AVweb's latest "FBO of the Week" is Brunswick County Airport at Cape Fear Regional Jetport/Howie Franklin Field Airport (KSUT) in Oak Island, North Carolina.

Reader Ron Horton had high praise for the FBO:

Flew to KSUT for an overnight stay. Greeted by John and the ground crew as soon as the engine stopped and immediately felt at home. They tied us down, guided us to the FBO, where we found a friendly airport dog lounging on the couch and several locals planning the next day's "Big Toys" event, which included Young Eagle flights. They offered a crew car, but since we were overnight we opted for an inexpensive rental; the desk is right there with the FBO. Asked them to refuel at their convenience and left the airport.

Got back the next day and realized we left our Nflight cam running after we landed, so we got to review how they moved our airplane to the pumps for refueling and then moved it back to the tiedown spot. It looked like they were handing their personal airplane!

The next day we departed in the middle of a line of planes, taking those Young Eagles up for an aerial view of the North Carolina coast. This is not just the kind of FBO you want to have for your stops; this is one that makes you wish you were based here!
