  Recently visited, nice experience. Friendly and helpful staff. I had asked them to tow my plane up closer to the building for our early morning departure, which they did not do, but otherwise rental was ready and waiting and got me fueled for departure.
From Jeff Long on 31-Jan-2021

  We landed and taxied our little Piper Arrow to the ramp, arriving immediately after a Citation jet. We were marshaled in and parked for fuel. The line crew gave us the same red carpet treatment (literally) as they provided for the jet. Everybody we met was friendly and welcoming. They let us take one of their crew cars (a clean SUV) so we could grab some lunch. I chose this airport because of other reviews here on AirNav, and I'm glad I did. This will be a regular fuel stop for us whenever we visit the Gulf Shore.
From Gus Hertz on 12-Dec-2020

  Some aviation Apps are still showing Salt Air's location on the airport. Sadly, Salt Air was bought out by Gulf Air...There is no FBO competition on the airport. The former Salt Air location appears to be vacant, so don't bother taxiing there. Gulf Air charges $10, or 10 gallons just to stop for lunch.
From Scott Lindsly on 31-Dec-2019

  We've stopped in many dozens of times over the years, for quick-lunch or for a few days, and recently a quick-lunch x-c pitstop turned into an extended stay when a minor maintenance issue turned into a big delay. GAC went above & beyond the call in helping us, rental car & overnight stay & steering us to outstanding A&P assistance! Top-notch as always, many thanks!!
From David Lowry on 19-Aug-2019

  When we landed the car was pulled out to the plane and all the help was friendly. They were starting to fill my plane before I loaded up the luggage to go. Great group of folks and speedy service. If I were to complain about anything, it would be the rental car. It was a 2013 Chrysler 200 that has seen pretty rough days. For the $80 per day I was paying, I don't think this was a very good deal. I understand Hertz is available and might be a better choice. Other than that, nice place to spend a few days.
From Rick Binkley on 29-May-2019

  Flew into KJKA for the Memorial Day weekend from Friday through Tuesday in a Bonanza. The staff at Gulf Air was incredibly helpful and supportive from the line crew to the desk personnel inside the FBO. Everyone was super nice, polite, and helpful. I understand that both FBO's on the field provide excellent service but I can attest to the professionalism and caring provided by Gulf Air as the excellence standard other FBO's should strive to provide. The entire crew really goes out of their way to ensure every member of your party feels special. The FBO building is outstanding and the crew cars are practically new. The FBO has a separate building across the parking lot called Jack's Aces Lounge where snacks, DirecTV, and x-box are provided free to customers. I can't wait to return to the area for another vacation and will definitely visit Gulf Air again. I can't stress enough how wonderfully they treated my entire family.
From Dave Williams on 28-Oct-2018

  Outstanding service! I arrived a couple of days prior to the AOPA Fly-in and even though they were quite busy preparing for the big show, they treated us very well and gave us outstanding service and attention. I highly recommend this FBO.
From Richard Traunero on 17-Aug-2018

  Once again, a very nice experience. Friendly and helpful staff. I had asked them to tow my plane up closer to the building for our early morning departure, which they did not do. Not a big deal, but it was raining when we departed, so it would have been nice if they had done what I asked.
From Steven Vale on 03-Aug-2018

  We flew to Gulf Shores in July 2018. We called Shawnda Henderson a week before and made arrangements for our 2 RV's for hangar space. The service was excellent. Both Summer and Nicole at Gulf Air Center took excellent care of us. They refueled our planes for us on Friday for an early Saturday departure. Our 3rd trip to Gulf Shores and we'll be back for more sun, surf and seafood.
From Evan Youngblood, N1541X on 17-Jul-2018

  Absolutely fantastic experience. Top-notch treatment for my family and me. The FBO rented us one of their vehicles for less than a typical rental, plus the vehicle was nicer. They had the rental planeside before I shut down, all ready to go. Happy to return.
From Scott Lindsly on 02-Jul-2018

  Another flawless experience with Gulf Air! Hopped over for a couple days of beach, always feel like we're coming home when we arrive at Gulf Air. Crew Car to run to LuLu's for a quick bite, then assisted us with Lyft (no Uber @ GS) to hotel...Wonderful R&R, then easy return and everything was ready to go when we Lyfted back. Thanks again to all, see y'all again soon!
From Phil Webb on 07-May-2018

  A hearty 'Thank You' to the good folks at Gulf Air Center for their recent support of our new Commemorative Air Force FloriBama Wing during our staff meeting last Saturday 05 May 2018! For a brief period of time, about 25 'Colonels' of our unit were able to take over the wonderful Jack's Aces facility and help ourselves to lunch during our quarterly business meeting! The FBO staff was exceptionally friendly and supportive, and we really felt at home in such an aviation friendly setting! Again, thanks so much for supporting us in our philanthropic cause --- keeping World War II aircraft airborne so that we may honor, remember, and educate, about those great Americans who served our nation in the most trying of historical times...Lest we forget! VR, JPW N42PW
From Dr. Glen Bradley on 15-Nov-2017

  I had the best airport experience I have had in decades of flying today. I flew into JKA and they were having their "Thanksgiving Feast" and it was amazing. Homemade turkey and ham with all the fixins. The food was terrific and the service and friendliness of Shawnda and her crew at Gulf Air were even better. I was made to feel at home and genuinely welcome. It was clear to me that Gulf Air is truly interested in serving their customers in every way possible. In over 6000 hours of flying this is my best ever FBO experience. Super impressed.
From Buddy Criminale on 12-Nov-2017

  Wow!!! What more can I say, except maybe Awesome service! These folks were terrific. The wife and I stopped in for several days to see family. (Celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary year by touring the country) Even though we were only flying a Cessna Cardinal, they rolled out the red carpet and treated us as if we were one of the big jets. Helped us with and rental car and other things. We had a great time and didn't have to worry about the airplane thanks to these folks. The line guys were great. We'll be back!
