  Hi my team used the Bakersfield Jet Center as a forward operating base for some experimental remote sensing work. We kept odd hours and were constantly "in the way." We abused their hospitality. The staff and facilities were great! I hope we have some more streamlined operations we can base from their center soon.

  I come here pretty much every day during the week. The staff is always friendly and very helpful. They have good coffee for the fans, and ice cream sandwiches for the nasty Bakersfield heat. Like I said, the staff is awesome. Karson usually helps me when I'm there, she is professional and fun at the same time!
From Theodore Robnett on 04-Jun-2017

  Fleecing Pilots - "that's our deal". Diverted to KBFL because my consumed fuel enroute was higher than my projected fuel usage. Upon arriving at Bakersfield Jet Center, discovered 100LL was much more expensive than elsewhere in the area. When I asked the lady behind the front desk, she said "Yeah. That's our deal. No one actually wants to stop in Bakersfield, and we're the last fuel stop before you go into, or get out of the mountains, so lots of pilots have to stop here." I suggest another deal. When flying from the north, you can stop at KVIS or some other small airport where they have self-service fuel, and it's at least $1/gal cheaper.

  Thanks to Loyds Aviation, also known as Bakersfield Jet Center, for the great service. Special thanks to Sean for making my visit quick and efficient. I have used Loyd's many times in the past, but not recently. It's nice to see their great service has not changed.
From Bruce Bennett on 02-May-2017

  WOW! This team took the very best care of us all around. Judith lined us up with a VERY nice (and 30% discounted!) hotel room as well as personally following up when the hotel staff had some organizational challenges. Karson and the line crew then assisted us and our passengers in every detail of launching. They gave us rides to and from the terminal, had a rental car waiting, Coffee, ice, all the usuals plus a great helpful attitude. Overall FIRST CLASS, thank you!
From Charles Hancock on 31-Jan-2017

  Stopped by Bakersfield Jet Center/Loyd's Aviation on Saturday, Jan 28, 2017. The service was excellent and the facility was top flight (pun intended). Line service was fast, efficient, very polite and professional. Fuel prices for 100LL for our GA airplane was certainly in the range and a better price the big-name competitor. We'll stop by again when in the area and needing fuel or just to stretch our legs - Loyd's treats you the same; Embraer, Citation, or simple old Piper Arrow or Cessna 172. We recommend 'em!
From Ken Williams on 02-Dec-2015

  Just had a great experience with the folks at Bakersfield Jet Center. Landed with an oil leak (scary). The mechanics fairly pounced on the problem. Ever seen three guys working on a Cherokee engine at the same time? Diagnosed and repaired in three hours. So grateful and happy to recommend these fine people.
From Julie E. Clark, Air show performer 35 years, retired Airline Capt NWA on 15-Oct-2015

  I am a well known professional air show pilot. I got stuck here right in my home state trying to fly to SBD for their air show. TRW's popped up and were severe enough that even on an IFR flight plan I had to land for the night. The folks at Bakersfield Jet Center could not have been nicer and more courteous!! Since my ground support vehicle had already arrived at air show site, all my stuff was with them. Particularily my dog's food and carry bag!! Judy at the front desk found me a nice motel pet friendly, and gave me some dog food they had on hand at the FBO! My airplane was also towed to a hangar in short order by line manager Danniel. All the folks went way above the normal treatment of a typical FBO, and right here in my "back yard" practically. With 3 choices at BFL, I would definitely recommend Bakersfield Jet Center as THE CHOICE at BFL!!
From Jeff W. Robertson on 05-Oct-2015

  What a wonderful FBO! The staff went out of their way to assist us during a brief stopover. Bought 30 gals of gas and a quart of oil and they treated us like we flew in a G5. Thanks so much!
From John Derence on 05-Sep-2015

  Amazing experience at Bakersfield Jet Center. This is what every FBO should be like. Judith and Tyler made my experience exceptional. A+ Rating. Go here if you need to decide on an FBO.
From David Hill on 01-Aug-2015

  This is a highly professional organization that understands the meaning of customer service. The linemen go out of their way to help and the facility staff is very friendly and welcoming. I made an unscheduled stop here in the face of ugly darkening skies and a line of impending thunderstorms. While I hung out and waited out the weather, everybody made me feel at home. Special thank you to staff pilot Rob, who helped me decipher some tricky weather info and gave me my own personal pirep. Thank you, Rob, and thank you Bakersfield Jet Center.
From Joana Chen on 10-Jul-2015

  Did my cross country solo to BFL and stopped at Bakersfield Jet Center for a short break. In addition to the Oreo cookies and the lovely lounge, the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Every time I've been at this FBO, Ken, Judith, and Nancy have been most friendly and helpful. Ingrid, John, Noah, and William always take great care of our planes and are a pleasure to chat with. Looking forward to my next trip to BFL!
