Bradley Pacific executive vice president and general manager Shaen Tarter stands on the ramp at the FBO chain's Honolulu facility. Though the stiff trade winds wreak havoc with his hair, they keep the Hawaiian Islands a constant 75 to 85 degrees F year-round. Because it is so temperate, transient aircraft are parked on the ramp at its six Hawaiian FBOs, and only Bradley's Honolulu facility even has a hangar.

Bradley Pacific has become the leading FBO chain in Hawaii, uplifting an astounding one million gallons of jet-A daily to a mix of business jets and airliners. It also has the only Corporate Aircraft Association-preferred FBOs in the state, which puts it in the top echelon of business aviation service facilities.
