AVweb's "FBO of the Week" ribbon goes to Cirrus Aviation at McMinnville Municipal Airport (KMMV) in McMinnville, Oregon).
Reader Daryl Medd (and several other members of the organization) told us how Cirrus Aviation stepped up to make the 2013 Cessna Pilots Society gathering a smooth, trouble-free celebration:
The fine folks at Cirrus Aviation were there making sure all the details were taken care of, ensuring that our Cessna Pilots Society gathering was perfect. Rabbits were pulled from hats when we had last-minute, unforseeable requests. There was even home baking! These are great people who have earned your business, and you haven't even met them yet. Walking distance to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, where you can visit Howard Hughes's HK-1 Hercules!
Robert L. Burns wins this week by combining two of our favorite elements, air to air photography and great historic aircraft. That's a Beech AT-11 Kansan on its way to the annual Beech Party in Winchester, Tennessee.

The editors at Aviation Consumer magazine want to know about your engine overhaul experience and the experience you had dealing with the shop. We'd appreciate you taking a couple of minutes to answer these questions. Take the survey here: http://engineshopsurvey2017.questionpro.com
