Waterford, Mich., – Two of aviation’s leading and most-respected publications, Aviation International News (AIN) and Professional Pilot, report that Pentastar Aviation has again proven its business model is world class by being voted in the top percentile of fixed based operations by their readers.

The AIN 2015 survey of FBO services rated Pentastar Aviation among the top 10 percent of FBO businesses in the Western Hemisphere. This is an annual distinction over the last decade in which Pentastar Aviation customers have recognized the company’s world-class services and placed it in the top percentile.

Professional Pilot magazine’s 2015 PRASE (Preferences Regarding Aviation Services and Equipment) Survey similarly recognized Pentastar Aviation. The company was ranked fourth-best independent FBO and the sixth-best U.S. FBO overall, again a distinction that has placed it in the top 10 for the past 10 years.

The high ratings and recognition from both of these surveys remain consistent with the company’s commitment to exceed industry standards for both safety and service excellence.

“This is a highly competitive business, so getting resounding approval like this from our customers is very gratifying to us,” said Greg Schmidt, President & CEO, Pentastar Aviation. “It results from the fact that we’ve always been focused on delivering industry-leading customer service, which is undoubtedly the most critical factor in our operation’s success.”
