If you fly private into KFXE (Fort Lauderdale Executive), there is no better FBO than Banyan. The facilities are incredible, the pilot shop is legendary, the restaurant next door on the field is always good (and packed!) and they just treat you wonderfully. I have been going there for almost a decade now and have had too many great experiences to list, but I will give you one from just 3 days ago!

I came into KFXE from MDPC (Punta Cana, where I run a fractional ownership program), and prior to take off I did my normal pre-flight and found both engines below minimums on oil. Unfortunately upon arrival I had to move pretty fast and didn't have a chance to wait for the oil to settle to see where the levels were properly, so I was left with little choice: I had to add oil.

I landed at KFXE and was set to depart a few days later. During my next pre-flight, the oil levels had crept up (my fault!) and now I had no choice but to reduce the oil levels (or risk damaging two $170,000 engines). The line crew got maintenance over right away, and Curtis (supervisor there) came over himself to pop the filter out for me so we could drain some oil (which is a giant pain in the ass to do yourself!).

We perfected the levels and then I asked him to put it on my account. He said "Don't worry about it, we know you have been coming here for years...thanks for the business!"

Words can hardly describe the best FBO in the world...except for one: BANYAN!
