The facility has a pair of new 5,000-gallon jet-A tankers and two 750-gallon avgas trucks that distribute fuel from the tank farm.

While all FBOs say that going the extra mile for the customer is their number-one priority, some–such as the Sonoma Jet Center (SJC)–will go to notable lengths to prove it, as the crew of a private jet that landed at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport facility discovered last year, when they missed their outbound commercial flight. The passenger and jet were going to remain in the area for a number of days, but the crew was headed home and the private flight arrived too late for the crew to catch the first leg of their trip home.

Despite the mild winter that befell most of North America this past year, one might be excused for believing one of the few areas not to experience a severe decline in de-icing demand to be Vancouver, British Columbia. After all, the Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort (host to the 2010 Winter Olympics) just 70 miles away received 45 feet of snow this past season. Yet at Vancouver’s Boundary Bay Airport (CZBB), unseasonable weather prevailed. “In terms of winters, it’s been a wet one, but it hasn’t been a cold one,” said Lyle Soetaert, the manager of the airport’s FBO, Boundary Bay Air Services.
