AVweb's "FBO of the Week" ribbon goes to Cook Aviation at Monroe County Airport (KBMG) in Bloomington, Indiana.
AVweb reader Paul Johnson told us about Cook recently and how they've worked with him to make some memorable visits:
As a student pilot, I've had the pleasure of visiting Cook Aviation twice on cross-country flights. My daughter and grandson live in Bloomington, so it's an added benefit to visit them. Both times, the folks at Cook have been extremely friendly and helpful. The first time, they loaned us a very nice Cadillac, and more recently [they] offered me a newer SUV.
On my last visit, I had hoped to have my grandson and a couple of his playmates meet us at the airport to see Grandpa's plane. I called Cook to see if that would be a problem and was assured that they would work with us to have our group of toddlers visit safely. They followed through, and the kids had a blast. I earned some "cool grandpa" points with that vist, along with my solo cross-country check-off.
To top it off, their fuel prices are much less than home. There's no question that when we come back to Bloomington to visit, we'll be coming back to Cook. And did I mention the fresh baked cookies?
