Van Nuys, California

Looking to do business in or explore Los Angeles and its surrounding cities?

The Castle & Cooke Aviation location at Van Nuys Airport is a state of the art facility just miles from the heart of the City of Angels. Whether you choose to hold a meeting in our spacious and comfortable conference rooms or venture out for a Dodger’s game, our staff will handle the details. With exceptional customer service from the moment you touchdown, to getting you back in the air hassle-free, it’s no surprise why so many flight departments and pilots keep coming back to VNY for their short term and long term needs.

 

Castle & Cooke Aviation – North & South Lobbies

Our North facility is primarily used for overflow of traffic and/or privacy restrictions for our elite customers. Our North facility is a fully operational FBO, used upon request from our customers, which includes a beautiful lobby/waiting area, reception desk, refreshment center, a flight planning room as well as its own ramp and gate access. Our North facility is located midfield just north of the Van Nuys Airport tower with easy access off the taxiway, directly onto our ramp.

Our South FBO facility is well known to the aviation community, since it was Castle & Cooke Aviation’s first FBO. Our South facility is fully operational, 24/hours a day, 7 days a week and fully staffed. Full FBO services are available, along with shuttle service, rental, hangar and office space. Being our largest FBO with continuous foot traffic on a daily basis, Castle & Cooked aimed to keep its interior aesthetic classic and elegant, full of color, art and history— and our other FBO’s followed suit.

Castle & Cooke Aviation – 7501 VIP Lobby

Our newest development at Castle & Cooke Aviation is our VIP facility. It’s excellent for large groups traveling in and out of Los Angeles, whether it be for business or pleasure. While likely used for aviation purposes, the facility serves many uses even outside the aviation realm such as private parties, hosting networking events, and business meetings. This facility includes a large conference room, reception desk or cocktail bar, fully functional kitchen, industrial refrigerators with kitchen preparatory room, and superb lounging areas for large or small groups. The space also includes its own gate entrance and its own ramp space directly off the taxiway. Seeing as it is not a full service FBO, it provides absolute privacy to any elite customer looking to avoid the busier FBO operations.
