From Lindsey Moreland on 06-Dec-2021

  Excellent FBO and airport! I initially chose B Coleman over Midway because Jet A was $3/gallon cheaper with CAA. The service was great, and they have an overhang large enough for a Gulfstream, which was a lifesaver in the December rain. The FBO is gorgeous with a movie room and even exercise room. In afternoon rush hour traffic, GYY was about ten minutes closer than MDW to downtown Chicago. Not to mention the taxi in was less than 30 seconds and I got cleared for the visual ten miles out. This will definitely be our new go-to for Chicago visits!

  Stopped here to hand Lifeline Pilots passengers to another pilot. Wonderful facility, friendly staff, no fees for charitable missions. Fuel only. Would definitely recommend.
From Bill Helfand on 13-May-2021

  I always get great service from the nice folks at B. Coleman. Maria is a standout professional who provides excellent, personalized care.
From Scott Baker on 26-Apr-2021

  Came hear from most of the morning and met with Chris and Dale. Both are super friendly and helped out tremendously! The line staff was on top of everything and got us fueled right away. Inside the FBO is super nice! The cafe is awesome (try the sparkling water). They have a big screen TV in their pilot's lounge, so I hope to get stuck here for Super Bowl. Finally they have a workout facility, which I did not know until later. Great place to stop for fuel and service. Will definitely be back. Thank you B. Coleman for everything.
From D Petersen on 01-Mar-2021

  Stopped in to get lunch and run an errand. Called over the radio about 20 miles out requesting a crew car and top-off. They marshaled me right in, parked me under the awning, pulled the crew car up to the front door and left it running with the heat on. Super friendly, clean FBO, fresh cup of coffee before my departure. I happily filled the crew car up with gas before returning. Will be back!
From James Hall on 22-Jul-2020

  The service from Coleman was very good. However, I had them arrange a Hertz rental car for me, which has been awful. Shame on me for not asking the rate. When I saw the contract it was $155 per day for a mid size SUV. Further, I turned the car in on the due date, leaving the car on the ramp almost in front of the door. Hertz has been calling me for three days threatening legal action for failure to return the car. I've made two calls to Hertz (they don't answer), two calls to the local Hertz office (they say they will take care of it), and two calls to Coleman. Beware if you are renting a car through Coleman.

  I have been here in an SR20, a Cessna Mustang, and a Pilatus PC-12. Same great service every time.
From Ken Denning on 09-Mar-2020

  Cleared customs GYY, they waited and took care of our passengers. Customs was over 30 min late for our set arrival time. We were able to fuel at customs ramp, no other aircraft scheduled to clear. B. Coleman set the bar high for what a signature FBO should be.
From George Andraos on 05-Jan-2020

  Took the family to Chicago for couple days over the holidays. The service at B. Coleman was excellent. Thanks Dale and the team!
From Gregory Ricca on 04-Oct-2019

  Every visit we have made to this FBO has been a pleasure.
From Randy Africano on 23-Sep-2019

  I have based at the Gary Chicago airport since 2015 and during those years I've had the opportunity to work with the entire staff at B. Coleman. What a friendly, knowledgeable and professional group of people! The staff is always willing to help in any way they can, my plane is always put under the canopy whenever possible and always in inclement weather. Fresh apples, popcorn, peppermint patties and Starbucks coffee are on the house and for all of this... The fuel is reasonably priced and the facility is new and beautiful. It's a straight 35 minutes on the Skyway to the Loop so do yourself a favor and stay out of the airspace "rat race" by heading to the Gary Chicago International Airport and B. Coleman Aviation specifically. You'll appreciate the savings in time, money and aggravation.
From Tom Stehler on 19-Jul-2019

  Beautiful facilities and friendly staff.
From David J. Fogarty on 22-Jun-2019

  Jasmine and the rest of the team did a super job for us this afternoon. They all went way above and beyond the call of duty. While we were only in a T-182T it felt like I was in the CJ-2 which I fly as well. This is a must stop when going to Chicagoland. Highly recommended!
From Ken Denning on 30-Mar-2019

  Nice new facility, good line and CSRs. Large hangers. Covered ramp parking. Hotels about 15min drive. Comfortable lounge, showers available.
From Dan Vossman on 12-Sep-2018

  Fast friendly line service, great CAA fuel prices, outstanding CSRs, awesome facility and crew lounge. By far the best way in and out of Chicago if you're coming from the east.
