From Andrei Razsadin on 11-Jan-2020

  Late night flight Picking up my 340A from Genesys/JAG in TX, to head to Vegas. Recognized Ill need a stop for fuel, I decided to plan a stop here, as fuel prices were respectable. Well flight in was wet. Cold and 35Kt cross winds get it on the ground and temps were 29 deg (miserable). FBO was closed @ 9pm, Fueled/hands frozen, got back into the plane and battery was dead!!! Well call the number on the door and man answered said hed be right down... I felt horrible for bothering this nice man who showed up with a smile. I offered to pay for his time and he respectful refused. He quickly jumped me and I was off back home. I still feel horrible but he was an angel who helped me. Thank you sir! I will be back to buy a shirt from the FBO and shake your hand. Thank you Thank you!!

  Excellent runways, awesome FBO, free courtesy car, awesome restaurants near by... Oh ya and the cheapest avgas around! Why wouldn't you stop here?
From Barry Harper on 25-Oct-2019

  Stopped at PVW on the way from Texas to New Mexico. Usually stop here 1-3 times a year. Fuel prices are good and self-serve pumps work great. FBO is clean and everyone is friendly and helpful. Airport is easy in easy out. Much better than the big town of Lubbock.
From Carol Ann Garratt on 06-Oct-2019

  Read the reviews and decided to stop overnight. Mark and others are extremely helpful and courteous. Gave me a courtesy car and made hotel recommendations. Great stop. Thank you.
From James Cole on 27-Aug-2019

  Friendly gents willing to fuel you off the truck or let you do it yourself at the SS pump, ice-cold lounge, clean restrooms, and great SS price.
From Kirk S - KGYI on 30-Jan-2019

  Wife and I have made a habit of stopping here. Small FBO that has everything going for it. Courteous and helpful desk staff, great avgas price, comfortable digs in which to hangout and take a breather. We used to stop up at Tradewinds on our trips West, but Rocket has made that obsolete. Airport has great runways too. Hope this FBO stays in business, like forever...
From Dave Foley on 18-Nov-2018

  Cold with strong north winds and still the FBO staff gladly topped off the plane, and let us - including the dogs - rest in the lounge. WILL be a regular stop in the panhandle.
From Barry Harper on 11-Nov-2018

  Made a quick fuel stop at Plainview on Nov 4. Great fuel prices, friendly people manning the FBO. Everything you could ask for from an FBO. Easy in Easy out.
From Bill Hoglan on 25-Sep-2018

  Easy in and out. Quick and friendly service. Fuel by truck or pump.
From Jeff Gilmore on 23-Jul-2018

  Great, quick service. Great fuel prices. West Texas hospitality.
From Gary Stone on 10-Jul-2018

  A great model of a service-oriented business. Hale Co./Plainview, TX started out being just a convenient and economic fuel stop on our way from Orlando, FL to Southern CA, but they quickly showed us they were more than that. Even before landing, they were quick to offer fuel, parking and ground transportation options. Their size may be small, but their hospitality is mighty! The next morning we got to experience the same customer service attitude in their maintenance shop. We needed an O2 fill, which was handled right away. I also had a vacuum pump go out enroute to PVW. Fortunately they had one in stock for our engine and they replaced it in just over an hour. We were in the air by 9:30am. These guys are super heroes!
From Barry Harper on 18-Apr-2018

  I was at Hale Co today to transfer Angelflight passengers today. Fuel prices are great, self-serve worked without a hitch, nice friendly FBO with snacks and drinks. A great place to stop for a break.
From Stephen Bell on 22-Aug-2017

  Stopped here to RON on a flight from Florida to Arizona. This is the most helpful, welcoming, reasonably priced FBO I have encountered anywhere. The fuel and hangar prices were incredibly reasonable, and we got a lot of tips on local restaurants. I would recommend this FBO whether for a fuel stop or a layover.
From Janet Lapp on 29-Jul-2017

  This was an amazing experience because it was so unexpected. Stopped off for refuel on way home from AirVenture and the welcome began in the air, and continued with great service (with extras) and super low fuel prices. Turns out I needed to stay overnight and motels were suggested and was loaned a crew car! The town even has a Jimmy Dean museum - doesn't get much better!
From Dan R. Linebarger on 09-Jul-2017

  Not only is this airport maintained well and looks like new, the Rocket Aviation family treat you like family. They fueled, hangared my plane, gave me a loaner car (nice Crown Vic with air!) You can't beat the service or prices anywhere.
From Jeff Poplin on 27-May-2017

  This is a super friendly, no hassle FBO. Full service is .20 cents more than self-serve and still much cheaper than any option in the area. They have a Lincoln town car as the crew car and offer great recommendations for food in town. Lineman and desk staff are just nice, friendly people and happy to get your business. This has become my panhandle TX stop for cross-country trips.
From Dan Levin on 23-May-2017

  Great family owned FBO, with very good fuel prices and excellent service. Stopped by last minute, and was very well taken care of even though it was late in the day. Beautiful airport too. Highly recommended fuel stop.
From Joseph Shepherd on 20-May-2017

  Arrived after hours, called number on door, Mark came out and loaned us the Lincoln, and put my 195 in hangar for 15$a night..Very nice folks at Rocket Aviation.. Joe Shepherd Fayetteville, Ga.
From Joe Shepherd, Cessna 195 N4444C, Lockheed 12 NC2072 on 19-May-2017

  Arrived after hours, called number on door, she, Stacy sent Mark out, he gave my 195 a hangar, 15$a night, nice courtesy car, great gas prices.. Great folks+++++++ Will always stop here in Texas
From Marc Wiese on 19-May-2017

  Excellent service; we were delayed a day and Rocket provided a car, and great customer service. Good fuel price, too. Visit the Jimmy Dean/Llano Estecado Museum!
From Lucius F. on 02-May-2017

  We (two planes) arrived late, but Mark saw us on flightaware and stayed longer to help us out. Very friendly FBO. Mark gave us the courtesy car over night and offered to brew us coffee in the morning. Not surprised seeing so many 5 star comments.
