  Haven't been into Gary in about 5 years, but the ease of flying into there, and the service provided by Gary Jet Center remains first-rate! Dennis is indeed the man. Somehow remembered that we were from Arkansas. Great way to get into Downtown Chicago.
From Steve McCabe on 20-Jun-2019

  Gary Jet Center was very professional and provided excellent service for us on a family weekend trip into Chicago. Cynthia at the front desk took great care & pride in making sure our rental vehicle was ready and perfect for our trip. Cruz in the maintenance dept really helped with an airplane issue we had on our inbound flight to help ensure we were able to get home on Sunday. The whole staff was friendly and willing to help with anything we needed. Absolute '10' and thanks for helping make our weekend great.
From Ray Van Den Langenbergh on 06-Mar-2019

  This is by far the most pleasant experience I ever had at any FBO. Since just a friend and I traveling to COLD Chicago I took my little A36 to Gary and visited the Gary Jet Center. First of all I flew in from Florida, snow expected and temperatures in the single digits while we were staying there for 8 days I wanted a hangar. Hangar rate was VERY reasonable (less than parking our rental at the Hyatt). Dennis Montgomery the line specialist let us bring our luggage into the heated hangar upon departure do the preflight and sit in he plane before opening the hangar and towing us onto the ramp ready to start. Cynthia Polk at the front desk was just amazing, pleasant, and so very sweet! All in all an amazing experience for our little N97GW, we felt like jet setters and will for sure come back to here on future trips! OUTSTANDING!!!! Thank YOU Gary Crew! You all were just the best!

  Cindy Polk and Dennis Montgomery were excellent service folks. Both individuals did an outstanding job for the crew and passengers. Very helpful with rental Cars and great Hangar service with bad weather as we put our Aircraft in the Hangar during our stay. The Jet Center is a very nice FBO. I have flown for over 35 years in Corporate Aviation.
From James Bradley on 11-Oct-2018

  I returned this week to Gary Jet Center after several years. Wow, what an impressive new facility. But even more, their old service attitude remains. Particularly Dennis Montgomery, one of their line specialists, had a service attitude so great that I will return again and again, whenever business takes me to Chicago. From a ride to the train station, making sure I got on the train, picking me up on my return, putting my plane in the hangar because of thunderstorms with my having to ask, what more can I say. Plus quicker ins/outs than any other Chicago airport and much more cost effective fuel prices. KGYY and the Gary Jet Center are terrific.
From Chris Loemker on 18-Sep-2018

  Great facilities, outstanding line service. Dennis is the man, the myth, the legend.
From Mitchell Wilson on 28-Aug-2018

  As a local part 91 operator, we make weekly stops at KGYY's Jet Center for fuel and pilot breaks. Gary Jet center offers exceptional service and state of the art facilities that keep us coming back. Hot coffee in the winter, cold waters in the summer, and comfortable accommodations year round!

  Dennis Montgomery is the best Line Specialist I have ever met. He makes you feel like you are family at the Gary Jet Center as do each of the other people with whom I have had contact at GJC. Today, a busy day with the Air Force Thunderbirds and support personnel at GJC, he took time out to show my grandson the time of his life. I wish all FBO's were this good. Above and beyond. Every time.
From Chris Martin on 26-Jul-2018

  Really like the new FBO! Everyone here is fantastic! Dennis and Cynthia have always gone the extra mile to help us out. Thanks!
From Kieran Jennings on 24-Jul-2018

  All of the folks at Gary Jet Center were very friendly and accommodating. Shining brightest was Dennis who met me in my 182 like I came in on Gulfstream. It was promising to be a hot day so he pulled it into the shade of the hangar so that the plane was cool and I preflighted in the comfort! Small airport personality and pricing with first rate services to handle any customer. Gary is my go to airport coming into Chicago.
From Doug Jones on 25-Jun-2018

  One of the best FBO's in the country. The staff goes out of their way to help you. Reasonable fuel prices and parking fees, beautiful facility and they will give you a ride to the train station and the South Shore Line will take you into the heart of the Loop on Chicago in under an hour. I always stop here on my transcontinental trips.
From John Robertson on 06-Jun-2018

  Gary Jet Center is a great FBO! Everyone there provides excellent service, especially Dennis Montgomery. We flew into KGYY for a week in Chicago, the staff at Gary Jet Center could not have been nicer or more helpful. They took us and picked us up at the train station and always had our plane ready when requested. They are the best FBO that we have visited!
From T. Turner on 25-Apr-2018

  Great service! Friendly Staff! Nice facility!
From Kenny Wilson on 30-Mar-2018

  While stopping overnight in Gary, Indiana on a cross country Cirrus SR22 trip, I experienced probably the nicest FBO in the USA! Wow! I'm impressed! (& they have awards to show for it) The FBO is huge and brand new, but way more important was the amazing customer service from Gary Jet Center's staff. Dennis helped me with transportation needs more than once, Cynthia and Simone are super friendly and treated this piston pilot like a G5 owner. Their crew lounges are great and they even have a new, championship ping pong table to pass the time. 1 stop here & like me, you may just go out of your way to include Gary Jet Center for your next fuel stop or layover for business in Chicago.
From Jeffrey Kyff on 18-Mar-2018

  Wonderful new facility. Clean, modern, spacious, welcoming. Friendly staff, very customer service oriented. Enjoyed my visit. I'll be back. Many thanks to Chauncey, Cynthia and their staff. Easy low traffic alternative to Chicago's busy airfields. EASY, fast and CHEAP access to the South shore Rail to Millennium station at the foot of the miracle mile/Michigan Ave. Friendly helpful conductors a pleasure to deal with. If you need and alternate use KSBN. Same rail line starts there and ends at Millennium station in Chicago.
From Gordon Feingold on 19-Feb-2018

  I've been a happy customer for a while now, but last week was my first time in their brand new FBO facility. All I can say is WOW! It's gorgeous, huge, plush, and has everything a pilot or passenger could want, including private relaxation rooms. Service was, as always, impeccable and prompt, and pricing is much better than Midway. If you're headed to Chicago, this is the place to go.
From Tod Peavy on 12-Nov-2017

  Some of the most helpful and friendliest people in aviation. A most stop when going to Chicago and they will save you money on fuel and fees!
