  Nice people here make HKY a great stop. Called ahead, Pam and Corry arranged rental car and hangar. Corry met us when we arrived, brought car to plane & helped with bags. Amy had lots of helpful local info. When we returned, plane was out, fueled, and ready to go. Missed the names of couple other folks, but plenty of help whenever we needed. Thank you. We'll be back.

  Stopped in with a ME Student this weekend. The FBO staff is superb and the fuel cost reasonable. Excellent service. The museum was our 2nd stop - highly motivated & knowledgeable volunteer force of mostly retired military folks. Well worth your time to have a look. Be sure to buy some stuff!

  Excellent service at this airfield. Tower very professional. FBO personnel were awesome.

  Had to turn back from my intended destination of Asheville due to Snow and Icing. I landed in my Cherokee 140, was greeted on the ramp- and everyone from the tower controller to the ladies behind the desk went out of their way to get me a rental car, arrange my tie down and fuel, and get me on my way. I returned the next day- a day earlier than anticipated for my departure- plane was ready to go- no muss, no fuss. I will be back- on purpose next time. :)

  Great airport with convenient self serve fuel, very friendly tower and FBO. Cafe offers free lunch on Fri and sat with fuel purchase!
From Ron Natalie on 31-Aug-2015

  Stop in here even though it's only 19 miles from home. Great fuel price, really helpful FBO, nice museum!
From Michael Gordon on 12-May-2015

  This is the standard in which all FBO's should operate. I landed, was marshaled into position and the ramp crew insisted on help unload the plane. Once inside I completed my fuel order and was handed over the keys to the Hertz rental, which was parked right outside the door. Upon my return a few days later the plane was fueled up and moved right outside the door on the ramp for easy loading. It just doesn't get any better than this folks.

  Stopped for lunch yesterday at the Crosswinds Cafe. Great service and food. I'll be back!
