About Us

Purdue Aviation, LLC is a full service Fixed Base Operation, (FBO). We provide fuel sales, aircraft maintenance, flight training, aircraft rental and aircraft sales. With top-notch services such as these, we strive to meet the needs of all our customers, no matter how unique the request may be.

Our customers may know us as Lafayette Aviation, Inc. In April, 2015 Purdue Aviation, LLC purchased Lafayette Aviation, Inc. from our previous owners Mick and Jeff Pittard. We are excited by the name change to Purdue Aviation, LLC, and want to assure our customer base (previous, current, and new) that we continue to offer the same great service and product. In addition to maintaining our excellent reputation as a full-service FBO, the new owners, McClure Park, LLC/Purdue Research Foundation and Skynight, LLC/Alumnus Scott Niswonger, are committed to supporting the Department of Aviation Technology. The mission of the company has changed a little, but our dedication to customers and employees remains. Our new mission is as follows:

As a for-profit business, the purpose of Purdue Aviation, LLC is twofold: to serve the aviation community by providing the highest quality services and products at all times to its customers and to advance the industry by supporting the School of Aviation & Transportation Technology at Purdue University as they prepare the next generation of aviation leaders.
