“There are many factors that customers judge an FBO by, but it’s the people that make real difference” noted Will Cutter, President and CEO of Cutter Aviation.  “We’re proud of the passion, professionalism and loyalty of our teams in Phoenix and all of our locations around the Southwest – they are all winners in our opinion!”

Flight crews certainly had the opportunity to experience the award-winning service at Cutter Aviation Phoenix Sky Harbor as the airport itself also ranked as one of the Top 40 Busiest Airports for Business Aviation in the Americas in the #22 position; a rating that excludes commercial airline activity.  This high ranking for PHX illustrates the importance of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and businesses like Cutter Aviation Phoenix in contributing to the economic health of the city and business growth and support throughout the Phoenix Metro area.  Cutter Aviation was originally founded in 1928 in Albuquerque, NM and remains America’s oldest continually family owned and operated FBO network.  Cutter Aviation opened its facility at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in 1959 and has proudly served the airport and community for over 52 years.
