  My wife and I visited Laconia and the Kane's region for a day escape recently and were thoroughly impressed by the friendly demeanor and helpful service from Sky Bright. Mike facilitated our refueling with ease and provided a clean courtesy car for our waterside lunch. Their assistance was seamless and their courtesy sets a marker all FBOs should emulate. We look forward to a return visit. In all respects sky bright - and mike - helped cultivate a wonderfully memorable day.

  Just landed Laconia for the first time ever. Only 66 nm from our home base, there hasn't been a reason to go there until a wedding this weekend. Absolutely wonderful airport. Non-towered with long wide runway and even with steady - but not at all heavy traffic, all the pilots made courteous proper radio calls. Sky Bright aviation helped us in advance to arrange a rental car and they were ready when we arrived - with the car on the ramp. They could not have been more pleasant or more competent. Very good fuel prices also. It was great experience from start to finish. We did not try Emerson aviation but their FBO is evident from the ramp so we walked in there first and they were also pleasant directing us through the lobby to Sky Bright. Looking forward to a reason to go back to this airport and to Sky Bright

  Lee Avery and company run a terrific FBO. We arrived 5/25/18 in our F33A, N85WM, and were met with a smile and our Avis rent-a-car. They helped with the luggage, the cover, and tied the plane down for us. They could not have been more accommodating. Thank you!!!

  Was planning on leaving yesterday around 8. Thanks Lee and Mike for noticing frost on the plane and moving the plane to the maintenance hangar to warm up and defrost before we arrived. Above and beyond, as usual.

  I flew into Laconia a couple days ago from KBED in a rented Cessna 172. I had called ahead to ask if there was a courtesy car available and let them know I was flying in. They graciously offered the courtesy car and said they would be prepared when I arrived, and boy, they were not kidding! Immediately after landing and turning off the runway, the folks at Sky Bright called me over the KLCI Unicom and told me exactly where to park, which was right in front of the FBO entrance. The line worker had driven the courtesy car right next to the tie down spot and had it running, ready to go. Didn't even need to walk more than 10 feet! Certainly made my passengers and me feel special! No hassle taking the car. Best part is there is no landing or parking fee! I highly recommend Sky Bright, and KLCI in general for a stress-free and enjoyable flight. I will certainly be back!

  Thanks for clearing the snow off my car while I was away in Florida. Sky Bright has given great service fueling and hangaring our planes.

  I want to echo Mr. Copperman's experience with Sky Bright. I have been flying my Archer then Bonanza to LCI for 8 years, and continue to rate Lee and his team at Sky Bright as the BEST anywhere. From routine service to helping me out of jams to finding a warm hangar spot in midwinter, Sky Bright is the best.
From Harry Copperman on 05-Jul-2016

  I just got to NH for the summer and was surprised to see the negative comment about Skly Bright. I'm not sure whom that person dealt with but it couldn't have been the same folks I have been dealing with for the last 16 years. I have owned a Bonanza, Mirage and a Meridian and have found Lee, the FBO Manager, to be the nicest, most honest and most helpful individual I have had the pleasure of working with during my 40 years of flying. Lee has always been willing to go the extra mile including fueling me at off hours, finding me hangar space on a wintery night or finding me a rental car when none is available. His focus on keeping his customers happy clearly trickles down to his staff and I have found both his mechanics and his line staff to be equally helpful. I will continue to use and would highly recommend Sky Bright. As an aside, Lee just added a custom built 'golf cart' to get you from the ramp to the FBO. Holds six people and all your luggage - and sure beats walking.
