  Unbelievably great service from everyone at Circle Air, from the Manager who was so kind to me, to the excellent staff behind the desk, to the linemen who were so helpful. One of my best FBO experiences ever! Cannot tank this FBO and its staff highly enough!!
From Robert Boerner on 16-Jul-2017

  We have our 182 at Gillespie and are so happy to see another fuel vendor on site. We have mostly avoided the other vendor here for 10 years and gone elsewhere for fuel. Circle Air's fuel truck guys have been great and with the new self-serve pumps open, I am going to be using them quite a bit. Their prices for both self and full service are outstanding. Thanks Circle Air!
From Franz Forman on 29-Jun-2017

  Really appreciated the top-notch service at Circle Air. The FBO came highly recommended by a friend who frequents the field. I arrived in a Mooney and took on 20 gallons of 100LL, but was treated by the line guys and office staff the same as if I had a Citation. They moved the plane with care, assisted in hotel recommendations, and had the most reasonably priced fuel in the area. I will definitely return. Thank you!
From Bill Woods/Western Wings on 21-Apr-2017

  This is one first class FBO. Super well run! Great Service! Great Fuel Prices! Wonderful people! If you're going to San Diego this is the place to go. Lots of parking. Really nice facilities.
From Kevin Condroski on 15-Feb-2017

  Fast, reliable service from friendly staff, all with the best price around.
From Charles Hancock on 31-Jan-2017

  Great service from the Circle Air! Our first trip to the area; very nice facilities and attentive care by the whole desk. Had to be in SoCal for a no-notice trip; one phone call and Circle Air had the car reserved and waiting as we taxied up. Line personnel knew the questions to ask and to confirm our order. They treat you the same, whether smaller GA aircraft or the bigger iron. Circle Air has the best fuel prices on the field, perhaps in the whole San Diego area. We heard that the management is relatively new; if so, it's making a positive difference. We will be using Circle Air for all of our San Diego trips.
From Ted Louis Glenn on 10-Jan-2017

  Made a reservation in advance including rental car. Everything went well and they did a good job including handling a last-minute out-and-return trip.
From Duffy Fainer on 11-Nov-2016

  I'm really enjoying getting my fuel from Circle Air. My Cheetah isn't requiring the services that the jets need, but I'm thrilled with their quality customer service from the desk to the fuel truck. Thanks for extending your great prices to our suffering masses...We appreciate it...And I'll be your self serve customer when it opens.
From Todd McCutchan on 05-Oct-2016

  We visited Circle Air recently in our Global Express. The line service was excellent, the facilities in great condition, and there was plenty of ramp space for us. Cheapest fuel around and no ramp or handling fee!! We are loving the new ownership.
From Bruce Kirchenheiter on 05-Oct-2016

  GREAT service from Jeremy on the line, very nice facilities and very attentive care by Meagan at the front desk, convenient location and the best fuel prices on the field, probably in the whole San Diego area. Nice to have an FBO that really cares! This will be my designated stop when flying into San Diego!
From Jared Scrafton on 05-Oct-2016

  New management is great. We will be using KSEE and Circle Air for all of our San Diego/Carlsbad trips from now on. Thanks for the great service!!!!!
From Sean Gillette on 04-Oct-2016

  Hands down my favorite FBO in the Socal area. I've been all around California FBOs and Circle Air Group is definitely the best by far. Having arrived in both small single engine stuff for fun, and in jets while working, they've gone above and beyond to make the stay as best as possible in both circumstances...Which is rare. Ramp agents and front desk personnel are extremely friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. I wouldn't go to any other FBO for services if heading to the SD area....Period.
From Dean Friedt on 04-Oct-2016

  Visited Circle Air - they are fast, efficient and friendly. They have a great facility and the fuel prices are dirt-cheap! I will only use these guys when I come to KSEE! Thanks Circle Air!
From Scott Glaser on 04-Oct-2016

  Flew in a couple of weeks ago for a days of multiple ops. Ground staff was outstanding! They took the time to learn to properly fuel and tend to my unusual aircraft. Fuel prices were the best around. Can't say enough good things about these folks.
From Tom Johnson on 04-Oct-2016

  Brought the Mu2 out for a business meeting and easily made the C2 right turnoff for a quick and easy arrival at Circle Air (used to be Jet Air). Ground handling was quick and precise. It's such an easy drive to La Jolla and San Diego and such a quick in/out with ATC. Will be back.
From W. Todd Peasley on 04-Oct-2016

  Needed 2 coolers of ice on short notice. No problem. Fast, friendly staff...easy turn. By far the cheapest 100LL on the field and plenty or ramp/hangar space.
From Brandon Webb on 04-Oct-2016

  Great experience, friendly and professional staff. Appreciate that the ownership are from the military aviation community. I don't normally write reviews but felt compelled when the staff went above and beyond to take care of our crew and us.
From Harry Hirschman on 03-Oct-2016

  Outstanding facility in every way, second only to the people on the gas trucks and behind the desk. I can't say enough good things about my experience here. The line crew was prompt, helpful and knowledgeable. My plane is finicky and tricky to fuel, but they didn't shy away from it at all and seemed to be used to that sort of thing. They know how to take great care of your canopy glass, the prices are WAY lower than elsewhere on the field, and they have plenty of hangar or ramp space. They took great care of me both coming and going so I don't hesitate to give them my strongest recommendation.
From Andrew Patton on 03-Oct-2016

  Unbeatable customer service - super friendly front desk staff that gave me great info on where to eat, etc. Great ramp and facilities! Hangar so clean you could eat off the floor. Cheapest fuel on the field when I was there. Great staff + great facilities + low price... What more do you want?
From Tobias Muhlhofer on 28-Sep-2016

  Wonderful FBO! Flew in, in my C414 to stay for the weekend and got great treatment. Rental car was brought plane-side on arrival. On departure, fueling was done promptly and correctly. Picked up enough fuel to waive fees (was a pretty low requirement). The staff was very friendly and the facilities are great. All of this at a very reasonable fuel price for San Diego. Highly recommended!
