About Cutter Aviation
Founded in 1928, Cutter Aviation is America's oldest continually family-owned FBO and aviation service company. Cutter Aviation operates at eight major airports in the Southwestern United States. Cutter locations in Arizona (Deer Valley and Phoenix Sky Harbor), New Mexico (Albuquerque), Texas (Dallas-Addison, and San Antonio) and Colorado (Colorado Springs) provide a wide range of services to transient and based aircraft including fuel and FBO service, maintenance, avionics, new and pre-owned aircraft sales and charter and aircraft management.

The Phoenix, facility is a full-service, fixed-base operations, with Albuquerque and Colorado Springs providing line services for transient aircraft. San Antonio and Dallas-Addison provide new and pre-owned aircraft sales as well as maintenance.

Looking Back
Continuously family-owned for eight decades, the company originated as Cutter Flying Service Inc., in Albuquerque. William P. Cutter envisioned a business that would serve the fledgling aviation community - and the resulting enterprise exceeded his expectations. The company survived the Great Depression, and, at the outbreak of World War II, became major pilot training facility for the military. In 1947, the company began its long-standing affiliation with Beech Aircraft Corporation. Since that time, the Cutter name became, and continues to be, synonymous with major and emerging aircraft brands ranging from piston singles to light and medium turbine aircraft.

Looking Ahead
Over the years, Cutter has maintained a position of leadership in the general aviation community by consistently expanding its services and its locations. Cutter Aviation, Inc., opened its Phoenix operation in 1959. The Deer Valley facility opened in 1997, San Antonio in 1998, Colorado Springs in 2006 and Dallas-Addison in 2013. Cutter remains strong due to an unwavering commitment to customer service, customer and employee satisfaction, and business practices rooted in our core values of respect, trust and integrity.

Company President Will Cutter reinforces this: "These are key ingredients to a formula that has kept us at the forefront of the industry. They have helped us establish a reputation that we are all proud of. Our values have served us well for eighty years, and without them, Cutter would be just another run-of-the-mill service station for airplanes."

  Excellent as usual. Ramp agents were polite and professional. Desk staff was helpful and courteous. Offered water and souvenir green chili. Plane was waiting in front as scheduled.
From Robert Morris on 29-Apr-2021

  To say that Cutter is a step above is not even close to enough praise. I lead a Customer Experience (CX) team at a large software mfg., and will be using my Cutter experience as a great aspirational example. Always above and beyond, always caring about you and your family, and I only fly a prop plane. It makes you WANT to do business with them whenever possible. Reasonable prices are great (and they have those), top notch customer experience is why I keep coming back. Well done.
From Tony Hann on 23-Dec-2020

  Stop at Cutter every time I am passing through and they are always pleasant and really nice folks. This morning, we had frost on the aircraft we were ferrying so asked if I could put it inside a hangar to thaw out. Two lineguys came and helped me push it inside and blasted the heater. In about 15 minutes, it was thawed out and they cam out to help move it out. Great friendly staff and nice facility. Will stop there again in the future.
From Kenny Hinkes on 07-Aug-2020

  Jesse and her team are the best in the business. Professional, accurate, they all go beyond the normally acceptable to insure your experience is exceptional. This is especially unique, as we own a Cessna 172 and most big airport FBO's only really cater to corporate and executive turbine and jet operators. We always feel like we pulled up in a Gulfstream at Cutter Albuquerque!
From Joe Gamez on 20-Jul-2020

  I've been in and out of Cutter ABQ over the past several years and the crew in and outside of the building is outstanding. Beyond excellent customer service, they are all very COVID conscious wearing face protection and remaining socially distant.
From Clark Jernigan on 27-Jun-2020

  Clear flagman directions, nice lounge, efficient hostess at counter, and reasonable FS fuel. It's very convenient to Knob Hill area of ABQ. I'll use them next time too.
From Josh Proano on 17-Feb-2020

  First time at cutter FBO. Called a day ahead to get on their schedule for a couple hour stay, very kind and welcoming on the phone. The experience on the ramp was fantastic. The marshalers were out as soon as we entered the ramp. Quick fuel service, and attentive ramp and desk staff during the stay. Took 10g of fuel vs the ramp fee but both were reasonable. As we were leaving the ramp staff were again out promptly asking how they could help us. Overall a great experience will come here again.
From Mark Rubin on 14-Oct-2019

  Wonderful, friendly FBO. The lineman was waiting for me on arrival and parked me right in front of FBO. I needed a rental and they quickly set it up for me and had the car in minutes.... And at a better rate than I could get online. Everyone was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. I stayed for several nights in Albuquerque and when I was ready to leave, the plane was right out front of the FBO all topped off with fuel and ready to go. Absolutely perfect service. Very top notch and well run FBO. Would stop by there for fuel or any needs anytime I am in the area.
From Thomas Anderson on 15-Sep-2019

  My ex-wife was from ABQ so I have visited Cutter ABQ more times than I can count. (The logbook says 70.) I even proposed in their conference room. (Hey, it was romantic for me!) Still, I have always considered Cutter ABQ the "gold standard" when it comes to FBOs. It doesn't matter if you arrive in a G5 or a 50 year-old Prop, the staff consistently provides friendly and helpful first-class service. They don't charge egregious fees and the ones they do have are usually waived with a fuel purchase. They even gave me a fuel discount for being an AOPA member. If your travels take you to or through ABQ, remember these three words: "Taxi to Cutter!"
From Zachary Smith on 05-Sep-2019

  Just did a quick turn for a CAA fuel stop. Truck was waiting when we parked, friendly service from everyone we met. The pink lemonade was a nice touch on a hot day. Great stop.
From Allen Mathews on 06-Aug-2019

  Jessi and her team are the BEST! We recently took family members up on several scenic flights around ABQ. The Cutter ABQ team gave special attention to our young and old passengers and made them feel very comfortable in the airport environment. The Cutter family approach to business is very much appreciated.
From Gordon Feingold on 26-May-2019

  Cutter at ABQ has been providing me with excellent service for many years, and they are consistently excellent and efficient. This is one of my favorites FBO's to visit because I know I am going to be treated right and greeted with a smile, and their CAA fuel price is very competitive.
From Alireza Alivandivafa on 29-Apr-2019

  Very nice crew, good crew cars and no hassle.
From Spencer Hamons on 12-Apr-2019

  I fly from my home in Angel Fire, NM (KAXX) to KABQ several times a month to catch commercial flights across the country. The Cutter staff at ABQ have always treated me as if I were coming in on a jet, even though I am in a piston single. Their crew cars are some of the nicest I have ever seen, and they are great about grabbing someone to run you over to the terminal in their courtesy shuttle. When I return on my commercial flight, I can call them as soon as I start walking through the terminal, and they are usually meeting me just outside the doors when I get there. The line crew is great, and they pay careful attention-to-detail when fueling, moving, and positioning the plane. I will continue to use Cutter's services at any airport they have a facility.
From Dan Herr on 04-Apr-2019

  Jessi also emailed me directly to ensure that I am aware that changes have been made. This type of response is what makes Cutter a first-class FBO.
From Dan Herr on 01-Apr-2019

  I have always loved Cutter, and the line crew here is terrific, but I was charged the non-CAA fuel price and non-CAA ramp fees despite telling the CSR several times that I am a CAA member. Cutter promptly issued a refund when I called, but I expect better.

Response from Jessi Rowden, General Manager, Cutter ABQ
Mr. Herr- I am sincerely sorry for the inconvenience you experienced on your last visit to Cutter ABQ. The young lady processing your payment on departure unfortunately indeed made mistakes with your billing on our new payment system. Once you brought the mistake to our attention, we rectified it immediately and implemented additional training on the system as well as a CAA handling refresher for ALL staff members. I know that this is unfortunately after the fact for your experience, however I hope that you will give us another chance. Please know that we greatly appreciate your business, hold ourselves to a high standard and will do everything in our power to prevent errors from occurring again. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional concerns you may have. -

From Robert McMeekin on 27-Mar-2019

  Another 5 star experience at Cutter! Seth & Kathryn met us with luggage cart. CSRs Promise, Alexandra, and Jocelyn handled hangar, hotel and transportation arrangements, and Kerrie had us fueled on time and online for departure. Cutter staff makes ABQ one of our favorite stops. Thank you, again!
From Jonathan Shorey, N560RK on 27-Feb-2019

  Cutter Aviation gets 5 stars, if 6 were an option they would have got that! They treated us like part of the family. They are a great example of what old fashion FBO service is like. Thank you and see you next time around.
From Sean Julian on 08-Jan-2019

  I arrived late at night. The staff took care of my plane and even brought me to the hotel. The next morning they brought my plane into the hangar to clear the ice and warm my plane. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. I would definitely use them again. Thank you staff!
From Adam Charles on 13-Oct-2018

  One of the best. Even the non pilot passengers notice they are a step above. Always use Cutter when in ABQ.
From Chuck Waldrop on 17-Sep-2018

  I did an overnight stop over in ABQ on Saturday the 15th of Sep and as usual Cutter provided excellent service in every way. They treat the piston guys just as nice as the Turbines and my dogs are always welcome
From Carl L. Hopkins on 16-Sep-2018

  Arrived mid day in my Bonanza BE36. Was meet by staff and marshaled into a parking spot in from of the entrance door. They brought a baggage cart and water. I took on 40 gallons (a bit high priced at $6.14) but no other charges (with 20 gallons or more). Got a ride to a hotel right away in a nice cool van. Next morning the plane was waiting right out front ready to go. Very pleased. Will use next time.
