  Had a hole in tube at Corning airport, about 20 miles from Chico. Alicia replied to all my questions to ensure I was getting correct size replacement. Replied quickly and professionally even during the weekend evenings. ...THEN she even drove it over to me, about 35 mins each way...And refused to take a tip. I would heartily recommend them to anyone. Give them your business.
From Bruce Horn on 20-Jun-2018

  The auxiliary fuel pump on my Bonanza failed and I needed to find a Beech-savvy mechanic to replace it; I was on the ground at Willows (KWLW) and there are no mechanics on the field. After calling several shops within an hour or so of Willows I was able to get in touch with Steve Larson, the director of maintenance at Northgate Aviation, who was willing to drive from Chico with a replacement pump. Steve was fast, efficient and friendly; I couldn't ask for better service! I will certainly be stopping at Northgate next time I am passing through.
From Dan Jacobs on 21-Aug-2017

  Had a starter problem today, and these guys were simply off the charts. They helped arrange transportation, external battery carts, even trying a charter effort. Completely blown away at how professional and helpful!! Top of the chart!!
From Greg Bedinger on 08-Aug-2017

  Alicia was right there upon our arrival got us squared away with fuel and a ride into town to the hotel!
From Pierre Redmond on 11-Jul-2017

  Not just exceptionally friendly, but also competent and get it done! I diverted to Chico with my amphib 182 because the left brake pedal was going to the floor. I notified tower and when I shut down, Alicia was standing there, letting me know that while it was after 4:00, Steve the mechanic would be back to help. He bled the lines, problem solved, and he's a nice, and interesting guy. The line guys fueled me. Alicia brought me waters and goodies. I want to adopt them!
From Joshua Elliott on 20-May-2016

  Northgate has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Their line service is awesome and they have always accommodated us with hangar space.
From Bob Heath on 04-May-2016

  I had a mag failure in my DA40 while enroute to nearby RanchAero and diverted into KCIC for help. Steve at Northgate immediately offered whatever assistance I needed, whether it was help me fix it myself (I'm an A&P) or have him do the whole job. I asked that he do it so I could enjoy my family visit and he did a great job. I was on the road again, as scheduled, in 2 days after a very pleasant experience. Another transient aircraft arrived at the same time with alternator failure and I saw him get the same great treatment. Thanks Steve!
From Marv Wessel on 22-Apr-2016

  I'm not a frequent poster. I only post comments if the experience is really bad or really good. This is a family run business that treats everybody like family. My first flight in was a late arrival (after normal hours) and Alicia went completely out of her way to see to it that I had accommodations for the night and even offered to inconvenience her own family to increase my level of service. The next morning I was met at my hotel by Alicia with comfortable transportation, Starbucks, breakfast and a genuinely warm good morning! A few days later on my return trip I got diverted by weather and chose to land at Chico. Again, I was met with a family style greeting, tucked my plane in the hangar and they made reservations at one of the nicest hotels in town and dropped me off. It just doesn't get any better than this! They rent aircraft and have competent service personnel too! It's not easy to impress me but WOW! Fully warranted 5 star rating!!
From Bill Freeman on 15-Apr-2016

  My wife and I flew in to Chico for the first time on a Thursday afternoon two weeks ago and had one of the best experiences ever. We were offered bicycles to get to and from our distant parking spot as well as a crew vehicle to get to and from the local restaurants with ample direction on choices. We were even given Northern aviation hats and shirts. They filled the plane and cleaned the windshield while we were in town for dinner. We will be back to visit Chico again soon. Thanks Guys.
From Jennifer Phillips on 02-Apr-2016

  Alicia was so friendly and helpful when we pulled up in our medical Lear Jet. She drove us to our hotel and gave suggestions for dinner. Her cute dog, Mac, kept a secure eye out as we all unloaded our gear and refueled our jet for our mission the next day. Cory was kind enough to wake up very early to meet us at the FBO so we could make our take off time off 0500. And we loved the Star Wars themed bathrooms! Very unique and friendly environment. Great job Alicia!!! We will definitely be back!
From Mark Sorensen on 30-Mar-2016

  Northgate has a great facility and friendly staff there at the Chico airport. I have bought fuel from them and hangared my Maule there in bad weather. On this occasion I needed help with a brake problem that the mechanic at the previous airport could not fix. Their mechanic Steve offered to take a look at it and within 5 minutes had it fixed! I was happy and on my way again. Thanks!
From Will Tinsley on 09-Mar-2016

  We had a one day stay. Called the night before, no answer--left a message. Called during business hours the morning of--no answer. Called on the flight phone 30 minutes out, got an answer but seemed like I was annoying the person answering the phone. Call on the radio 10 minutes out--no answer. No one to marshal us in and no one from the FBO came out to meet us. Walked into what I thought was the FBO but it was a sales place. The guy in there was friendly and helpful. Said it wasn't the FBO but we were welcome to hang out. Finally searched for the FBO people and found a line guy that confirmed I was in the FBO but that was it. The FBO facility was a wide spot in a hangar. They are the only game on the airport so can't go anywhere else and it shows.
From Michael Decker on 03-Mar-2016

  With 12 years of aviation experience, stopping at multiple FBO's in 42 of the lower 48, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that the Northgate Aviation staff makes you feel like family. We broke down there for 5 days and Alicia Rock lent us the courtesy car for the whole time. Not only that, but upon meeting her, I explained that my wife was from that area and she took me on a personal tour of the city. This enabled my wife to relive childhood memories through photos that Alicia took of these places and me. I would highly recommend anyone with an opportunity to stop by!! Thanks again Alicia and crew, The AXEMEN!!!
From Gerald Blank on 06-Feb-2016

  Cameron is to be congratulated, as I had to land late with my Mirage the other night and he took care of everything. Hangaring, hotel, fuel, etc. That is what I needed after landing due to weather, a smiling and capable face. Thanks very much.
