FBO Survey

AIN’s FBO Survey asks our reader base to evaluate all FBOs they have visited or had experience with during the prior twelve months. FBOs are evaluated on a scale of 1-10 across five categories: line service, passenger and pilot amenities, facilities and CSRs. The survey is now open for year round feedback at and the results are released in the April issue of Aviation International News.
