Bartow Flying Service


Originally opened in 1943 as a military training base for P-51 pilots, the Bartow Air Base has grown through the years to become the Bartow Executive Airport. From the tumultuous beginning of World War II to present day, we've always endeavored to meet the professional standards of the aviation community.

The quality of our competitively priced Jet A and 100LL is second to none. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priority. With a quick phone call, we'll be happy to assist you with all your local transportation and lodging needs. Once you arrive, our NATA certified line service crew will guide you to parking, assist with rental cars and take care of passengers, crew and baggage. The friendly staff inside will make sure your requests are met quickly and efficiently.

Located in Central Florida, the Bartow Airport has convenient access to world class golfing at Streamsong Resort. If theme parks are your destination, it's just a short drive to Legoland, Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios, Sea World Orlando or Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. For those who prefer relaxing in the sun, the white sands of the Gulf Coast are less than two hours away.

If learning to fly is your dream, our flight school can make that happen. Our professional instructors can take you from "0" time to CFII. Call for details.

  Very friendly staff and instructors. Everything was hassle free. Very easy to book aircraft. I'm from the UK and hired aircraft from Bartow over the course of two weeks. The costs were very reasonable too.
From Kevin Ford on 26-Jun-2018

  Sorry to report the Nini's Restaurant has closed. Hope to have new folks take over soon!
From Vic Roberts Gulf Shores, AL on 15-Apr-2018

  Flew a Saratoga in back in November, great service from everyone. Hit a buzzard after takeoff, had to leave the plane with Bill Turley. Everyone was very helpful. Flew in for Sun N Fun. Tommy flagged us in & helped with everything. Usual great service.. Thanks everyone...

  After more than one year away from Bartow (we live in Europe), we went back to the USA and specifically to Bartow for a 3-week flying vacation, renting aircrafts from Bartow Flying Service. The crew in Bartow, Jennifer, Rosa and all the linemen were super excellent and friendly, helping in any way they could. Tower is accommodating, the restaurant is nice and has good food, lots of space to park close to the FBO, no fees for us small GA pilots, what else could you wish!
From Tom Clark on 03-Dec-2017

  These folks are the best! Great prices and great service from Will and Rosa! Want an example? When we had a sick passenger and were looking for an UBER for a ride to get Dramamine, Will loaned us his truck! For me, that's as good as it gets!
From M. Brown on 18-Aug-2017

  I just finished getting back into currency after an 8-year break from flying. The folks at Bartow made it an easy and enjoyable. The employees from the line to the office are TOP NOTCH! Jennifer and Karen are very efficient and friendly. Manny is a great instructor and the aircraft are meticulously maintained and fairly priced. Great people, great FBO, great airport!
From Becky Smith on 05-Aug-2017

  Great breakfast & service at Nini's. And Bartow Flying Service staff was SO nice and helpful. Karen always has a big smile, and Roger was kind enough to cart us down to Amphibians Plus to check out a Lake. Love BOW!
From Don Pease on 26-Jul-2017

  Best small FBO is the country.... Friendly staff, and extremely efficient!! The entire staff continually goes out of their way to ensure all the patrons depart with "a smile of their face!!" KEEP UP THE OUTSTANDING JOB!!!!
From Ross Bennett on 02-Jul-2017

  Always friendly and helpful line staff. They actually care about your business. Great SS fuel prices. Good food at Nini's restaurant as well.
From C. Oliver on 30-Jun-2017

  Flew in for breakfast. Quiet, piston friendly GA airport and FBO makes you feel welcome. Line crew was waiting as soon as I got to the ramp to park us. Breakfast at Nini's Landings was great, $3.75 special that day for eggs, hash browns, and toast, $5.50 for the same with bacon on the menu everyday. Make sure you take some time to walk around the FBO and walk through the museum room, its full of hundreds of past aviation artifacts from the airport's WW2 days. 100LL FS price was right and definitely beat anything, FS or SS, in Orlando so I topped off the Cessna. No ramp charge, will return...

  The self-serve card reader was inoperative and we were treated with truck service at SS price. Hope the card reader is fixed by now. Great folks running the airport!
From Wayne Connor on 27-Apr-2017

  Our Thursday Lunch Bunch has had nothing but excellent service from Bartow Flying Service. Fuel is fairly priced and the staff is always courteous and efficient. Unfortunately last Thursday (4/20) we had a fringe camp follower become very argumentative with the office staff over self-serve versus full-serve fuel pricing. This in no way should reflect on the positive relationship we have had with this FBO. We are unanimous in the opinion that Bartow is now and will continue to be one of our favorite destinations.
From Drew Gillett on 20-Apr-2017

  FBO manager Jennifer was most adamant about not providing self serve price to our 15-plane lunch group on Thursday as they had provided before. Seems as though it is too much trouble to pump fuel during lunch. In any case convenient self-fuel is available nearby. Since our group and all pilots can choose which airports are most hospitable and most effective and appreciate business it is obvious this one should be taken out of the rotation despite the nice restaurant.
From Steve Schoettle on 13-Apr-2017

  Perfect Sun-n-Fun airport to land at, and not face the multitude of planes at Lakeland. Service wonderful, good fuel price, good rental car service, and great on site restaurant. Easy drive to Lakeland.
From Billy Helsabeck on 13-Apr-2017

  I arrived on a Friday for the weekend conclusion of Sun n Fun. The airport was packed with visitors, but they nonetheless managed to park me for the weekend and shuttle me back and forth between airplane and their terminal. Extremely helpful. Enterprise Rents a Car had a desk set up for the SnF event as well. Could not have been treated better... And I was NOT flying a $million dollar airplane. Can't wait to return next year. Andů Their self-serve fuel price was very competitive, even with their captive audience.
From Drew Gillett on 31-Mar-2017

  New restaurant is great. Low prices and great free sides, onion rings, and sweet potato fries etc. Also 8$ off if you fill up on weekend. Have SnF wristbands and shuttle. Burgers on Tues. and Sat. only except SnF week no hot water in restroom and inadequate taxi signs on departure.
From Chuck Snipes on 16-Nov-2016

  Flew in for several days in October in a C182. Marshaled parking right up front. Let my family picking me up drive out to the plane to load the luggage. When I told them I would be staying a few days, they offered to move the plane and tie it down for me. Every time I went back out to fly the staff was super helpful. Even got a Thank You card from them in the mail. The small museum in the airport is very interesting. Great FBO and Staff!!
From Mike Dwyer on 14-Oct-2016

  Flew into KBOW on a Sunday for breakfast in my single engine experimental. Line guy directed me to parking right in front of the terminal building and restaurant. No one chased me down for a landing fee/ramp fee or anything else. The new restaurant is the old restaurant with new owners. Very nice place. Nini's Landings phone is 863-875-5789 open Tues to Sunday 7 to 11am for breakfast and 11am to 3pm for lunch. Prices range from $4 to $8 so it is definitely affordable and was a great breakfast! The tower there is also very friendly.
