I stayed with Cutter overnight last week. When I had asked on BeechTalk.Com which FBO to use at KABQ, the unanimous feedback was "Cutter". Now I understand why. Quick, friendly service, trying to help in any possible way. Got 20 lbs of free ice for my B-Kool on the morning of departure. I'll be back at KABQ this weekend and will use Cutter again.

Martin Pauly    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Great experience at Cutter Aviation ABQ on Friday August 12th. Radioed ahead to request fuel and a car to grab lunch and pick up our passengers in the area. Jim had the car ready and we were on our way in a few short minutes. Upon our return the correct amount of fuel had been dispensed, cold water bottles were offered along with the AOPA discount on Avgas and we were on our way. Ramp fee waived with the 20 gal minimum purchase. Jim and Cutter made this a very smooth trip and got us out on schedule and home to Spicewood, TX before dark. Thanks! We will be back!

Brian Bobb    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Top-notch experience on a quick turn. Great facilities, great service.

Mac Tichenor    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Absolutely the place to be at ABQ. All great service with a smile. Hangar, car, fuel, etc. I shall return.

Gerald Blank    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Arrived for first time use since 1994! Jet was promptly met by line personnel and quickly fueled for a departure. After paying for fuel, decided to grab some lunch and counter personnel recommended DION's. Crew car, excellent directions and on our way to great lunch. All personnel provided excellent customer service! As needed, we will return for fuel and service on our cross-country trips.

John Keller    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I needed to overnight at ABQ on a cross-country flight in my Carbon Cub and a friend suggested that I use Cutter (typical word of mouth recommendation). Wow, I'm glad I did! Everyone there from the line guys, to the front desk staff, to the shuttle driver was very genuine and helpful. Usually a staff at a company like this is inconsistent, there are goods staff members and bad so it is just luck what you get, but I very impressed with the consistency of Cutter's staff in terms of both attitude and service. Cutter will be my go-to FBO in the future without question I highly recommend them!

Randy Lervold    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Stopped through Cutter with a Piper Pacer on an overnight, but ended up staying for two days because of starting problems. Everyone was very helpful in getting great hotel rates and rides to and from the Best Western (also very nice) and eventually the airline terminal for the way out.

Trace Lewis    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I'm writing to thank you for the outstanding service we received upon our arrival at Cutter Albuquerque on June 30, 2015. Our rental car from Hertz was brought to the plane and stocked with cold bottles of water. The passenger transition from plane to car was quick and efficient. We had been traveling in the heat of the middle of the day and the rental car A/C was on high and the chilled water was much appreciated. Everyone worked together to make my passengers happy. It made me look better for having chosen your FBO.

Russell Gervase    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Just stopped at KABQ overnight, and the experience with Cutter Aviation was excellent. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Will use them again.

John Ariko    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

As with any Cutter location, they have an army of line workers, great CSRs, and nice facilities. Very easy transition with the car pulled up to the plane for passengers, and a courtesy ride for pilot to air terminal. Great service and will be back.

Zac Armstrong    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

We have stopped here at nearly every one of our sixteen crossings of the United States coast-to-coast. They are very focused on customer service and even stepping out of a little four-seater piston single we were treated like we were going to drop ten grand on jet fuel. They loaned us a crew car to run to dinner and pick out a hotel and then drove us over to the hotel. The plane was fueled and pulled up in the morning as requested. The past few years the ramp had gotten very rough and we were happy to see this year that it was brand new concrete.

Colin Summers    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Diverted here due to weather. Was able to arrange for a rental car on short notice and it was waiting for us when we finally arrived. They arranged for a hotel for us when we returned with the rental car the night before our departure and shuttled us to and from the hotel.

Ted Louis Glenn    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

From the front desk, line crew and management Cutter Aviation rolled out the red carpet for our 5 day stay. The best customer service and support we've experienced in a very long time. Thank you Cutter Aviation!

Howard Quoyeser    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Arrived at 9 p.M. June 24. Met by line personnel promptly, receptionist found hotel despite major athletic event in city, gave ride there and back next morning. Aircraft hangared because of strong winds (38g50) and brought out as scheduled. Needed hydraulic fluid and mechanic obliged without charge. Cutter is not cheap but there is no better service anywhere.

John D. Lyon    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Cutter in ABQ is a real class act. I recently flew my Piper Archer into ABQ for a fuel stop along my planned route but ended up spending the night due to bad wx. Cutter literally rolled out the red carpet for us. I was treated like I taxied onto the ramp in a Gulfstream. They gave us rides to a restaurant and hotel and had the plane ready and fueled for our morning departure as well as cleaned our dirty windshield without asking. A special word to Ben, Seth and Chelsea on the line for going WAY above and beyond to serve us.

Kevin Bondy    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I echo all the superlatives commented by other pilots. Chantel went far beyond the call of duty to make local arrangements including loaning one of their offices for an important meeting. Cutter is a truly first-class operation.

Robert Beverly    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Still great service. 25 Cents per gallon discount for AOPA members (make sure you have your membership card). Overnight fee is now $20 per night with the first night waived with fuel purchase.

Ted Louis Glenn    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Flew through last week on a round trip to Arizona. Rolling in a piston single - stopped at Cutter KABQ both ways. Wife likes to bring the pooch on the longer trips. Karrie at Cutter was awesome! Literally brought out the red carpet, water and treats for the dog. Counter staff is super nice; linemen are super fast! Not our first time here, and certainly won't be the last. Thanks Cutter, you're still our favorite FBO!

Tom Newman    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

My experience at Cutter ABQ last week was great. The day before arriving I clicked on the Cutter website link on AirNav and was offered a web chat with a service advisor. They quickly arranged everything for our stay, including rental car and a nice discount at the Hotel Andaluz (great boutique hotel downtown!). When we arrived late on Wednesday, they brought the car right up to the Cirrus and gave us directions to the hotel. The next day, the airplane was already filled up as requested and we got an AOPA avgas discount. Hat's off to the service team of Chantel, Kerrie, and Elizabeth and the line crew at Cutter ABQ!

Mark Donnelly    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Thank you for the great service yesterday at ABQ and helping us make our Angel Flight mission from SDL to ABQ, a success and a pleasant experience... You folks are the best!!

R Dhawan    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

My hat is off to Jim a CSR at Cutter. I decided to stop overnight in ABQ for weather due to weather concerns, He recommended to me a hotel, got a room for me at the Cutter rate, and drove me to the hotel. He said that either he or another CSR would pick me up in the morning and I can get back on my way home. These people are real class. Cutter has my unqualified endorsement.

Daniel N. Gordon    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

So I flew into Cutter in my more-than-humble 1947 Ercoupe and parked next to a Lear. Yikes! But you know what? The staff treated me like a king! They literally brought out the red carpet (but then didn't know where to put it because Ercoupes don't have obvious doors if you've never seen one before). It was a hot day, and my teenage son appreciated being handed a bottle of cold water right off the bat. The linemen--and linewoman--were helpful and friendly, as was the front desk staff both in the evening and the following morning. It didn't faze anyone that I only needed a few gallons of gas, and they found hangar space for me for the night, including locating a cord for my pre-heater. The next morning my plane was on the line and ready for me right at the requested time. The facilities are very good, with every thing you could want, with fast Internet and comfy chairs; but I found it was the Cutter people who really made the difference. They were extraordinary.

William Dubois    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I was recently at Cutter at ABQ and PHX. My home base is ILG in Delaware. I am a CCA Member. Stayed at PHX for 4 days and ABQ for 6 days. Aircraft is a Premier 1A, N103SK. Had Enterprise rental car at each location. My total experience at each location was great. FBO personnel were great. I wanted to let you know this. Thank you.

David Roeberg    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Always a great experience and superior service. Thanks to the line guys Mark, Roberto, and Andrew for prompt and efficient fueling.

Scott Stefanov    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I flew into KABQ last week in a light twin, stayed a couple nights, and had first class service from all. Jessi and Crew are always some of the best in the business. If you stop in KABQ, stop at Cutter!

David L. Couch    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

This is a great FBO! The professionalism and the customer service we received were second to none. Chelsea and Shawn thank you for all that you did for our passengers and us. We will definitely be coming back to Cutter when we're in Albuquerque.

Andrew Runyan    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Always a 'best of' fuel stop for our needs. Great service from entire staff. Rental car brought to us plane-side for luggage and pax access. Thanks. CAA contract fuel here for turbine ships as ours. Merlin N307PA thanks entire cast here.

Kent Magnuson    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Stopped for night 11/19/15. Met by follow-me truck. 2 line guys offered to help with bags. CSRs offered help with hotel reservation and courtesy transportation. Aircraft fueled and up front ready to go on time next morning. Thank you, Grant, Elizabeth, Kerrie who made everything about this stop first class. We'll be back.

Robert McMeekin    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Kerrie and Chantel went out of their way to make us feel valued even though we were the only a single engine Cessna among the heavy corporate iron.

R. Richmond    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Been into a couple of Cutter Aviations. All have been good, but the folks here at ABQ are exceptional!

Shell Hodgson    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Arrived here in a Mooney for a quick turn fuel stop. We were met immediately by smiling faces and a can-do attitude. Excellent customer service and a great facility in general. I will definitely be back to this FBO. Thanks!

David Lincoln    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Pleasant and personable FBO even for a single engine prop. Provided free shuttle van ride to local hotel and had my plane up front and ready for departure with 30-minute notice. Waived one-day ramp fee for fuel purchase. Loved watching the military jets come and go. Will be back.

Kelvin Crezee    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Was here again last weekend. Same good service and fuel discount for AOPA members.

Louis Glenn    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

My experience with Cutter at KABQ has been consistently excellent. I stopped last week in my Bonanza going from California to Oklahoma, and stopped again coming back. Everyone was friendly and helpful from the counter staff to line staff. They give a 25-cent discount on fuel prices with an AOPA card and waived all fees, including overnight fee, because of my fuel purchase. Super friendly, helpful and easy to deal with. Give Cutter a try.

Peter Tracy    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Made an inflight decision to divert here. Despite my unexpected arrival I received the same great service I've received in the past. The plane was refueled before I even stepped inside the building. They found me a hotel room at a really good rate and shuttled me over. My AOPA membership resulted in a fuel discount and the first night's fees were waived.

Ted Glenn    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Transponder went out on the way to ABQ. Cutter's avionics shop got it right in, handled all the warrantee stuff with Garmin and installed a loaner until mine got back from Garmin. They were very prompt and I would highly recommend them.

Chad Nuttall    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Recently flew into Cutter at ABQ to provide transportation for a Wounded Warrior who was confined to a wheelchair. The staff at Cutter rolled out the "red carpet" for the wounded vet and his family and the airplane crew. They supplied a forklift to load the vet into the cargo door of the Pilatus. This FBO supports vets and I highly recommend their service. Friendly staff, nice environment, lounge and good cookies!!

Doug Abney    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I had several special requests today to do my test work on a G650. We needed two fuel trucks fully fueled to refuel to the weight we needed. Everything was handled professionally and expediously. A great FBO in my last 17 years of stopping there. Thanks.

Tom Horne    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

The line service was excellent. From help with the bags to the cars to the little things, I was glad to have Matt and his team there for professional, attentive help.

Chris Curran    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Great FBO! Have used several times since May for fuel. They have it down right. Nice FBO facilities too.

Donald Thompson    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Excellent service. Chelsea met my plane yesterday, grabbed my bags out of the plane and put them in my rental car, which was waiting on the ramp, and wouldn't let me dump my own trash. They asked that I call ahead today and they would pull my plane to the front of the ramp and when I called and spoke to Adam, they had already done it. Cutter ABQ knows service and everyone is on the same page. They continue to impress! Thanks.

Rod McDermott    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Flew into ABQ on a DA-40 for an overnight layover with my wife and dog. Staff at Cutter were awesome! Had treats and water for the pooch, gave us a ride to the hotel and picked us up in the morning. Plane was already pulled up, fueled and even had the red carpet laid out. Treated us first class, even though we came in a light single. Will definitely be back!

Tom Newman    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Flew in and out of Cutter Aviation , Albuquerque on Friday March 27th. The line service was very prompt. I repeated the trip Sunday March 29th and was in and out in a flash. I really appreciate the great service.

Russell Gervase    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

We made a spur of the moment decision to overnight here on our way back from the Midwest due to weather and timing. Same great service even on short notice and even without a reservation. Fees waived with minimum fuel purchase and an AOPA member discount too.

Ted Louis Glenn    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Even though it was only a Cherokee they were servicing, the service was excellent. We parked up front, they towed it away, and when we came back in the morning, they had pulled it back up front for us and had it ready to roll! Extremely good service, couldn't have been better...

R.J.    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I've used Cutter at other airports in the past and the same great service was provided at this location. For a Cessna 182 the ramp fee is $20 and the overnight tiedown fee is $10 per night. The ramp fee and the first night's tiedown is waived with a 20 gallon fuel purchase. AOPA members receive a 25-cent discount per gallon.

Ted Louis Glenn    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Great service, very friendly, and all around great FBO. Had my plane ramped right on time with fuel. Will use them again.

Jason Talley    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I was in again this past weekend and as usual I received great service. Parked out front when I arrived and the plane was put out front again before I returned. AOPA fuel discount still in effect.

Ted Glenn    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Thanks for taking such good care of us regulars (Lifeguard 10 from KROW). We fly in several times per week and really appreciate the quality service.

Eric Allen    KABQ   

We flew in on Thursday April 9th and radio'd from 80 miles out that we needed fuel but wanted to see if someone could get us some sandwiches for the flight to SoCal directly after fuel. When we landed, the sandwiches were there, fuelers were ready and we were on our way in short order. Best service of nearly any FBO out there, and great attitudes. Thanks Cutter ABQ.

Rod McDermott    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

I have visited Cutter at ABQ several times during the past year. The line staff know exactly how to handle my Eclipse (which makes sense, since Eclipse Aerospace is right next door!). The front desk staff are friendly and competent. Really an exemplary operation.

Gordon Feingold    KABQ - Albuquerque, NM   

Another great Cutter FBO. Line crew handled us very efficiently even though they had an Airbus to service and load at the same time. Customer service got us a good hotel deal and arranged courtesy transportation. Thank you!
