2 Apr 2013: Twin County Airport is currently going through some upgrades, so please excuse our messes. The construction of our new terminal building is underway in our parking lot area. A small portion of the flight line area between the corporate hangars and old terminal building is closed off. Estimated completion date is mid November 2013. We are continuing our normal operations and are trying to limit any interruptions to operations to a minimum.
Pilots and crews should be aware of vehicular traffic on the flight line and in vicinity of the runway.

FBO OF THE WEEK: TWIN COUNTY AIRPORT (KHLX, HILLSVILLE, VA)
Volume 18, Number 38a
September 17, 2012
Lots of happy pilots in the skies this week. Nominations for an AVweb "FBO of the Week" ribbon soared over the last ten days or so, and picking a stand-out this week was tough. (We cheated and saved a couple of facilities for future installments.)
Amid stiff competition, Twin County Aviation Services at Twin County Airport (KHLX) in Hillsville, Virginia takes home this week's blue ribbon. AVweb reader John A. Jorgensen had that best of all possible experiences of Twin County -- a stopover so pleasant he'd go back just for fun:
Wonderful service and hospitality! I returned yesterday from delivering a DNR aircraft to Sanford, North Carolina for a FLIR installation/integration. On the way, I ran into the remains of Hurricane Isaac, which did not allow me to continue VFR. Scott Thomas, FBO manager, and his crew met me on the ramp, escorted me into their new facility, shared local weather wisdom, entertained me, provided a courtesy car, and simply made me feel welcome. Scott is a banjo player, and he invited me to their Tuesday evening session at the String Bean in Galax! It was a real treat. I stayed in a wonderful cabin along the New River Trail and had a great rest. Next time through, I am sure that I will not hesitate to stop, simply say "hi!" and to enjoy their Virginia hospitality. It provided a real and special treat.
