Our story

William P. Cutter founded Cutter Flying Service Inc. in Albuquerque, NM in 1928 to serve a fledgling aviation community in the Southwestern United States. One of the first FBOs in the country—built only two years after the Air Commerce Act of 1926—Cutter Flying Service survived the Great Depression and World War II by providing the air charter services needed for reaching ranches, towns, and businesses scattered across the rugged landscape of New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas.

Cutter Flying Service also offered aircraft sales, line and fuel services to transient pilots as a Phillips 66 Aviation fuel dealer beginning in 1938, and aircraft maintenance to support the growing number of aircraft in the Southwest. In the post-war years and decades that followed, Cutter continued to grow, expanding west and becoming known internationally as the premier aircraft sales and services provider in the Southwest.
