  The folks at Francis Aviation are outstanding. We have overnight-ed here 3 times lately, and they are always very accommodating. Very reasonable rates on hangars, and they have driven us to and from our hotel. We will continue to use them in the future.
 
From Bruce Morey on 28-May-2018

 
  Another great fueling stop! Efficient and friendly service. The Francis Aviation facility is pleasant, comfortable and a great place to cool off. We enjoyed a rest stop and the sandwiches we had with us. The Wi-Fi connection works great! As we were deplaning and the line tech was going to the fuel truck, a gentleman walked up and said that fuel is cheaper at Southwest Aviation. I just said, "Thanks", and stayed put. We've visited Francis Aviation before and have never been disappointed. AirNav shows Francis $0.04/gallon cheaper!
 
From Jack Olsen on 27-Mar-2018

 
  On our way from Georgia to California, we stopped in Las Cruces, NM for overnight. Francis Aviation was very accommodating. Besides taking care of the plane, they also provided transportation to and from our hotel. Waysen helped secure the plane, loaded our luggage, suggested eating places and was there the next morning to take us back to the airport. A very friendly and convenient layover. Fuel prices very competitive.
 
From Atlas Wegman on 09-Dec-2017

 
  Absolutely excellent service and a great stop! The FBO is gorgeous, the staff is attentive and helpful. My Cessna 172 was nearly blown away by a king air doing a full power run up on the ramp...One of the line men rushed over with the fuel truck to help block the prop blast. THANK YOU!! We were given a ride to the nearest hotel (easy) and enjoyed a delicious meal in town. Great stop on our trip NY -> CA!
 
From Buddy Criminale on 12-Nov-2017

 
  Great service and friendly staff. The wife and I stopped here going and coming on our trip across the country. They went above and beyond to help us to get a hotel for the night and gave us a ride to and from the hotel on both visits. Highly recommend this place
 
From Robert Loughlin on 06-Jul-2017

 
  Flew into Las Cruces on July 4th. Arrived around 7 PM local. Staff was right there to meet us. They fueled us immediately, and made arrangements for hotel shuttle to pick us up. They also made arrangements for line personnel to pick us up at the hotel very early before hotel shuttle service resumed the next morning. I will definitely use Francis Aviation again in the future. Thank you to everyone at Francis Aviation. You made our trip better because of your willingness to go the extra mile!!
 
From Leon Leonardo on 19-Jun-2017

 
  Red carpet service for a Skyhawk! Great service, friendly personnel, comfortable facility. I will definitely return and recommend others take advantage of a great FBO.
 
From Carl Nuzzo on 28-Apr-2017

 
  Landed at 11:30 at night. As I cleared the runway the line person was out on the ramp with wands. Very important as it is a long ramp and the FBO was at the far end. Excellent job! Very helpful and gave a good hotel recommendation. They give you reduced rates at the Encanto, I highly recommend an Uber to this hotel. Will be back!
 
From Bill Gardner on 27-Mar-2017

 
  Beautiful and clean facility, friendly people, good prices, quick refueling, even an offer of an extra burrito if we wanted it from the nice lady working the counter. :-) And AvTrip points too. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks Francis Aviation!
 
From Carl Bevan on 21-Mar-2017

 
  Back for our 3rd visit in as many years. All service was excellent as usual. Everybody was friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work. Will be back again.
 
From Tobias Muhlhofer on 28-Sep-2016

 
  Overall, great service: came in unannounced for an overnight stop and staff was helpful with hotel and rental car. One issue (which cost them a star): I asked for the AirBoss discount (I am a member) and staff was unaware they offered this and did not honor it. Had to waste time with them on the phone later in the week and will hopefully get a refund of the difference now. If you go there, INSIST ON YOUR AIRBOSS DISCOUNT!
 
From Roger Freedman on 21-Jun-2016

 
  The folks at Francis were attentive and very helpful! Their recommendation of a hotel in Las Cruces (Hotel Encanto) was an excellent one.
 
From F. Scott Sanders on 17-May-2016

 
  Landed at Las Cruces due to nasty weather at our destination and ended up having to spend the night. Top notch, attentive service from the line guys to the front desk staff. Got us a discounted hotel rate and arranged for a shuttle into town. Very nice to see that customer service is still being taught and folks know how to deliver it!
 
From Carl Bevan on 31-Mar-2016

 
  We arrived at Francis Aviation for a 3-day stay in Las Cruces to participate in the annual Bataan Memorial Death March. We were greeted as we rolled up and our rent car was waiting. The staff did all possible to accommodate our needs during or stay. The prices were quite reasonable and the facilities were excellent. We hope to return again sometime soon.
 
From Bruce Morey on 06-Mar-2016

 
  Excellent service during a short fuel stop. The two line techs and the lady at the desk were all very friendly and efficient. The facility is very clean and well equipped. We will make this a regular refueling stop!
 
From Dave Roberts on 17-Feb-2016

 
  We landed at KLRU and used Francis Aviation based on comments here on AirNav. This is one of the best FBO's in the country. The owner apparently recognizes that you are only as good as the people you employ and has employed the best. The young men and women working here are courteous, accommodating, friendly and go above and beyond to make your stay pleasurable and trouble-free. Thank you MJ, Carly, Lexi, Chuck, Terri and Lori for truly outstanding service. We will definitely return.
 
From Manny Colon on 20-Dec-2015

 
  Landed here for an overnight stay enroute to Lubbock Texas. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. They recommended a hotel that had a shuttle to bring me back the following morning. The facilities were very clean and well appointed. Stopped again on the way back a week later!
 
From Bob Glennon on 03-Nov-2015

 
  Quick in and out and outstanding service. The facility is new and the staff is terrific.
 
From Roald Lutz on 11-Oct-2015

 
  Super helpful folks. I had 2 dozen kids from a robotics competition come out for a picture with the 195 and it worked out great. Really great place!
 
From Pete Greenfield on 16-Sep-2015

 
  We stopped here a couple of weeks ago for fuel. The Navy is using the field for pilot training and it is very busy certain times of the year. With that being said, the service was pretty slow because they are busy catering to the needs of the military and it took more than an hour to get fuel and get out of there. I will probably stop in El Paso next time.
