  Probably the best FBO anywhere. These guys go out of their way to assist. One thing I learned during a stop last week. Turn left out of airport and head for Cimarron. Nothing along the road - not a single building - until you get about halfway ~ 12 miles. On the left will be a building/town - Cold Beer, New Mexico. The best Green Chili Cheeseburger you'll ever find. Cold beer, too.

  Great little FBO with plenty of free snacks and swag
From Mark Moran on 13-Jan-2017

  Flew in here on a cold, very windy day in a King Air. Lineman (Justin) was very professional and marshalled me to a spot facing directly upwind (much appreciated.) Walked in and was immediately offered a delicious hamburger straight off the grill. Facility has everything you need. It's clean, well managed, and customer service is top notch!
From Don Miller, N1094L on 30-Oct-2016

  What a goldmine! If you're in a hurry, they will take care of you, but recommend you plan to stop long enough to try one of their fabulous homemade hamburgers WOW. And they are priced right in a pilotís budget. No mistaking this is what old school GA is all about. Thanks

  Dusty and Tom did a fantastic job at taking care of us. Happened to randomly choose this airport at random, but now it will be a staple in our cross-country trips! Beautiful facility with lots of appreciated freebies. Of course we got more fuel than needed and greased the tip jar, the guys are deserving of it. Our free burgers were delicious and even had some free cookies while resting up. Looking forward to stopping here next time in the area. Raton airport is 5 stars in my book. - Denver natives

  The staff at the Raton Airport, although not always present, are outstanding in their efforts to assist visitors and to promote RTN. Highly recommended.
From Scott Diffenbaugh on 09-Aug-2016

  Stopped on the way back from OSH. Justin and Tom were terrific. Borrowed courtesy car to explore Sugarite Canyon State Park & hike. Sadly, much of the downtown is run down. Camped on the FBO lawn and they left door open for us until 9pm. Exceptional service.
From Joe Richards on 06-Apr-2016

  What an Amazing FBO. These Guys know the meaning of Customer Service. They were very friendly, and helpful with the local area. And they serve an awesome hamburger. And when it comes to airplanes, they knew how and where to park us for wind, and treat our passengers like Kings. Thank you so much Express FBO!!!
From Hans Miesler on 26-Feb-2016

  2-26-16 I stopped in today for a long overdue visit. Keith, Fern and their son Martin ran this FBO for many years and it was always like coming home. Great service with a smile and hamburgers and snacks always available. Now for the good news... Dusty and his assistant are leading the way in making this a great stopover under new ownership and they have kept the fine tradition of excellent service in a nicely remodeled building. Not only is it a great stopover but also it's a really welcoming destination. "I'll be back" thanks for a pleasant afternoon.
From Dane Knowlton on 23-Jan-2016

  Mr. Funk... You get it! What a great stop, Justin and Tom are outstanding...The service and amenities are fantastic. Awesome Eagle art and great fuel prices... Clean RWY's and tarmac. We just hung out and relaxed! Stop in, have a cup of coffee or a snack and they'll offer to cook you burger as well... FREE! Hey... Be nice, "grease" the tip cup!:) Careful, the La-Z-Boy chairs have massage and heat and will close your eyes! LOL! Thanks RTN.. We'll be back!
From Zac Armstrong on 09-Jan-2016

  The folks at this FBO know how to treat customers. Free cheeseburgers (that are good and made to order), snacks, and cheap gas. What else could you ask for? Their O2 service was only $20!!!!! Nice facilities and you can tell they take pride in what they do! This will be our cross-country stop every time.
From Matthew G McHarg on 06-Dec-2015

  Great FBO. Nice facilities, really nice people. Beautiful location. What is not to like. We will be back.
From Justin Beitler on 29-Nov-2015

  AWESOME place! If you need fuel or just a place to stretch your legs, definitely stop here. The staff are incredibly nice and helpful, and the facilities are amazing. They have free snacks and even offered to cook me up a free burger! One of the best small airport facilities I've ever been to.
From Paul Valovich on 27-Nov-2015

  Stopped at RTN in a RV-8A enroute from CA to PA Sun 22 Nov and back to CA on Wed 25 Nov ahead of severe weather. Superb service. One of the line guys lives at airport and offered help if I had to return after hours. Courtesy car available, but I elected to depart ahead of the weather. An outstanding FBO.
From Fred Fourcher on 19-Aug-2015

  I flew into Raton for a 2 week Philmont Trek. I arrived early and waited for the rest of the scouts who arrived by Amtrak. While waiting Dusty really took good care of me. They have free snacks and Dusty even cooked a hamburger for me. While I was on my 2-week trek without phone or Internet, I did have a weather radio, which was reporting golf ball sized hail in the area. I was concerned about my plane and when I returned a week later Dusty said he had put my plane in the hangar the night of the storm just in case the big hail had come their way. Express Aviation is the most accommodating FBO I have visited in my 25 years of flying.
From Kelvin Crezee on 07-Jul-2015

  This FBO and airport is financial supported by a very kind local businessman. He has renovated the building and lowered fuel costs. There are complimentary snacks and as mentioned by the previous person excellent onsite Chevy Suburbanís for rent. Great fuel price is what drew me in but Dusty and the FBO are what will bring me back. If you are in the area or flying cross-country near the area I highly recommend this stop. Long runway and a beautiful flight over the hill from Taos.
From David Begin on 15-Jun-2015

  Great FBO!! We don't get to stop here often since we are located in KCOS, but I was very impressed with the facilities and service. This should be on your stop list if you are coming through the area.
From Kyle Hendrickson on 26-May-2015

  My brother, best friend, and I flew to KRTN for five days of camping in the mountains nearby. Prior to our trip, I spoke with Dusty to enquire about rental vehicles. He set us up with one of Express' beautiful Chevy Suburbanís at a rate, which rendered the competition a "no challenge". Upon arrival we were met by Dusty, Justin, and Dusty's kids Braxton and Serenity - all out on the ramp with our Suburban planeside for easy loading. While Dusty and Justin assisted with securing our Mooney, Braxton and Serenity offered to hold doors, get us beverages, and provided charm in general. The facilities were immaculate and well appointed and Dusty recommended a hotel (the famous St. James in nearby Cimarron) for our last "clean-up" night down from the mountains before returning home. Best advice ever. I have never experienced such a classy and comforting welcome. KRTN is a tight ship under the command of one very friendly Captain and crew. AirNav doesn't allow enough space for adequate praise
