About Cutter Aviation
Founded in 1928, Cutter Aviation is America's oldest continually family-owned FBO and aviation service company. Cutter Aviation operates at eight major airports in the Southwestern United States. Cutter locations in Arizona (Deer Valley and Phoenix Sky Harbor), New Mexico (Albuquerque), Texas (Dallas-Addison, and San Antonio) and Colorado (Colorado Springs) provide a wide range of services to transient and based aircraft including fuel and FBO service, maintenance, avionics, new and pre-owned aircraft sales and charter and aircraft management.

The Phoenix, facility is a full-service, fixed-base operations, with Albuquerque and Colorado Springs providing line services for transient aircraft. San Antonio and Dallas-Addison provide new and pre-owned aircraft sales as well as maintenance.

Looking Back
Continuously family-owned for eight decades, the company originated as Cutter Flying Service Inc., in Albuquerque. William P. Cutter envisioned a business that would serve the fledgling aviation community - and the resulting enterprise exceeded his expectations. The company survived the Great Depression, and, at the outbreak of World War II, became major pilot training facility for the military. In 1947, the company began its long-standing affiliation with Beech Aircraft Corporation. Since that time, the Cutter name became, and continues to be, synonymous with major and emerging aircraft brands ranging from piston singles to light and medium turbine aircraft.

Looking Ahead
Over the years, Cutter has maintained a position of leadership in the general aviation community by consistently expanding its services and its locations. Cutter Aviation, Inc., opened its Phoenix operation in 1959. The Deer Valley facility opened in 1997, San Antonio in 1998, Colorado Springs in 2006 and Dallas-Addison in 2013. Cutter remains strong due to an unwavering commitment to customer service, customer and employee satisfaction, and business practices rooted in our core values of respect, trust and integrity.

Company President Will Cutter reinforces this: "These are key ingredients to a formula that has kept us at the forefront of the industry. They have helped us establish a reputation that we are all proud of. Our values have served us well for eighty years, and without them, Cutter would be just another run-of-the-mill service station for airplanes."

  Cutter at ABQ has been providing me with excellent service for many years, and they are consistently excellent and efficient. This is one of my favorites FBO's to visit because I know I am going to be treated right and greeted with a smile, and their CAA fuel price is very competitive.
From Alireza Alivandivafa on 29-Apr-2019

  Very nice crew, good crew cars and no hassle.
From Spencer Hamons on 12-Apr-2019

  I fly from my home in Angel Fire, NM (KAXX) to KABQ several times a month to catch commercial flights across the country. The Cutter staff at ABQ have always treated me as if I were coming in on a jet, even though I am in a piston single. Their crew cars are some of the nicest I have ever seen, and they are great about grabbing someone to run you over to the terminal in their courtesy shuttle. When I return on my commercial flight, I can call them as soon as I start walking through the terminal, and they are usually meeting me just outside the doors when I get there. The line crew is great, and they pay careful attention-to-detail when fueling, moving, and positioning the plane. I will continue to use Cutter's services at any airport they have a facility.
From Dan Herr on 04-Apr-2019

  Jessi also emailed me directly to ensure that I am aware that changes have been made. This type of response is what makes Cutter a first-class FBO.
From Dan Herr on 01-Apr-2019

  I have always loved Cutter, and the line crew here is terrific, but I was charged the non-CAA fuel price and non-CAA ramp fees despite telling the CSR several times that I am a CAA member. Cutter promptly issued a refund when I called, but I expect better.

Response from Jessi Rowden, General Manager, Cutter ABQ
Mr. Herr- I am sincerely sorry for the inconvenience you experienced on your last visit to Cutter ABQ. The young lady processing your payment on departure unfortunately indeed made mistakes with your billing on our new payment system. Once you brought the mistake to our attention, we rectified it immediately and implemented additional training on the system as well as a CAA handling refresher for ALL staff members. I know that this is unfortunately after the fact for your experience, however I hope that you will give us another chance. Please know that we greatly appreciate your business, hold ourselves to a high standard and will do everything in our power to prevent errors from occurring again. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional concerns you may have. -

  Another 5 star experience at Cutter! Seth & Kathryn met us with luggage cart. CSRs Promise, Alexandra, and Jocelyn handled hangar, hotel and transportation arrangements, and Kerrie had us fueled on time and online for departure. Cutter staff makes ABQ one of our favorite stops. Thank you, again!
From Jonathan Shorey, N560RK on 27-Feb-2019

  Cutter Aviation gets 5 stars, if 6 were an option they would have got that! They treated us like part of the family. They are a great example of what old fashion FBO service is like. Thank you and see you next time around.
From Sean Julian on 08-Jan-2019

  I arrived late at night. The staff took care of my plane and even brought me to the hotel. The next morning they brought my plane into the hangar to clear the ice and warm my plane. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. I would definitely use them again. Thank you staff!
From Adam Charles on 13-Oct-2018

  One of the best. Even the non pilot passengers notice they are a step above. Always use Cutter when in ABQ.
From Chuck Waldrop on 17-Sep-2018

  I did an overnight stop over in ABQ on Saturday the 15th of Sep and as usual Cutter provided excellent service in every way. They treat the piston guys just as nice as the Turbines and my dogs are always welcome
From Carl L. Hopkins on 16-Sep-2018

  Arrived mid day in my Bonanza BE36. Was meet by staff and marshaled into a parking spot in from of the entrance door. They brought a baggage cart and water. I took on 40 gallons (a bit high priced at $6.14) but no other charges (with 20 gallons or more). Got a ride to a hotel right away in a nice cool van. Next morning the plane was waiting right out front ready to go. Very pleased. Will use next time.
From Robert McMeekin on 21-May-2018

  Stopped here again on eastbound trip and found same outstanding service as before. Promise, Alexandra, & Leo at the desk are very efficient with arrangements. Kerrie, Jeff, Matt & Seth on the line were amazing with parking, luggage, and directing traffic. The B-17 was on their ramp and was set up in the lobby to give tours and rides, but the Cutter staff was courteous and accommodating making the entire experience here pleasant. Thank you, we'll be back.
From Robert McMeekin on 13-May-2018

  Cutter definitely sets a high standard for FBO services. Been about a year since we were here last, but it was like returning home. Jeff parked, greeted & helped with luggage. Promise arranged hangar, hotel & transportation almost before we could down the bottle of water they provided. Next morning plane was out and fueled on time & Kerrie helped with luggage and marshaling us out. Nice people here. I was particularly impressed at how courteous all the staff were, even when dealing with a couple crews that must not have had a good day. Thank you!
From Allen Mathews on 09-Apr-2018

  Friendly, professional, quality folks who make everyone - pilots and passengers - feel like family.
From Larry & Norma Armes on 17-Mar-2018

  The personnel at this FBO are great! Promise was so helpful to me with advance planning from Canada. When we arrived at the FBO, Alexandra was talented at multi-tasking, and Promise and Melissa were so friendly and professional. Both on the ramp and inside, we were so impressed with Kerrie - she obviously sets the bar for customer service very high here - and she leads by shining example. The line crew guys are some of the most helpful, friendly and professional that we have encountered. Thanks Cutter and we can't wait to fly back to your KABQ location.
From Bill Gardner on 16-Mar-2018

  I've been flying through ABQ for years and always enjoy a stop at Cutter ABQ. We were oh a Las Vegas to New Orleans round trip. Currently, runway 8/26 is torn up, ATC handles things smoothly, and runway 21 arrival brought us right to Cutter, even though airliners busily arrived and departed with our Beech 33A. The line crew and CSR's at Cutter are THE best, and a quick turn was accomplished with ease and professionalism...Not to mention some fresh brownies for my passenger. Thanks Cutter!
From Matteo Mezzetti on 16-Mar-2018

  Awesome facility. Very nice and clean. A lot of areas to flight plan and relax. The staff is super friendly and willing to help with any questions or concerns you have. Will definitely be back here. -BKR (VFA-154)
From Adam Charles on 17-Oct-2017

  Stopped for Balloon Fiesta. Very helpful crew. Had my bags, took me to a local hotel, gave my 4-year-old son a wooden airplane and some goodies (after asking me if it was ok), which made his day. The whole experience was very easy, quick and painless. Definitely going back next year.
From Ed Cole on 19-Sep-2017

  Brought my Twin Commander in twice this month for one night layovers and fueling. As always, the Cutter folks were fantastic. Excellent service and friendly, helpful attitudes made the stops easy and enjoyable. I'll be back!
From Adam Broome on 12-Jul-2017

  My family stopped at Cutter Aviation in Albuquerque a couple of times this past week while traveling in our A36 Bonanza. I had also stopped there in my Bonanza a year ago while on the last legs of an around the world trip. What an outstanding FBO! On every occasion, all of the staff -- without exception -- have been welcoming, friendly and helpful in every way. This is a first-rate operation. I've found none better.
From Robert McMeekin on 26-Jun-2017

  Consistently outstanding service in every way! Called ahead, Alexandra provided info about fees, hangar, and transportation. Met by "follow-me" truck on arrival. Jeff & Seth got us parked and helped with bags. Leo arranged hotel/transportation. Jeff drove us to hotel. Next morning plane was pulled from hangar & fueled on time. Kerrie helped with loading. Remember Jeff & Kerrie from previous trips. Outstanding people made everything about visit go smoothly. Thank you!
From Steve Trieber on 25-Jun-2017

  Enroute from KCGZ to KEPM we had emergency landing at KABQ due to an extremely strong odor of fuel in the cabin. I cannot say enough good things about the way the emergency was handled by ATC, the staff at Cutter, airport fire department and airport operations manager. They were extremely helpful, courteous & professional. Everyone went beyond what was expected to help us out. The aircraft was cleaned up, repaired and in 2 hours we were on our way to KEPM. Kudos to ATC, the entire staff at Cutter, KABQ fire & the KABQ operations manager.
From Brock Benjamin on 18-May-2017

  I come here frequently and truly enjoy Cutter. They are reasonably priced, and provide probably the nicest service that I receive anywhere. One thing that isn't real important but provides a nice experience is that even when arriving in a BE-36 you get parked out front and they will move the plane, even when the ramp is full of jets. The important part of this point is not that I truly care about walking across a ramp (I'm a self serve 99% of the time person) its that they don't give me the -kick you to the curb feeling that you get at a lot of other FBOs. Thanks Leo keep up the good work.
From Thomas Lissner on 19-Mar-2017

  Absolutely the finest fuel stop for a quick turn when going west! We utilize Cutter monthly for refueling and there's no other FBO in the nation to compete with the speed and professionalism of these folks. Never have I spent over 20 mins on their ramp, the Jet truck is waiting when we taxi in and 3-4 line guys get the job done before we can even go to the bathroom. Fantastic.
From C Smith ATP CJ 525 on 14-Mar-2017

  My family has been in the FBO business approximately 40 yrs. And this is the way one should be run! Cutter and its employees run a first class operation, both on the ramp and inside the building. First rate! Highly recommend.
From Brock Benjamin on 20-Dec-2016

  Cutter ABQ is my favorite FBO. Whenever I go to ABQ I know it will painless and welcoming. From pulling you right up to the door. Having the car brought out to the plane and all of the other little things, they make it always pleasant to visit. Not to mention 100LL is reasonably priced. -brock
From Vernon Gatlin on 21-Nov-2016

  Jim at Cutter made phone calls for me after my girlfriend called him saying I'd be landing at 8PM. I arrived. HE HAD 2 Motel options waiting for me! Smoking at that! I went to restroom, came right out to van, and was driven to Nice Motel nearby with special rates for Cutter! Who does all that?? I tipped but a tip is not enough! THIS IS WHY I ALWAYS GO TO CUTTER!
From Ed Cole on 18-Sep-2016

  Great service, as always, at Cutter! Quick refueling, helped with bags to and from aircraft, and provide transportation to and from hotel. I'll be back!
From Robert Barnwell on 14-Jul-2016

  Flew in with grandkids, wife & friends for lunch and semi-quick turn in Twin Commander 1000. Linemen were very accommodating. Front desk was terrific. This place is all any FBO can be. Thanks! I'll be back.
From Shari Meyer on 29-Jun-2016

  Excellent service for a quick turn. Called Cutter 2 hours before I arrived and they were able to have some sandwiches waiting for me. Line and desk personnel were all attentive and professional.
From Tom Gresham on 28-Jun-2016

  Always good service at Cutter. The rental car was at the plane before I could climb down from the wing! When we returned, we had a minor mechanical issue. It was Saturday, with no mechanics on duty, but the front desk at Cutter found someone, and in 30 minutes, we were on our way.
