We Bring General Aviation Airports and Fixed-Base Operators (FBOs) Generations of Expertise in Aircraft Fueling Systems.

Fueling is important. It’s a continual revenue stream. By choosing Argus, owners receive a turnkey, fully designed and fully adapted product that is easy for their staff to operate and maintain.

We specialize in the design of Jet-A facilities and systems, and support Avgas, Mogas and Diesel systems.

Our comprehensive approach goes beyond mechanical engineering. We are laser focused on codes and compliance and partner with our clients on standards development.

Our clients receive a product that is stamped by an in-house PE, meaning our systems are not just deemed acceptable by an engineer, they’re designed by them.

We provide cost-effective fueling systems to best serve each airport's unique needs and facility size. Our designs and specifications ensure that your airport gets a packaged unit that, not only satisfies all code requirements, but is reliable, factors in local site and climate challenges, and is easy for your staff to maintain and troubleshoot.
