Their phone system is a maze of menus that go to dead lines or voicemail. The manager didn't return my call. The "Fuel Desk" answers but they are unable to arrange rental cars or do much else. The rental car companies are under the impression Altoona Flight Service will arrange rental cars and will not deliver cars to the airport unless Altoona Flight Service makes the arrangements. The entire operation is run by a sole teenage boy with a bad attitude, he told me he used to arrange rentals but stopped because it was too much work. This is not a beehive of activity. I brought in five passengers who needed to conduct business in the local area and this FBO was no assistance. All this for 70 dollars. It would be better if it was unattended. Avoid.
Response from Vincent Mojta, President, Altoona Flight Services The phone system was reconfigured and is working properly now. Thank you for your patience.

Flew in on a Saturday in August for a two night stay and was disappointed. I left a message at 5:15pm on their fuel line to top off my Seneca and when I arrived at 8am the next morning they said they didn't have a fuel order. The lineman did quickly fuel me up and when I went to pay the bill had a landing fee and a $100 dollar parking fee!!!! ($50 per night) I think that is excessive for a Seneca. Now I know why the ramp was empty on a Saturday in the summer.

Stopped in today in our Cardinal and we had great service. They suggested Mamie's in town for breakfast and let us use the courtesy car. What a place! It is basically a bakery that serves great breakfasts and it was busy. We ended up buying donuts to go as well but I won't be able to try them for a day or two because I will still be full from breakfast.
From Edward Figuli
Very nice facility. Was met quickly by the line crew and the plane gassed up for the flight home. Nice open ramp for parking. The restaurant is now open again in the hangar but I think it is only for lunch and dinner. Nonetheless the food was good and the views awesome. Will stop again.

From Keith Dorken
Great service for fuel and stop; departing IFR had some help from a practicing pilot who voluntarily held with Johnstown to let us out. Note restaurant is again closed....

Stopped in for fuel for the morning's flights. Dave and his crew were outstanding. Great line services. They recommended the newly reopened Cove Grill previously Kitty Hawk and the breakfast was excellent. With Dave at the helm, IG is a really nice FBO to stop and visit.

Stopped for fuel about 6:15pm on 7/30/2017. Line guy was very helpful and FBO looks new. FBO needs snack and soda machines. I'll stop there again.
