In 2017, Michael celebrated his 45th anniversary in the FBO industry. As the Owner of BPS, he heads the firm with its main office in the Denver area.
In 1999, Dye formed an aviation consulting firm, Business Presentation Solutions (“BPS”), based in Aurora, Colorado. In 2003, BPS rolled out the FBOsforSale.com and FBOConsultant.com websites as a means to reach out to FBO and GA business owners and to provide professional services to a wide range to clients both in and outside of the industry.
Dye’s early experience included various management and executive positions with Combs-Gates Denver, Jet Aviation Boston, EJA (now NetJets), and Butler Aviation (now Signature Flight Support). In 1993, his direction changed, and Dye began to focus in on providing specialized professional services for the FBO & General Aviation industry. From 2004 through 2010, Dye owned a Tier 3 FBO in the South/Central US. Now, as a former FBO owner, Michael’s first-hand ownership experience is invaluable to BPS’ clients. Consequently, over the past 25 years, Dye has developed an outstanding resume’ of first-hand experience, with a reputation as an industry expert who is in tune with business owners, managers, and buyers alike.
He serves clients who are in various stages of business development, those who are in the process of selling, and assistance to prospective buyers. He specializes in FBO Sales, FBO Valuations & Offering Documents, Business Plans (for private business owners, airport authorities, and municipalities), Expert Witness services, and Consulting Services. He is an experienced agent that can assist in sales of Part 135, Part 141 (Flight School), and Part 145 (Repair Station) businesses and certificate holders.
As a way to celebrate the completion of 40 years in the FBO and General Aviation industry, in 2012, Michael completed two one-of-a-kind eBooks targeted toward aviation business owners (Sellers) and their potential buyers.
