FBO of the Week: Atlantic Aviation (Republic Airport, Farmingdale, New York)
AVweb's latest "FBO of the Week" ribbon goes to Atlantic Aviation at Republic Airport (KFRG) in Farmingdale, New York.
AVweb readers Jeffrey and Lisa Chipetine recently pulled some long hours flying rescued dogs to their new homes for Pilots N Paws — and the staff at Atlantic were more than happy to help in their journey. Jeffrey and Lisa write:
The fellows on the line made sure we were all safe [humans and dogs alike] by escorting the receiving vehicle onto the tarmac and ensuring everyone was kept clear during the transfer. As Atlantic Aviation hosts GA traffic that includes jets and turbines as well as prop aircraft, this was an important consideration. The line staff even helped disassemble the crates and load the (stubby tail-wagging) animals into the SUV belonging to the couple receiving the dogs. We all shared a good moment that night, each of us having a part in sending those terrific dogs onto the next leg in their journey towards a better life. Those animals likely got more rubs and hugs that evening than they had ever received, and they sure returned the love. ... We taxied back to our tiedown feeling a little better about answering a call from those two small voices.
