FEATURE

The TAC
Air FBO facility
features a group of amenities
including controlled access
to private hangars and an
executive terminal.

A 1/5 scale replica of the
Boeing 727-227 N457BN flown
by Braniff Airways hangs
above, decorating the ceiling
space with the livery in mercury
blue and adorned with the
Dallas Cowboys name and silver
helmet featuring the Blue Star.
TAC AIR

maintained what
was there, and
because of that,
Park said they
wound up with something far more
iconic than it would have been if they
had started from the ground-up.
"Our commitment to take the
historical site, clean it up and keep the
past a part of the future of Love Field has
made this project special for us and the
city of Dallas," he said.
The TAC Air FBO facility features a
group of amenities including controlled
access to private hangars and an executive
terminal; convenient access to elevated
catering through The Star Skyline, an
exclusive event center managed by
Legends Hospitality of AT&T Stadium
in Arlington and Yankee Stadium in New
York; on-site dry cleaning; auto detailing;

local event and
venue reservations; autoto-aircraft valet and secured personal
access to retail facilities.
Gibney said they brought the core
team from within the TAC Air network
and filled the remaining roles with local
talent that know and understand the
Dallas market. The teams were sent out
ahead of opening to train within the TAC
Air system with the other FBO locations.
"Upon opening, those same FBOs
sent experts from their teams to support
the Dallas team and help provide great
service expected by our customers," he
said.
Keeping the original cutting edge
building design of William Pereira and
Charles Luckman that embodied the
spirit of f light in the inverted butterf ly
roof architecture, The Gravity Company
and Burns & McDonnell designed the
restoration to meet guidelines and
preservation requirements of the Texas
Historic Commission to keep the
building an aviation landmark of Dallas.
Tad W. Perryman, vice president,
marketing for TAC, said to honor
the restoration of the mid-century
architecture and harken back to the
elegant days of aviation embodied by
Braniff Airways, the modern terminal
building was designed using inspiration
from other mid-century buildings and
décor found throughout Dallas. These
include the white marble and light walnut
rift sawn columns, the glass-topped
marble front counter and the use of

stainless accents to
minimize the design
and celebrate the space and location
overlooking Love Field.
"In the lobby, a 1/5 scale replica of
the Boeing 727-227 N457BN flown by
Braniff Airways hangs above, decorating
the ceiling space with the livery in
mercury blue and adorned with the
Dallas Cowboys name and silver helmet
featuring the Blue Star," he said.
Construction has started on a phase
two of the project, which will bring a
40,000 square foot hangar and office
space to the south side of the Braniff
Centre leasehold in fall 2020. Creating
a FBO that provides class and modern
amenities for businesses and the ones
who run them, while still emphasizing
the pleasure side of travel, is part of the
true reinvention of The Braniff Centre. 
