Ribbon cutting

The Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce (RFCC) Bay Blazers and staff were joined by guests recently to celebrate a ribbon cutting for ACTS Aviation, located at 421 John D. Wendell Road.

ACTS Aviation is a faith based, family operated company, FAA Part 61 flight school operating out of the Aransas County Airport. ACTS Aviation is currently offering instruction for private pilot, instrument, and commercial ratings in their fleet of Piper Aircraft. In addition, ACTS Aviation is helping rebuild the airport by developing a new set of T-Hangars that will provide a space for the office, classrooms, airplanes and other privately owned airplanes from the community.

ACTS Aviation opened their doors in May 2019. Since then, they have graduated 10 new pilots, instructors have “solo” more than 30 students, and there are currently more than 40 active students currently taking lessons from the Coastal Bend.

ACTS Aviation is looking to expand their fleet of airplanes, along with becoming certified for other local aviation services like Rockport Aerial Tours and Private Charter Flights. ACTS Aviation is opening the first “Fly-In Airbnb” in the beginning of 2021 out of their newly acquired Box Hangar off Hwy 35 N.
