“We appreciate being recognized as a top FBO for our outstanding commitment and delivery of services to our guests at Base Operations at Page Field,” said Ben Siegel, CPA, C.M., executive director of the Lee County Port Authority. “The Base Operations team always does a great job, but I have never been prouder of the way they have handled themselves and our business during these difficult times.”
The FBO Survey is conducted annually and asks pilots, flight attendants and dispatchers to provide feedback on the level of customer care at individual business and general aviation service providers throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South and Central America and the Caribbean. AIN conducts the survey year-round online and calculated cumulative averages from 2014 to present for this year’s results.
