About Cutter Aviation
Founded in 1928, Cutter Aviation is America's oldest continually family-owned FBO and aviation service company. Cutter Aviation operates at eight major airports in the Southwestern United States. Cutter locations in Arizona (Deer Valley and Phoenix Sky Harbor), New Mexico (Albuquerque), Texas (Dallas-Addison, and San Antonio) and Colorado (Colorado Springs) provide a wide range of services to transient and based aircraft including fuel and FBO service, maintenance, avionics, new and pre-owned aircraft sales and charter and aircraft management.

The Phoenix, facility is a full-service, fixed-base operations, with Albuquerque and Colorado Springs providing line services for transient aircraft. San Antonio and Dallas-Addison provide new and pre-owned aircraft sales as well as maintenance.

Looking Back
Continuously family-owned for eight decades, the company originated as Cutter Flying Service Inc., in Albuquerque. William P. Cutter envisioned a business that would serve the fledgling aviation community - and the resulting enterprise exceeded his expectations. The company survived the Great Depression, and, at the outbreak of World War II, became major pilot training facility for the military. In 1947, the company began its long-standing affiliation with Beech Aircraft Corporation. Since that time, the Cutter name became, and continues to be, synonymous with major and emerging aircraft brands ranging from piston singles to light and medium turbine aircraft.

Looking Ahead
Over the years, Cutter has maintained a position of leadership in the general aviation community by consistently expanding its services and its locations. Cutter Aviation, Inc., opened its Phoenix operation in 1959. The Deer Valley facility opened in 1997, San Antonio in 1998, Colorado Springs in 2006 and Dallas-Addison in 2013. Cutter remains strong due to an unwavering commitment to customer service, customer and employee satisfaction, and business practices rooted in our core values of respect, trust and integrity.

Company President Will Cutter reinforces this: "These are key ingredients to a formula that has kept us at the forefront of the industry. They have helped us establish a reputation that we are all proud of. Our values have served us well for eighty years, and without them, Cutter would be just another run-of-the-mill service station for airplanes."

  Stopped for Balloon Fiesta. Very helpful crew. Had my bags, took me to a local hotel, gave my 4-year-old son a wooden airplane and some goodies (after asking me if it was ok), which made his day. The whole experience was very easy, quick and painless. Definitely going back next year.
From Ed Cole on 19-Sep-2017

  Brought my Twin Commander in twice this month for one night layovers and fueling. As always, the Cutter folks were fantastic. Excellent service and friendly, helpful attitudes made the stops easy and enjoyable. I'll be back!
From Adam Broome on 12-Jul-2017

  My family stopped at Cutter Aviation in Albuquerque a couple of times this past week while traveling in our A36 Bonanza. I had also stopped there in my Bonanza a year ago while on the last legs of an around the world trip. What an outstanding FBO! On every occasion, all of the staff -- without exception -- have been welcoming, friendly and helpful in every way. This is a first-rate operation. I've found none better.
From Robert McMeekin on 26-Jun-2017

  Consistently outstanding service in every way! Called ahead, Alexandra provided info about fees, hangar, and transportation. Met by "follow-me" truck on arrival. Jeff & Seth got us parked and helped with bags. Leo arranged hotel/transportation. Jeff drove us to hotel. Next morning plane was pulled from hangar & fueled on time. Kerrie helped with loading. Remember Jeff & Kerrie from previous trips. Outstanding people made everything about visit go smoothly. Thank you!
From Steve Trieber on 25-Jun-2017

  Enroute from KCGZ to KEPM we had emergency landing at KABQ due to an extremely strong odor of fuel in the cabin. I cannot say enough good things about the way the emergency was handled by ATC, the staff at Cutter, airport fire department and airport operations manager. They were extremely helpful, courteous & professional. Everyone went beyond what was expected to help us out. The aircraft was cleaned up, repaired and in 2 hours we were on our way to KEPM. Kudos to ATC, the entire staff at Cutter, KABQ fire & the KABQ operations manager.
From Brock Benjamin on 18-May-2017

  I come here frequently and truly enjoy Cutter. They are reasonably priced, and provide probably the nicest service that I receive anywhere. One thing that isn't real important but provides a nice experience is that even when arriving in a BE-36 you get parked out front and they will move the plane, even when the ramp is full of jets. The important part of this point is not that I truly care about walking across a ramp (I'm a self serve 99% of the time person) its that they don't give me the -kick you to the curb feeling that you get at a lot of other FBOs. Thanks Leo keep up the good work.
From Thomas Lissner on 19-Mar-2017

  Absolutely the finest fuel stop for a quick turn when going west! We utilize Cutter monthly for refueling and there's no other FBO in the nation to compete with the speed and professionalism of these folks. Never have I spent over 20 mins on their ramp, the Jet truck is waiting when we taxi in and 3-4 line guys get the job done before we can even go to the bathroom. Fantastic.
From C Smith ATP CJ 525 on 14-Mar-2017

  My family has been in the FBO business approximately 40 yrs. And this is the way one should be run! Cutter and its employees run a first class operation, both on the ramp and inside the building. First rate! Highly recommend.
From Brock Benjamin on 20-Dec-2016

  Cutter ABQ is my favorite FBO. Whenever I go to ABQ I know it will painless and welcoming. From pulling you right up to the door. Having the car brought out to the plane and all of the other little things, they make it always pleasant to visit. Not to mention 100LL is reasonably priced. -brock
From Vernon Gatlin on 21-Nov-2016

  Jim at Cutter made phone calls for me after my girlfriend called him saying I'd be landing at 8PM. I arrived. HE HAD 2 Motel options waiting for me! Smoking at that! I went to restroom, came right out to van, and was driven to Nice Motel nearby with special rates for Cutter! Who does all that?? I tipped but a tip is not enough! THIS IS WHY I ALWAYS GO TO CUTTER!
From Ed Cole on 18-Sep-2016

  Great service, as always, at Cutter! Quick refueling, helped with bags to and from aircraft, and provide transportation to and from hotel. I'll be back!
From Robert Barnwell on 14-Jul-2016

  Flew in with grandkids, wife & friends for lunch and semi-quick turn in Twin Commander 1000. Linemen were very accommodating. Front desk was terrific. This place is all any FBO can be. Thanks! I'll be back.
From Shari Meyer on 29-Jun-2016

  Excellent service for a quick turn. Called Cutter 2 hours before I arrived and they were able to have some sandwiches waiting for me. Line and desk personnel were all attentive and professional.
From Tom Gresham on 28-Jun-2016

  Always good service at Cutter. The rental car was at the plane before I could climb down from the wing! When we returned, we had a minor mechanical issue. It was Saturday, with no mechanics on duty, but the front desk at Cutter found someone, and in 30 minutes, we were on our way.
From D. Valerio on 14-Jun-2016

  We stopped in ABQ to visit family for several days. The staff at Cutter took excellent care of us. We parked in front of the FBO, and after we unloaded the plane, the staff moved the plane to refuel and store it. There is a nice observation area for people meeting incoming flights with tea, lemonade, coffee and water available. Though we didn't use it, there was a nice pilot's lounge and a separate area with several computers available for checking weather, etc. Midway through our trip we changed our plans and decided to stay an extra night, this was no problem. For our departure, we called about a half an hour prior to arriving at the airport, and they had our plane in front of the FBO waiting for us when we arrived. They made sure we had everything we needed to depart, including a couple bottles of water. This operation is first rate, and we were treated like gold. Thank you!
From Evan Baas on 24-Feb-2016

  Arrived in my humble Warrior on Feb 11 and they marshaled me right in front of the door and left it parked there 2 hours while we had lunch with a niece! Made little old me feel quite welcome!
From Robert McMeekin on 02-Dec-2015

  Stopped again 11/30/15 on way eastbound. Really nice folks here at Cutter take care of everything. Called as we taxied in. Jeff met us with follow-me, got us parked, helped with bags and put plane in hangar. Jim, Chantel and Jocelin helped with hotel, and Jim gave us ride to hotel. Plane was pulled out and ready up front, fueled and bags out to plane in the morning thanks to Kerrie and Elizabeth. We look forward to this stop and will be back.
From Robert McMeekin on 25-Nov-2015

  Stopped for night 11/19/15. Met by follow-me truck. 2 line guys offered to help with bags. CSRs offered help with hotel reservation and courtesy transportation. Aircraft fueled and up front ready to go on time next morning. Thank you Grant, Elizabeth, Kerrie who made everything about this stop first class. We'll be back.
From A. Aldrich on 14-Oct-2015

  We recently spent a week operating in and out of Cutter Aviation ABQ in a WWII bomber. The entire staff, from the ramp crew to the desk staff, went above and beyond to help us! They were attentive, polite, prompt and professional. Cutter ABQ is by far one of the top FBOs we have ever had the pleasure of visiting! We look forward to stopping over again in the future!
From Howard Quoyeser on 08-Oct-2015

  From the front desk, line crew and management Cutter Aviation rolled out the red carpet for our 5 day stay. The best customer service and support we've experienced in a very long time. Thank you Cutter Aviation!
From Donald Thompson on 19-Aug-2015

  Great FBO! Have used several times since May for fuel. They have it down right. Nice FBO facilities too.
From Chris Curran on 19-Aug-2015

  The line service was excellent. From help with the bags to the cars to the little things, I was glad to have Matt and his team there for professional, attentive help.
From David L. Couch on 28-Jun-2015

  I flew into KABQ last week in a light twin, stayed a couple nights, and had first class service from all. Jessi and Crew are always some of the best in the business. If you stop in KABQ, stop at Cutter!
From Martin Pauly on 22-Jun-2015

  I stayed with Cutter overnight last week. When I had asked on BeechTalk.Com which FBO to use at KABQ, the unanimous feedback was "Cutter". Now I understand why. Quick, friendly service, trying to help in any possible way. Got 20 lbs of free ice for my B-Kool on the morning of departure. I'll be back at KABQ this weekend and will use Cutter again.
From John Ariko on 10-Jun-2015

  Just stopped at KABQ overnight, and the experience with Cutter Aviation was excellent. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Will use them again.
From Robert Beverly on 16-May-2015

  I echo all the superlatives commented by other pilots. Chantel went far beyond the call of duty to make local arrangements including loaning one of their offices for an important meeting. Cutter is a truly first-class operation.
From Peter Tracy on 03-May-2015

  My experience with Cutter at KABQ has been consistently excellent. I stopped last week in my Bonanza going from California to Oklahoma, and stopped again coming back. Everyone was friendly and helpful from the counter staff to line staff. They give a 25-cent discount on fuel prices with an AOPA card and waived all fees, including overnight fee, because of my fuel purchase. Super friendly, helpful and easy to deal with. Give Cutter a try.
From Randy Lervold on 18-Apr-2015

  I needed to overnight at ABQ on a cross-country flight in my Carbon Cub and a friend suggested that I use Cutter (typical word of mouth recommendation). Wow, I'm glad I did! Everyone there from the line guys, to the front desk staff, to the shuttle driver was very genuine and helpful. Usually a staff at a company like this is inconsistent, there are goods staff members and bad so it is just luck what you get, but I very impressed with the consistency of Cutter's staff in terms of both attitude and service. Cutter will be my go-to FBO in the future without question I highly recommend them!
From Tom Newman on 17-Apr-2015

  Flew through last week on a round trip to Arizona. Rolling in a piston single - stopped at Cutter KABQ both ways. Wife likes to bring the pooch on the longer trips. Karrie at Cutter was awesome! Literally brought out the red carpet, water and treats for the dog. Counter staff is super nice; linemen are super fast! Not our first time here, and certainly won't be the last. Thanks Cutter, you're still our favorite FBO!
From William Dubois on 13-Apr-2015

  So I flew into Cutter in my more-than-humble 1947 Ercoupe and parked next to a Lear. Yikes! But you know what? The staff treated me like a king! They literally brought out the red carpet (but then didn't know where to put it because Ercoupes don't have obvious doors if you've never seen one before). It was a hot day, and my teenage son appreciated being handed a bottle of cold water right off the bat. The linemen--and linewoman--were helpful and friendly, as was the front desk staff both in the evening and the following morning. It didn't faze anyone that I only needed a few gallons of gas, and they found hangar space for me for the night, including locating a cord for my pre-heater. The next morning my plane was on the line and ready for me right at the requested time. The facilities are very good, with every thing you could want, with fast Internet and comfy chairs; but I found it was the Cutter people who really made the difference. They were extraordinary.
From Rod McDermott on 11-Apr-2015

  We flew in on Thurs April 9th and radio'd from 80 miles out that we needed fuel but wanted to see if someone could get us some sandwiches for the flight to SoCal directly after fuel. When we landed, the sandwiches were there, fuelers were ready and we were on our way in short order. Best service of nearly any FBO out there, and great attitudes. Thanks Cutter ABQ.
From R. Richmond on 29-Mar-2015

  Kerrie and Chantel went out of their way to make us feel valued even though we were the only a single engine Cessna among the heavy corporate iron.
From Jeff Hankinson on 23-Mar-2015

  I've used Cutter since I've started flying to ABQ and the service is usually pretty good. On my last visit however, I was overnight for the first time and it's how they returned my plane to me that will never have me visit their facility again and strongly discourage anyone else from staying with them overnight. They returned my aircraft to me covered in small rocks and debris, which is totally unacceptable and caused the paint to be scratched in several places. While I was shocked, the GM seemed non-plussed; though I have never had that occur at the other FBO.

Response from Jessi Rowden, General Manager, Cutter ABQ
While we understand your irritation over the affects of a sand storm in the ABQ basin, "rocks and debris" is more than a slight exaggeration. We offered a hangar when you arrived, you chose tie-down. When I discovered your issue, I apologized and attempted to rectify your dissatisfaction by offering a full wash, wax and detail to remedy any negative effects the high winds might have caused your aircraft, which you declined. We are sorry for what happened, but your comment needs to serve "both sides of the coin".

From Kelvin Crezee on 21-Feb-2015

  Pleasant and personable FBO even for a single engine prop. Provided free shuttle van ride to local hotel and had my plane up front and ready for departure with 30-minute notice. Waived one-day ramp fee for fuel purchase. Loved watching the military jets come and go. Will be back.
