  Doesn't get much better than this. Cheap fuel and tiedowns, long runway, scenic location, and staff were extremely friendly. :) Even though it's in the mountains, the arrival/departure ends are not surrounded by terrain that requires high performance climb-outs. Still, watch the winds, and density altitude in summer!

  I don't doubt others' mixed experiences but Big Bear City Airport remains my favorite fuel/feeding stop between N. CA and Arizona, a route I fly a lot, but with a couple of caveats. The avgas is my favorite brand: "CHEAP, " consistently around the cheapest in CA. The greasy spoon restaurant is also quite decent. Summers I arrive by mid-morning to avoid density altitude problems, and it is quite wonderful and easier on the engine too to depart a nice, cool 6, 000 ft airport instead of from the miserably hot (even by 10 AM) much lower Mojave Desert. Still, you may want to avoid this airport when winds are above about 25 kt (arrival will be bumpy with any wind speed over 15 kt) or there is any possibility of icing, mainly in wintertime.

  Great location, fuel cheap. Tiedown fee not waived with fuel purchase ("the fuel is too cheap"). The guy at the Hertz counter is a total jerk, and was pretty rude to my wife - next time we'll use Enterprise and see how that goes. Guy who opens FBO on Mondays also really unfriendly.

  Nice little airport in the mountains with very cheap fuel! The overnight fee is $5 for singles and $7 for twins and you pay at the airport manager's desk by the waiting room. There is a great restaurant in the building and if you are a pilot or passenger you get a 15% discount. Hertz car rental location in the terminal which is very convenient although the agent seemed almost annoyed that I didn't call the location directly to make my reservation so therefore they didn't have a clean car ready for me and got a rundown on their special rules about not holding car rentals more than one hour past the reservation time etc. Even though I was on time for my reservation. They seem to have their own policies that didn't line up with what I'm used to with the Hertz website. So, if you're going to rent a car there make sure you call them directly with your information to confirm they have it and don't be late. There is also a bus that runs during the day into town.

  Wow...great fuel prices

  I filled up going to Utah and again returning 2 days later. Lovely, scenic stop at altitude with quick fueling and close access to restaurant and restrooms. Always great fuel prices. Best fuel stop in So. Cal.

  I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff at this airport (and people in this town, for that matter)! We flew in just to grab lunch and ended up getting socked-in with snow and LIFR conditions. The entire staff at the field helped us out in every way possible. We had no cold weather gear and so they gave us sweaters to use for the night and allowed us to pay later. They drove us to a motel for the night and the nice receptionist at the hotel brought us back in the morning. They provided a ladder and de-icing equipment to get the snow off the next day, and were all around helpful and friendly.

  Very General Aviation Friendly. Good facilities at the FBO and a decent restaurant. Rental cars available at the FBO.
