In terms of friendliness of service and amenities offered for the size of airport, hands down I vote for Platinum Aviation Esso in YSB. There may be some big city FBO's that have more stuff, but these guys can't be beat for how hard they try in my opinion!

It would please me greatly if YPM terminal took the win on this one. Someone has to snap a pic of that rats nest so we can get a visual for those who haven't seen it.

post it to the avcanada photo archive, and then link to it using the img tags. just hit the img button once before the url and then once after. If you can't figure it out i'll give you an email to send it to me.

Bay fuel is getting better and better everyday that Alpha Aviation has been operating it. soon to hopefully see a new terminal and many other additions !

What would not qulify them as an FBO? fuel, oil, hangarage, intinerant/transient parking, rental car availability etc etc. Soon to add more and more

endless, I posted it in the albums, just approve it. The pic was taken from a distance, so if you can't read the graffiti it says: "Juvenile Broads" and "@#$! You"

I guess Bay Fuel has grown a little since the last time I was there, I didn't realize that they had all that stuff. I thought it was pretty much just the truck and a small office for the staff.

Pentastar in PTK is hands down the best. If your looking for Candian FBO's Piedmont at YYZ is pretty good

Floats is right, Pentastar in PTK has frikkin electric massage chairs in the pilots lounge.

Esso in yqt and ysb are some of the nicest guys around and esso in ypl also goes the extra mile.

I have to say the gang at YXD Shell. While it is not the largest I have never seen a bunch of people go out of there way for you!
