We are excited to announce that Aero Mark, in partnership with the Idaho Aviation Association, will host the 5th annual Idaho Aviation Expo Friday and Saturday May 15–16, 2015. Once again we will utilize our Aero Mark XL hangar and facility to host this worthy aviation event at a facility where exhibitor booths and aircraft can be under one roof, and at an airport where they belong. This is an all-aviation expo that will feature aircraft manufacturers, maintenance and parts suppliers, avionics, clubs and associations, workshops, guest speakers, and much more.
Saturday's Expo will again feature the Idaho Aviation Association’s Annual Meeting. And Saturday evening's headline speaker will be Idaho native Jon S. Beesley. A graduate of the USAF Test Pilot School, Jon was the Chief Test Pilot for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, and was the first to fly the airplane. He was also a test pilot for the F-22 Raptor, its experimental predecessor the YF-22, and the F-117 Nighthawk. Jon has flown more than 50 different types of aircraft and been awarded top honors. Join us as he recounts his adventures flying the world's most advanced aircraft.
Please head on over to Aero Mark's Facebook page for regular updates. And check back here for attendee information, which will be added soon.

About Aero mark
On June 15, 1984 Aero Mark fueled its first customer, a Western Airlines 737. Now in 2013, Aero Mark is in its 29th year of service. We call our primary facility AMXL; XL for extra large, as it is the largest and finest FBO building in Idaho, and can hangar aircraft up to the size of an MD-80. You don't have to fly an aircraft that big to get our great service. Aero Mark still lacks fees like ramp and facility and keeps its prices very competitive. All the best owner, pilot and passenger amenities are available and Aero Mark's thoroughly trained and experienced line crew will handle service safely and efficiently. Through our affiliates, maintenance, avionics, fixed wing flight training, rentals and charters, and rotorcraft training are all available.
Located in SE Idaho, Aero Mark is a great quick turn or destination stop. Close to Jackson Hole, Sun Valley and Yellowstone Park, we can welcome vacation travelers as well as business and 'just for pleasure' aviators. Whether it's just a fuel stop or being based with us, we will show you real western hospitality.
Welcome to Aero Mark!
About The Red Baron
Aero Mark’s sister FBO, The Red Baron, has a long and distinguished history. Built in the mid 1930s by President Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration, and now on the National Register of Historic Places, it is one of the last all-log hangars left in the country. This unique building was once home to two of the world'’s fastest aircraft. The RB-51, a very highly modified P-51 Mustang, held the world’'s fastest piston powered aircraft title for more than a decade. Also based here was a F-104 Starfighter whose record, the world low level speed record, still stands. Most of the aircraft that visit the Red Baron today are a lot slower, but we’'re still happy to offer them great service, and quality fuel, in this unique building.
