FBO of the Week - Cutter Aviation/Bob Hoover Jet Center

Only in California can you have a brand new, yet vastly experienced FBO. Cutter Aviation/Bob Hoover Jet Center, founded in 1928 by William Cutter, just opened their newest facility in Van Nuys (VNY) in July.

I spoke with manager Tom Magglos, a veteran ATP rated corporate pilot with five years of FBO management experience, about what makes this facility special. "I believe that the combination of the decades of experience of Cutter Aviation, plus the involvement of aviation pioneer Bob Hoover speaks volumes about what to expect!" In addition, Magglos was proud to be the Piper sales and HondaJet sales and service centers for the region (forthcoming).

FBO of the Week – Yellowstone Jet Center (BZN)

When you think of the popular attractions in the Northwest,Yellowstone National Park will probably appear near the top of your "must see" list. And if you’re a pilot, one of the best places to start is Yellowstone Jet Center in Belgrade, Montana.

Yellowstone Jet Center, since 2000, has been a destination for travelers seeking Grand Teton and Glacier national parks as well, as well as the Club at Spanish Peaks and the resorts in Big Sky. Named a top 40 FBO by AIN for many years, it’s also a great outlet for golfers, skiers, hunters and fisherman alike to begin their trek.

FBO of the Week – Metro Aviation Service (OLV)

One of the fastest growing areas in the United States is the East Memphis area of Tennessee; and at the forefront of that growth is Metro Aviation Service in Olive Branch, Mississippi. Pilots venture there for the quick turnaround and convenience offered for those either passing through, or travelling to see the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June.

Metro Aviation General Manager David Taylor is most proud of his FBO’s fuel prices, which he keeps more than competitive with the largest airports in the area. "We keep it reasonable and honest, and there’s no reason to look elsewhere!"

FBO of the Week - Sky Bright in Gilford, New Hampshire (LCI)

If you’re looking for a summertime retreat, you might consider starting at Sky Bright at Gilford, NH and the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee . If the name of the lake is familiar, it may be because it was featured in movies such as On Golden Pond and What About Bob? Gilford is also home of the Gunstock Mountain Resort – while typically best known for winter skiing, it offers ziplines and treetop adventure courses in the warmer months.

Lee Avery, manager at Sky Bright, mentioned that what sets them apart is "keeping customer service at its highest level." They strive for that "Wow Factor" that can only be achieved by making sure every detail is taken care of!
