AVweb’s “FBO of the Week” contest is sponsored by Aviation Safety magazine, the monthly journal of risk management and accident prevention.
Thanks to all the pilots and AVweb readers who took time to nominate their favorite FBOs in our first-ever “FBO of the Week” contest. From nearly 50 nominations we’ve received since announcing the contest on Thursday, our first blue ribbon finds its target today.
AVweb’s first “FBO of the Week” ribbon is awarded to Wilson Air Center at KMEM in Memphis, Tennessee. Established in 1996 by the late Holiday Inn founder Kemmons Wilson, Wilson Air Center has been a consistent award-winner in the realm of FBOs and a consistent provider of outstanding service. Now it can add an AVweb “FBO of the Week” award to its many accolades.
Wilson Air Center was nominated (it turns out) by AVweb’s own Mike Busch, who (like all submitters who bring a winning FBO to our attention) will receive an official AVweb baseball cap. (Sorry, Mike, but that’s all you win — though we appreciate the surprise of seeing your name next to the winning submission!)
Nominate Your Favorite FBO
Keep those nominations coming. AVweb is actively seeking the best FBO’s in the country and another one, submitted by you, will be spotlighted here next Monday!
