NFS was established in 1960 as a FBO at National Airport located in the North end of Toledo. Basic services included standard FBO services and flight training.
This was the first year they started working on engines. Oddly enough, it was a hot section on a PT-6 engine.
In 1969 they moved to a new location at Toledo Express Airport located in Swanton, Ohio. Services included sales of Beechcraft and Twin Commander aircraft, aircraft maintenance, charter services, and flight training as well as FBO line services.
Opened a full MRO facility in Lakeland, Florida at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport.
