What Our Clients Say
Best FBO ever! I had a 1/2-day mission in Jacksonville, and they treated my lowly Baron as if it was a BBJ! The ramp personnel were very friendly and exceptionally professional – they even loaded my rental car at the aircraft and drove it to the curbside so I would have minimal delay.
Same hospitality and professionalism on departure. These folks really respect my time and help me get things done quickly and safely. I will definitely be back. Great job, Jacksonville Jetport!!!
First time flying into Cecil and I just wish I could have an airport like this close to my home base, the line guys were nice, the tower was patient with my copilot and me LOL and Kristen at the front desk was helpful and courteous…… Definitely will come back here as much as possible!!!
Had to divert to VQQ due to weather and arrived after 9PM with no notice — lineman quickly marshaled us in on a very big, and very dark ramp, and had a rental car pulled around. The next morning they didn’t charge us a facilities fee (would’ve been $15) after hearing we got caught by the fog. Nice folks!
