FBO of the Week: Bode Aero (KAEG, Albuquerque, New Mexico)
Our latest "FBO of the Week" ribbon goes to Bode Aero at Double Eagle II Airport (KAEG) in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
AVweb reader Eve Cascella told us that, "in a nutshell, my experience with Bode Aviation left me feeling very well taken care of and encouraged to know that there are still people out there who go out of their way to serve." How did they do that for Eve? Here's her rundown of the visit:
A friend and I had made plans to fly in from St. Louis to enjoy the annual Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. I had called Bode Aero a month or so before the Fiesta to ask for advice on finding a hotel room; I was afraid I had missed my opportunity to secure a room during this busy week ... but got way more than I hoped for. Bode offered to make my room reservation for me, and they also reserved a rental car for me — both at reasonable rates. ... On the morning we departed, Bode had pulled our plane out of the tie-down area, and she was waiting for us up front by the FBO. Departure was a breeze. However, I realized somewhere in central Kansas that I had left my cell phone somewhere at Bode Aero. I should have guessed: Renee had already found it, determined it was mine, looked up my home phone number in St. Louis on the internet, and left me a voicemail there saying that she would mail me my phone if I would please call to confirm my address. How much more can you ask for?! Thank you, Renee, Nikki, and all the others I can't name for helping to make our stay in Albuquerque such a pleasant memory!
