Receiving top marks in the fifth percentile are Avfuel-branded FBOs Pentastar Aviation (KPTK) with the year’s highest score; American Aero FTW (KFTW); and Sheltair Tampa (KTPA). Receiving top marks in the tenth percentile are Avfuel-branded FBOs Banyan Air Service (KFXE); Fargo Jet Center (KFAR); Monterey Jet Center (KMRY); Base Operations at Page Field (KFMY); and Stuart Jet Center (KSUA).

Similarly, more than 40% of the fuel-supplier branded FBOs listed in PRASE’s Best U.S. FBOs list and Best Independent FBOs are members of the Avfuel Network—also the highest percentages for represented fuel brands in this year’s survey. Listed as Best U.S. FBOs are Avfuel-branded Pentastar Aviation (KPTK); Banyan Air Service (KFXE); Million Air Dallas (KADS); Monterey Jet Center (KMRY); Naples Aviation (KAPF); Million Air Hollywood Burbank (KBUR); Vail Valley Jet Center (KEGE); Sheltair Fort Lauderdale (KFLL); and Denver jetCenter (KAPA).
