting season.
Lieser said all employees will be retained by Revv and additional personnel will be added as needed, including mechanics, flight instructors and pilots. “We are here for the long haul and want to create gainful employment and encourage young people to consider the many careers in aviation,” he said.
“As the new FBO tenant, we are encouraged by the warm welcome from the city, the aviation community and Huron employees,” said Peter Limberger, CEO and President of CL Enterprises, Revv’s parent company. “We look forward to many years of cooperation and to being able to contribute to the economic development of the airport, the city and the region.”
“What Revv is doing in the Midwest is unique in that the company wants to revitalize small town airports and encourage people to visit and use their local airline hubs,” said Larry Cooper, director of the Huron Regional Airport. “Revv and CL Enterprises understand the economic vitality that local airports provide to communities, and they plan to build on that.”
