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!

  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.
From Pete Zaitcev on 17-Feb-2017

  Everything is okay if before 5 p.m., but god help you if you land at 6 p.m. everything is locked (no code) and there's no restroom. Neither of the numbers listed on the door pick up, so much for "after hours service". I ended walking randomly, in the dark, through a cemetery, drainage ditches, and I'm sure someone's private property, until I stumbled upon a motel. But yeah, self-serve 100LL was okay, no water.

Response from Stacie Hardage, Partner Rocket Aviation, LP
Mr. Zaitcev we sincerely apologize for the circumstances surrounding your recent visit to Rocket Aviation. Our office hours are 8:00 am - 6:00 pm 7 days a week. In the future, if you could let us know of your planned after hours visit, we will be happy to stay late, come back out, or make transportation and/or hotel arrangements to accommodate your needs. We do not have any fees associated with these services. In regards to the posted numbers not being answered, please leave a message and your call will be returned. We have added two additional numbers to the list to help ensure this never happens again. We strive hard to provide excellent customer service and meet all of our customers needs with a "happy to do it" attitude. Again, I sincerely apologize and do hope you give us an opportunity to show you we really do care about our customers.

From Ken Maples on 20-Oct-2016

  This many super positive comments can't be wrong. Very cheap fuel and very good service. Why aren't all GA airports like this? As of Oct. 2016 the crosswind runway (22/4) was being repaved. It is due to open any day now. The other runway is also in very good shape. I'll definitely be back!
From Scott Beard on 04-Jun-2016

  Super nice folks at rocket aviation and full service fuel option during day. Had a spark plug go bad and they took good care of plane and me. Great price on a Skytec starter upgrade.
From Cliff Biggs on 14-Feb-2016

  Stopped for cheap fuel $2.80/gallon SS. Always nice folks in office at Rocket Aviation. Clean restrooms. Clean crew car to go to lunch. We always fill up here you can't beat the price or the nice folks here.
From C Dommer on 12-Feb-2016

  Nice stopover between Houston and Denver. Helpful line guys, best price for fuel, crew car and lots of dining in town.
From Eddie King on 17-Jan-2016

  Super nice folks. Stopped in on way to BCS game---Roll Tide! provided great service and a quick turn around
From Pieter Waters on 15-Jan-2016

  Taxied up to their self-serve pump after hours after a five-hour leg from LA. Equipment was in great shape and we were in and out in no time. Fuel price was amazing too! Highly recommended!
From Kelly Kyle on 02-Jan-2016

  There's a reason for all those 5-star reviews. Rocket Aviation at PVW has the cheapest avgas anywhere and an efficient, friendly, service-oriented staff. I stopped in on 1-1-16 at about 5:15 PM. It was a slow traffic day and I was afraid they might be closing up early. They responded immediately to my Unicom call about 20 minutes out and assured me they were still there. They have 24-hour self-serve pumps, which is not mentioned in the A/FD. I'll definitely stop there on my next trip in that direction.
