  I decided to tie down at Salt Air for a quick trip to Gulf Shores after reading the reviews about them. This FBO is deserving of the praising reviews they have received. When we arrived one of the owners of the FBO marshalled us to a tie down right in front of the entrance to the building and placed a red carpet at our doorstep. One of the other employees brought our rental vehicle planeside while the owner was unloading our baggage for us. They assisted me in putting the canopy cover on and helped one of the elder passengers from the aircraft. We had originally rented the "smallest" vehicle they had but it wasn't available so they gave us a full sized truck for just a few dollars extra (no complaints here). They had drinks available and a comfortable facility to get changed and "freshen up." After we departed they topped the plane off with fuel, relocated it to a different tie down and tied it down for us. The plane was well cared for. We will certainly use Salt Air again!

  Gotta tell ya...Very impressed with the lineman Jordan. He remembered the last time we came in, asked if the wheels pants would be put back on (we had pants on last visit). He offered a crew car without being asked. He is a great ambassador for Salt Air. And Jenn is equally as great inside. She too remembered us and our last visit. Offered hotel suggestions for the October AOPA Fly in and said to call ahead a couple weeks before the event and she'll take care of their customers. Love flying into JKA and Salt Air

  Excellent FBO! Very friendly and accommodating. Staff is top notch, regardless of what headset boy below says. Borrowed the crew car and they had the plane fueled by the time we got back from a quick dinner. This FBO is my go to when we travel to the coast from North Alabama. Thanks

  Arrived at end of the day. Excellent red carpet service. Rented a brand new car and enjoyed the beach. Great gas prices. Definitely will come back.
From Eric Hill on 10-May-2017

  Fantastic experience. Flew in and had us taxi right up to door. Called a car for us and we were on the way to the beach in minutes. The next day they had our old Cherokee fueled and red carpet laid out ready to go. Decided to grab a last minute bite to eat at a nearby restaurant and they gave us a courtesy car to do so. No fees, cheap fuel, incredibly friendly staff with first class treatment. We will be back, thanks!

  I asked to rent/borrow a couple of headsets for an early morning flight with some friends and was told that the only way I could rent them is if I rented an airplane with them. I saw a headset bag sitting on the back of the counter when I was told I couldn't get them. I'm glad I chose another FBO to park my plane while in Gulf Shores for the week.

Response from Rachel Pitts, Manager, Salt Air Aviation Center
Hi Jeff, We understand you were parked at another FBO and stopped by our FBO to ask about renting our headsets. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience but we wanted to clarify the headsets you saw were either our student headsets, which are not available for rent, or a group of student headsets in need of repair. Salt Air does not rent headsets to the public as we only have enough for our students and customers. We would love to have you park at our ramp and use our facilities the next time you are in the Gulf Shores area. Thanks for your time!

  Just visited Salt Air at Jack Edwards Airport and had a wonderful experience! We needed a rental for the weekend and they set that up for us, we left a couple of items at the FBO that they retrieved for us! They had the plane ready both times we were flying out that weekend! We will definitely be back and we wanted to give them our BEST RECOMMENDATION to anyone flying into Jack Edwards! Great People at Salt Air!
From Mohammad Pasha on 06-Nov-2016

  Stopped at Salt Air on our recent visit to Gulf Shores. What a pleasant experience. Everything you would expect from a good quality FBO. The line people wouldn't even let me get my bags. Brought the car to the ramp and loaded our bags. Cold bottles of water for the both of us. Aircraft was already fueled on our return and windshield had been cleaned. Nice touch! There was a glitch with our billing through Hertz and Jess (FBO counter person) made some calls on our behalf and got the problem taken care. Mind you this was AFTER we had already departed. Definitely the place to stop if you land at Jack Edwards airport. Thanks for the wonderful service Salt Air.

  We found Salt Air as accommodating as humanly possible. The people are second to none. They take great care of GA pilots in a modern, clean and convenient facility...
From Bill Keller on 18-Aug-2016

  These guys are working really hard to make things good. Fuel price was competitive and the service was really good. One of the owners was on the ramp to visit with pilots.... You don't see that very often! I'll certainly be back and recommend you give them a try.

  Home field, Switched to Salt Air and love the service and prices.
From Tom McDowell on 19-Jul-2016

  Have been flying into KJKA for several years and the people @ Salt Air are a great addition. Excellent service and pricing. You won't be disappointed, give them a try.
From Ben Rumbley on 09-Jul-2016

  Flew in as a flight of two Van's RVs. The facility was super nice and the staff was excellent. Took the courtesy car to lunch. Great service without all of the congestion across the ramp...We'll be back!
