  This is a first class operation under the leadership and supervision of John Tonko Also to be mentioned the most welcoming ground personal under the supervision of RYAN..
From Harry Hedaya on 02-Oct-2018

  This FBO is most likely the finest FBO I have ever visited! Their staff is attentive, their fuel prices are great and their facilities are world class. Huge thank you from us (N423CS) to everyone that helped (including dog sitting while we went out for lunch!) and taking really good care of our plane. I am really enjoying the Bose headset I purchased in their pilot shop. Happy I could try it before buying it unlike online sellers.
From Erin Patrick Pierce on 20-Aug-2018

  I get the same service from Banyan in a Mooney M20J as I do in a Hawker 1000: perfection. I love these guys.
From Caitlyn Fahey on 29-Jun-2018

  Banyan was recommended to us for our first flight over to the Bahamas. They lived up to expectations and then some. Everyone was so knowledge about the procedures and their service was top notch. We were a flight of three homebuilt, and it was nice to see us treated the same as the big guys. When one of our aircraft had a battery issue they were so helpful getting it resolved. Plus their pilot shop is the best I've ever seen!
From Daniel Kockel on 26-Apr-2018

  Banyan was flat out fantastic. Most likely the best FBO I have been to as a Pilot. They were extremely accommodating and very hospitable. We had a medical emergency going in and they dealt with it flawlessly. Definitely the place to go if you are in the area. Big thanks to Banyan!!
From Jarrett Duncovich on 22-Apr-2018

  Exceptional, extraordinary, and professional. I contacted the local pilot/YouTuber Steveo1Kinevo that I was flying into the Ft. Lauderdale area for a weekend and asked which airport/FBO he would suggest. He immediately suggested FXE and Banyan. I can see why. We arrived in a small Piper Archer and we were treated NO different than a million dollar jet. Upon arrival, we were directed and greeted by our Lineman (sorry that I forgot your name), who asked if we needed any services. We told him that we were staying the weekend and when we would be leaving. Though I understand this is typical, he was kind and courteous (all about good Customer Service). The lobby of the FBO resembled that of a 5-Star hotel. Absolutely incredible. All the Front Desk agents were very helpful and helped me with any situation. Melissa was extremely helpful. When leaving, Angel helped us depart and his professionalism was outstanding! Definitely understands the meaning of Customer Service.
From Mike Harwood on 18-Oct-2017

  I have flown out of Banyan the last few weeks several times a day doing hurricane relief. Everyone did a great job supporting our operation. Thanks!
From Theodore Leb, Piper Aztec N999TL on 01-Oct-2017

  Without any hesitation I can attest that Banyan is the best FBO I ever been to in the USA. Under John Tonko management and supervision every time you visit you are treated like a VIP!! I highly recommend this FBO.
From Fred Lowerre on 23-Dec-2016

  Flew in yesterday for lunch at Jetway Cafe. It would have been a great experience had it not been for the cafe itself. The food was great, service excellent..... But it's so NOISY in the restaurant we had to yell in order to hear one another. It is far quieter outside even with engines turning everywhere, and this is NOT an exaggeration. I won't go back, my hearing is too valuable. If you do, bring your headsets and're going to need them.
From Joey Sager on 09-Dec-2016

  I've never had a better FBO experience - especially at a large, busy airport. From what I understand, KFXE is the busiest GA airport in the US. When you land and see all the large and mid-sized jets around, it's often a good sign that those flying anything less are just a nuisance. Not so, at Banyan. Everyone treated me with the respect and courtesy on my visit, from the moment I stepped out of the plane onto their red carpet. I've never been called "sir" as much in my life! Banyan has somehow cracked the nut on running a huge FBO while retaining that friendly, caring feel that usually only exists in small, hometown FBO's. Excellent fuel prices, well-trained employees, and caring people. Oh, and the pilot's shop is not to be missed. Overall great customer experience.
From Greg Vallero on 07-Dec-2016

  Dear Jon, I wanted to write a short letter of thanks for Banyan's excellent service. We moved our FXE business to Banyan over a year ago, and have never been disappointed. Your facility and staff are second to none. The staff is friendly, gracious, and willing to accommodate our passengers and crew. We are extremely happy with the service provided at your facility, so thank you for your great work. We would also like to acknowledge Natalia Arenillas, Dennis Porebski, and most especially, Barbara Bauer for service above and beyond the call. We moved from Aero Toy Store to Banyan at Barb's recommendation and with her assistance, and are very grateful for her special help. We hope you, the owners, and the staff & families of Banyan have a very Happy Holiday Season, and we look forward to continued business in 2017. Most Sincerely, Greg Vallero Chief Pilot: Crown Diversified Investments Chief Pilot Warbird Rides USA 636-373-4177 warbirdridesusa@gmail.Com
From Rick Hazen on 05-Oct-2016

  Best place at FXE, stellar fuel price with CAA, never had a complaint here once of the 50 times I have been here. These guys are always on point. Thanks Banyan!
From Hector Julio Freyre, Cpt. LV JRA on 23-Aug-2016

  "Customer service makes the difference" . I was highly surprised by the warmth and genuine spirit of good care during my last trip to USA, where I must emphasize, no doubt you will find when flying to Banyan FBO, Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (KFXE). Featuring this excellent service all the way from the ramp personnel who helped us, to the front desk with such attention to details like renting a car, recommendations for a good hotel in the area, or to eat at a very good restaurant. From Argentina my special thanks to the "People of Banyan"
From Wolfgang Weimer on 25-Jul-2016

  Good front desk staff but why park our single engine at the very end of the ramp on a Sunday evening? No other plane came in for the couple of hours we were there waiting for weather to clear, and no explanation from front desk when asked for the third class treatment. We would have happily traded the free cold water bottles for a spot on the main ramp. Field of dream / keep ramp empty and they will come? Fuel is overpriced but we knew that going in.
From Michael Simmons on 13-May-2016

  These folks NEVER disappoint! Great service, friendly staff. Why go anywhere else?
From Mike DiPetrillo on 01-May-2016

  These people never disappoint. Fly in there a lot in a Baron. Best service. Best line crew. Best front desk. You'll pay a little more for fuel but take advantage of the awesome service in return. They'll do anything for you. Tons of jets but never treated any different than the G650 guy.
From Jonathan Collett on 28-Mar-2016

  Great customer service, quick turn around time and even sent someone over to help us quickly get our entire luggage through customs. Will be back.
From Cari Miller on 02-Mar-2016

  The Banyan Air Service crew never lets you down in the exemplary customer service department. Bobby, Pablo, and the best line service crew ever make sure everything is handled down to a vacuum planeside in the blink of an eye. On this trip we had our Hawker in for an engine swap and much to my delight... The best customer service manager ever, Bruce Woodrell has relocated his brilliant service to Go Rentals. We had three cars ready and waiting and I was definitely not complaining about the Go Rentals 2016 Jeep Wrangler that was waiting for me to take to the Keys on our down days. Thank you Go Rentals and Banyan for making seamless maintenance, service, and a great weekend for me. I wish they could clone you nationally.
From Vaughn Dobalian MD on 29-Feb-2016

  Always good service but fuel prices are way too high for Avgas and general aviation, give us a deal like you do for Jet A
