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 operator, Albuquerque and Colorado Springs provide line service for transient aircraft, and 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 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.

  Just had an excellent experience at Cutter DVT. We experienced a last minute diversion due to bad weather in the Phoenix area. The cutter team handled our unexpected arrival with outstanding customer service. The entire team went above and beyond to find us hangar space. Carl, Shawn, Ash, Matt, Gage, Chase and Thomas quickly worked to create space in the hangar for us and we were able to keep the aircraft out of the thunderstorms. If you're looking for top notch customer service next time you fly into the Phoenix area, look no further than Cutter DVT!

  Just as we arrived, a strong rain hit the field. In spite of this, the entire line crew along with CSR Anna were waiting on the ramp with umbrellas. They helped with the baggage and rental cars at the plane. They were soaked. Abigail was at the desk and was efficient, kind, and helpful. Hats off to the entire evening shift crew on 7-25-2022. We departed early morning 7-27 and the day shift crew was also good to deal with. First class service!!

  Great service and friendly staff. I stopped here on a cross-country from CA to NC. I definitely recommend them for a stop in the greater Phoenix area.
From Charles Schneider on 10-Dec-2021

  Wow! What wonderful service from this FBO. Greeted warmly and with a magnificent smile by Carl who took care of all our needs. The manager Tara and all of the staff and line people were equally nice and very competent. We didn't have the biggest airplane in the facility, but you wouldn't know it from the service we received. Highly recommend.

  I've been into Cutter 2 times in the last 6 months. Had excellent service both times. I used the crew car on the first visit and purchased fuel. The second trip, they arranged a rental car for my passengers that were staying a week for Dr visits.
From Stuart Phillips on 04-Jun-2021

  KDVT is a convenient airport to access the Phoenix & Scottsdale area and Cutter is the FBO of choice! Professional and friendly folks who take great care of the aircraft, crew and passengers. Special thanks to David who patiently helped us load way too much baggage and a large German Shepherd into our aircraft! Truly a great guy and professional line personnel! If you get a chance and Cutter still has it, their own Green Chili salsa is excellent! Great on eggs!
From George Huseman on 01-Jun-2021

  The entire staff at Deer Valley was excellent!! All services were on time and professionally completed. Ashton was especially helpful with our needs. She is a shining star for your company. All the CSR's and Line personnel were on spot on and in time!!!

  A shout out for Cutter fueler Ryan. He always provides prompt, courteous, conscientious service. Thanks!
From Jeff Dahle on 16-Apr-2021

  Excellent staff and experience at Cutter! Thank you for the professionalism and courtesy!
From Mike Toft on 11-Feb-2021

  After getting a late start from KHND, could not make MMES by closing so stopped overnight. What a pleasure it was. Paula and Ashee were perfect, arranged hotel and rental car instantly, helped us with the airplane and ramp access; were friendly and professional. I would defiantly recommend Cutter Aviation at Deer Valley with great service.
From Robert Ohrenberg on 24-Nov-2020

  Flew in to KDVT to pick up a new puppy. Our Bonanza was parked right in front of the door, the rental car was brought out to the plane, and the Linemen helped us get everything into the car. On departure, had a [electric] propeller problem and Vohn and Ana went out of their way to get us the help we needed so I (an A&P myself) could fix the problem and get us on our way. Appreciate the professionalism, friendliness, and the help. This will be our FBO of choice on future trips (son and daughter in law live in Scottsdale).
From Chris Howard on 06-Oct-2020

  We fuel at this location very often, although I have never had a bad experience with any of their employees, which are all top notch. Today Carlos Zuniga assisted fueling our helicopter. Carlos was extremely quick, efficient and really stood out as an employee which takes pride in his work and work ethic. Thank you Carlos for your hard work and dedication. The world needs more hard workers like Carlos!!
From Tyler Streit on 20-Aug-2020

  Excellent service from Cutter! Global Express for 3 nights, extremely fair prices and some of the best service I have ever seen in my career! We arrived early in the morning with some off-the-cuff requests, and Carl met us at the gate with a smile. David then provided extremely professional and prompt service for fueling and all aircraft needs. Inside special thanks to Ana and Amy for their prompt and excellent service. We were able to depart early and had everything we needed and more. BRAVO and well done. Will return again!
From Bill Gardner on 06-Dec-2019

  My Bonanza couldn't have been parked further from Cutter... Row 50 at the north hangars. But after my phone call, 16 year pro Miguel Carrasco and his fuel truck were there in a very reasonable time, and Miguel even apologized for not arriving across two busy runways quicker! Tara and her DVT Cutter team are solid and enjoyable pros that get the job done. Thanks!
From Paul Fox on 03-Dec-2019

  Needed an afternoon jump start for a discharged battery in a Malibu. Cutter sent a mechanic out immediately by golf cart to the tiedown area to assist with his battery booster. Patiently assisted me with the start and buttoned everything up once running. I've found their customer service staff and line guys to be extremely attentive and helpful. I get my maintenance done at their PHX facility, but they have taken care of me at DVT without even knowing that fact.
From Leslie Briggs on 22-Oct-2019

  First class service at Cutter Aviation. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Repeat visitor and always a pleasure. Thank you to Carl on line service and Vohn for finding us a hotel and personally providing a ride to hotel.

From Greg Richards on 15-Oct-2019

  This is a great FBO. Flew everything for my daughter's dorm room in for college freshman year. My Enterprise rental pickup was at the plane before I could exit. The linemen helped me unload a LOT of college supplies. They stored my O2 bottle inside for a week. On leaving, I left my rental car early in the morning. When I called Enterprise upon landing, Cutter had already notified them and rental car had been returned. Seriously top notch service even for a piston driver.
