From Terry Messing on 11-Oct-2018

 
  Top notch group of folks! Always asking if you need anything and to be sure to let us know.. CAA well worth some extra benefits. Much better than the Snakes at PWK and ORD.. . Thank you Hawthorne!
 
From Bruce Hanson II on 11-Sep-2018

 
  This is our second time to visit KPWK and Hawthorne. We had such great service the first time, it was an easy choice to use them again, and they did not disappoint. We through this trip together at the last minute, and the staff at Hawthorne came through outstandingly, getting us a car set up for us over the Labor Day weekend. I called in the morning departing from Dallas, and they had the car (despite being a holiday weekend) for us when we got there. I will certainly use them again when I'm in Chicago.
 
From Austin Hunt on 19-Jul-2018

 
  This is a first-class FBO with excellent service and attention to detail. Their team went above and beyond to take care of our passengers and us. Kudos - We will be back!
 
From Robert Beverly on 27-Jan-2018

 
  Top-notch and elegant facility with friendly service by all personnel. Fee is waived for single-engine planes with minimum 10 gal purchase. Lots of Uber cars available in the area and my ride arrived in less than 5 minutes.
 
From Dan Herr on 14-Dec-2017

 
  Beautiful facility. They have more than enough traffic to need and justify a second GPU.
 
From Jim O'Day on 15-Nov-2017

 
  Could not have been treated better! Beautiful facility and terrific customer service. Look forward to my next time in town.
 
From Jerrold Seckler on 12-Jul-2017

 
  I landed at PWK in my Cirrus to pick up someone. I was promptly marshaled in. Everyone was very nice and the facility is simply beautiful. My only reservation, and it's a big one, is that for landing and being parked for no more than 15 minutes with zero services required, I had to pay a $45.00 facility fee. That's simply exorbitant. Unfortunately I believe the other 2 FBOs on the field charge similarly. Good reason for me to avoid PWK if possible.
 
From Steve Bruno on 16-Jun-2017

 
  Outstanding FBO! Beautiful facility and exceptional staff. Very fair prices, particularly so for a big city FBO. Thank you!
 
From Michel Lahaie on 22-Aug-2016

 
  In a country where there are many excellent FBO's, I consider Hawthorne to be outstanding. The facilities are beautiful and even better, the personnel including Patricia and Jocelyn, the line guys who insists on helping you with the luggage, all make you feel welcome as a customer. If you are going to Chicago, both the approaches to KPWK and the FBO service make it well worthwhile to land there.
 
From Chris Hiles on 22-Jun-2016

 
  This was a great FBO. They were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Every one of the ramps personal was willing to assist us in any way they could. We greeted warmly on the initial radio call 20 minutes out. Our hotel shuttle was going to be almost an hour so they offered to give our group of 9 people a ride to the hotel, which was much appreciated. Customs was waiting for us at the FBO, which made things really easy for our passengers and us.
 
From David Leiting Jr. on 09-Nov-2015

 
  Stopped in on a Friday morning in a C172 to borrow the crew car to pick up a friend in town. Called ahead to see if the car would be available, and they told me to schedule it, so I did. When we arrived, we were told the car would be back shortly. After waiting for 45, the car finally returned. I would recommend having more than one crew car for an airport this size.. Took the 10 gallon minimum fuel to waive the $40 facility fee. A bit pricey, but we needed the fuel anyway. The front desk worker and line workers were extremely helpful and friendly. They treated our little beat up 172 just like we were a Challenger 600. 5/5 for the service, just wish we didn't have to wait for the crew car.
 
From Brandon Maso on 09-Aug-2015

 
  These guys are truly awesome. We arrived after hours (10:30p.M.) in a C172. We had called ahead saying that we had a nearby hotel for the night and were trying to work out the ride situation. They happily drove us to our hotel and back in the morning. Their fuel was reasonably priced (relatively speaking), and the facility was top notch. The aircraft was kept in the shade and fueled correctly and on time for our 10a.M. Departure the next morning. Additionally, all fees were waved because we got a top off. The other FBOs on the field refused to waive some fees even with fuel purchase when I spoke to them on the phone. With a competitor like Hawthorne, it's amazing to me that the others are even able to stay in business!!
 
From Jim Mathias on 04-Aug-2015

 
  My wife and I recently flew in early to Hawthorne and were treated very well. We got the red carpet treatment, a car was ready. The line person called us with a minor problem with our wheel fairing. It was a good experience. We will use them again.
 
From Craig Cameron on 03-Aug-2015

 
  Arrived 30 JUL 2015 for a couple of days and they were right there to help out. Got us a shuttle to the hotel and had everything set up and fueled prior to leaving. And Patricia at the counter was EXTREAMLY helpful, even told us about a special free Music in the Park show with fireworks that night minutes from our hotel. We had a blast! Most friendly, accommodating FBO at a large airport I have ever been to. We will definitely us Hawthorne again for our annual trip to Rosemont.
 
From Barry Fitzgerald on 18-Jul-2015

 
  WOW. Customer service at it's finest. I will be back. All very helpful.
 
From Richard Greb on 25-Jun-2015

 
  Used Hawthorne for a recent 3 day trip to Chicago area. Ramp and front desk staff were all welcoming, professional, and extremely helpful. Facilities and equipment all top shelf. I will definitely use Hawthorne in future missions.
 
From Kevin Malone on 21-Jun-2015

 
  Great service at a very nice facility. Quick turn in our C421 and we were greeted warmly on the ramp. Ramp fees/fuel pricey, but not out of line for good service in a big city.
 
From Eric Maffei on 10-Jun-2015

 
  Great prices and service with no call in fees! Thanks to Patricia for helping make my visit a great one.
 
From Paul Palmisciano on 23-Dec-2014

 
  Very comfortable pilot lounge. Extremely hospitable staff. Discounts available for AOPA members. Highly recommended
 
From Douglas Mill on 25-Nov-2014

 
  Fantastic service at Hawthorne!
 
From Joe Kirby on 21-Nov-2014

 
  This was my first visit to Palwaukee and to Hawthorne and I was thoroughly impressed. I was very impressed with the friendliness of all staff from my initial phone call, to my interaction with line and desk staff during my arrival and departure. I will definitely come back to Palwaukee and Hawthorne. Their fees were very competitive and each staff member I met made us feel welcome and valued as a customer.
 
From Guilherme Schmidt on 02-Nov-2014

 
  I used Hawthorne for the first time, and I was impressed by well appointed the facilities are, and how excellent service is. Fuel price is also the best. It is now my preferred stop into Chicago
 
From Steve Bruno TBM 850KB on 07-Oct-2014

 
  Exceptional FBO in every respect. Hawthorne is conveniently located with beautiful facilities and superior customer service.
 
From Robert Bernstein on 15-Sep-2014

 
  Flew in for one evening to attend an event on the field. I was treated like royalty. Beautiful facility and wonderful staff. I wouldn't hesitate to visit Hawthorne again
 
From Garrison Lickle on 15-Sep-2014

 
  Was ferrying an Airvan (new to me) Had a choice as between two FBOs for an overnight and due to another good experience with Hawthorne, went to Hawthorne. Great choice as front desk could not have been more helpful and kind and line guys were tops. And to top it off received a personal hand written thank you for our business, WOW! Donít see those much anymore but sure rang a great bell.
 
From Mark Gricewich on 14-Sep-2014

 
  We received excellent service at Hawthorne. Our competitively priced rental car was available to us immediately on arrival. Fuel request was completed timely and accurate. All the Hawthorne staff performed their duties to complete satisfaction. I recommend Hawthorne at Executive.
 
From Dan Streufert on 09-Sep-2014

 
  Seems to be the best deal for Piston Singles on the field. Just called them: Prices for SE Piston: $45(?) handling fee - waived with 20 gal $20 per night on the ramp
 
From Bruce Hanson II on 05-Sep-2014

 
  We used KPWK for a visit to Chicago in a Bonanza. The staff at Hawthorne was just excellent for the entire experience. Kiah got us set up in a car at an inexpensive rate and handled every aspect of our visit wonderfully. There were some pretty good thunderstorms coming through while we were there, and they took care of hangaring our Bonanza inexpensively. First rate, I certainly plan on using them next time.
 
From Lyle Pahnke on 27-Aug-2014

 
  Flew in to drop off an international Passenger at O'Hare. Was greeted and chocked fueled and a requested (new) crew car was waiting. Outstanding Red Carpet service for a Cherokee Warrior. The fuel purchase covered all amenities. Beautiful experience, gorgeous facilities and friendly tower folks. Hope to get back soon. Great Place. Thanks all.
 
From Bryan Giem on 26-Aug-2014

 
  Stopped in at Hawthorne on 8/18. Excellent service, prices were fair, nice facility. I'd recommend it and we'll be back next time we go to PWK.
 
From Robert Allen on 23-Aug-2014

 
  Excellent service. Friendly folks. I left my wallet in the cab after being dropped off at the hotel. I called Hawthorne who tracked the cab down, got him to return to the hotel and reunite me with my wallet. Thanks Hawthorne, I'll be back.
 
From Brandon Reardon on 20-Aug-2014

 
  As soon as we saw Hawthorne was open on the field we immediately began utilizing their services over the other FBO's on the field. The line crew, staff and management make us feel like we are their top priority. The building and ramp are impeccable and well appointed. 10/10 would recommend.
 
From Eddie Yell on 18-Aug-2014

 
  One of Chicago's best kept secrets. Facilities were palatial. Hangar was immaculate and could have sheltered several large / mid-size or many mid-size/ small aircraft. The staff from top to bottom was first class service all the way. Truly one of the finest FBO's in this country.
 
From Michael Klingler on 17-Aug-2014

 
  Just like everyone else said. They had to notch guest services. Very nice people. I showed up there with a rental 172 wearing gym shorts and sandals. Needing only 5 gal of fuel in my wing. They were not bothered by that. Halved my fees that is normally a 20 gal min purchase. On top of all of that the treated me with 1st class service.
 
From Dave Evans on 10-Aug-2014

 
  I visited Hawthorne at the end of July '14. I was excited as a former employee of Service Aviation to see what new FBO had been built on the grounds of our old one. I was met with a red carpet by two very friendly line techs who were more than willing to help me tie down for the night. I left that day with a very positive impression. The next day when I went to leave and they asked for $65 I was caught VERY off-guard. After calling ahead to get the rate ($20) I was quite surprised to learn of the $45 'Facility Fee'. Perhaps there's a sauna that I didn't see, otherwise I'm not sure what facilities I was being charged for. They said they'd waive it if I bought 20 Gal of gas (@$7.77/gallon). The stock tank in my plane is only 18G, so I mentioned that wasn't an option to which I received a 'oh, that's too bad'. Overall: very friendly staff, quite nice building (enjoy it, you're paying for it), but extraordinarily high rates, the facility fee was waived when I contested it as a result of their misquote the day prior..
 
From Scott Liker on 06-Aug-2014

 
  This is the newest and nicest FBO in the Chicago area. They have thought of everything to make passengers and crew comfortable. Service is outstanding, and the facility is first class. Best of all, you won't get gouged on the fuel price, or hit with a bunch of hidden fees. The can handle large jets no problem, and have hangar space to fit a Global.
