  Excellent! E-mailed from the plane 30 mins out and were greeted by a follow-me truck. Ben assisted us with our luggage and kept us company while we were waiting for our ride. Upon returning the next day, Milton did the same as we prepared to depart. Great service, would visit again.

  Flew in for a ballgame and was treated like royalty. Everyone from the line personnel to the ladies behind the desk was the greatest. I will visit them again! They even offered me ice cream!
From Randy Weakley on 18-Jul-2019

  My most recent visit, 17 July 2019 started in the early morning and finished in the evening with a day off in the middle. The CSR's and line staff during both times was knowledgeable and professional with our passengers. We fueled upon landing and then promptly left to enter our rest period. Upon our return to the airport April had my fuel ticket and receipt waiting for me to pick up. The afternoon CSR's were quite engaging, after some good fun I ended up on the naughty list, but I did get my ice cream. All in fun of course, thanks for another great visit.
From Eric Hazen on 04-Jan-2019

  What a great experience! It started with a very friendly and helpful person on the phone. Then an excellent rate on rental car, no-hassle arrival (thanks, ATC!). Met us on the ramp with a luggage cart, loaded it all into the rental car and sent us off. 10 minutes and we were on the road. Fees very reasonable. $15 to park overnight but first night waived with 10 gal fuel along with the ramp fee. Departure just as nice; plane was nearby but they drove us out in a courtesy van with umbrellas and helped out. All this for a beat-up '86 Archer! Couple of notes -- there's a clearance delivery phone in the pilot briefing room... Get your clearance inside where it's warm before venturing out to the plane. Be on the ball for arrival and departure, as you'll be stuck on one of the 3 simultaneously operating parallel runways.
From Juan Infante on 06-Oct-2018

  My five-star review echoes the other reviews before mine. I flew in a Piper Dakota and was met by the "follow-me" golf cart. My plane was chocked, and personnel (thanks Gavin!) helped take our luggage on a cart to the FBO. The car rental process could not have been easier. My baggage was taken to the car rental. When I came back 3 days later, I found ***no surprise fees*****!!! In fact, my 55 gallons of fuel got a lot of the day and night parking fees waived. I could not be more satisfied with my experience. Although at first glance one might be tempted to go to smaller airport FBOs, the experience of flying into Bravo and the overall value of the great service of this FBO and lack of surprises make me want to come back during my next time to Charlotte, and I do not feel at all tempted to try anything else.

  Great experience at Wilson - flew here Friday night for a Panthers football game in our Cherokee. We were 5 minutes late getting there to get the taxi we reserved, but Wilson let them know for us that we were running just a few minutes behind. It seems so out of the ordinary nowadays to see an FBO at an airport this large that doesn't charge _any_ fees for staying a few hours with a modest fuel purchase (which itself isn't anywhere near as overpriced as it is at many other Class B airports). I wish those other FBOs would take some lessons from Wilson. Thanks again!
From Robert McMeekin on 29-Jul-2018

  WOW! I've been to lots of FBO's that provided outstanding service, but Wilson tops them all. Pleasant and efficient, never had to ask for anything. Follow-us met us, parked by line guy, crew bus and 2 guys with baggage cart when we opened door. Relaxing lobby. CSR appeared anytime one of us stood up. CSR's everywhere, uncanny attention to details. Ice cream for son. Did I mention efficient. Wow is the only way to describe our experience. Thank you.
From David Beaman on 09-Jul-2018

  Wilson is the best FBO, bar none! They are friendly and informative on the phone. They are professional and nice on the ramp. The folks inside are great. And their ramp fees are quite reasonable.... In my case in my Tiger, $10 or purchase 10 gallons. I chose to put 20 gallons for reasons mentioned. I have been to Wilson in Memphis and Hobby with equal results. I'll add that the ATC was excellent working me in and out with the big boys...
From Juergen Klicker on 30-May-2018

  I stopped by to pick up a passenger arriving commercially. At the time my Mooney was the only plane on the ramp with a prop. Due to W&B all I could take was 12gal of fuel. That did the trick for Wilson Air Center to waive the fees. My passenger got picked up at the AA terminal and we received top-notch service.
From Michael Carey on 22-Jan-2018

  A great experience with exceptional service. Flew in Thanksgiving Day with the family for a 2-night stay. All CSRs and line personal were very pleasant and helpful. The cost? $6.11 per gallon plus they charged $15 for only one night. The ramp and first night fees were waived with fuel purchase. Show me another class B FBO that does that! PS - with a quick call ahead, they took care of all rental car details as well. If you are visiting Charlotte, this is the place to go. Can't wait to visit again!
From Mark Tysinger on 30-Nov-2017

  I almost never post a review but Wilson is so exceptional that I am compelled to do so. "Follow me" car met us. Line person held the door with a huge smile. Rental pulled up with our name on car. Nice facility and everyone exemplifies southern charm. Big time airport (CLT) and fuel under $5.00 a gallon 5 Stars!!!
From Eddie Esserman on 18-Aug-2017

  What a great FBO! Surprisingly friendly small airport feel, for a major airport. Bus at a Bonanza before I got off the wing, and a bus ride back for less than a hundred step walk! A welcome break from the attitude of most large airport FBO's these days. Thanks Team Wilson.
From Thomas Bowen on 24-Jun-2017

  I few my Cherokee 6-300 to Wilson Air for a two day business trip. I was treated with perfect service. First night fee waived with fill up. Second night $15, as advertised.
From Ray Bengen on 06-Feb-2017

  Wilson is going to be very fortunate to have Miss India join them as a CSR. I experienced her work ethic and customer relations skills when I had an emergency late in the evening in Charleston Intl., and I would simply suggest to Wilson that she be used to train their CSR's as she's an extraordinary skilled people-facing professional, and would be wasted just sitting at a front desk..
