From Ray Van Den Langenbergh on 06-Mar-2019

  This is by far the most pleasant experience I ever had at any FBO. Since just a friend and I traveling to COLD Chicago I took my little A36 to Gary and visited the Gary Jet Center. First of all I flew in from Florida, snow expected and temperatures in the single digits while we were staying there for 8 days I wanted a hangar. Hangar rate was VERY reasonable (less than parking our rental at the Hyatt). Dennis Montgomery the line specialist let us bring our luggage into the heated hangar upon departure do the preflight and sit in he plane before opening the hangar and towing us onto the ramp ready to start. Cynthia Polk at the front desk was just amazing, pleasant, and so very sweet! All in all an amazing experience for our little N97GW, we felt like jet setters and will for sure come back to here on future trips! OUTSTANDING!!!! Thank YOU Gary Crew! You all were just the best!
From Richard Camara on 26-Nov-2018

  Cindy Polk and Dennis Montgomery were excellent service folks. Both individuals did an outstanding job for the crew and passengers. Very helpful with rental Cars and great Hangar service with bad weather as we put our Aircraft in the Hangar during our stay. The Jet Center is a very nice FBO. I have flown for over 35 years in Corporate Aviation.
From James Bradley on 11-Oct-2018

  I returned this week to Gary Jet Center after several years. Wow, what an impressive new facility. But even more, their old service attitude remains. Particularly Dennis Montgomery, one of their line specialists, had a service attitude so great that I will return again and again, whenever business takes me to Chicago. From a ride to the train station, making sure I got on the train, picking me up on my return, putting my plane in the hangar because of thunderstorms with my having to ask, what more can I say. Plus quicker ins/outs than any other Chicago airport and much more cost effective fuel prices. KGYY and the Gary Jet Center are terrific.
From Chris Loemker on 18-Sep-2018

  Great facilities, outstanding line service. Dennis is the man, the myth, the legend.
From Mitchell Wilson on 28-Aug-2018

  As a local part 91 operator, we make weekly stops at KGYY's Jet Center for fuel and pilot breaks. Gary Jet center offers exceptional service and state of the art facilities that keep us coming back. Hot coffee in the winter, cold waters in the summer, and comfortable accommodations year round!

From John Kloster on 19-Aug-2018

  Dennis Montgomery is the best Line Specialist I have ever met. He makes you feel like you are family at the Gary Jet Center as do each of the other people with whom I have had contact at GJC. Today, a busy day with the Air Force Thunderbirds and support personnel at GJC, he took time out to show my grandson the time of his life. I wish all FBO's were this good. Above and beyond. Every time.
From Chris Martin on 26-Jul-2018

  Really like the new FBO! Everyone here is fantastic! Dennis and Cynthia have always gone the extra mile to help us out. Thanks!
From Kieran Jennings on 24-Jul-2018

  All of the folks at Gary Jet Center were very friendly and accommodating. Shining brightest was Dennis who met me in my 182 like I came in on Gulfstream. It was promising to be a hot day so he pulled it into the shade of the hangar so that the plane was cool and I preflighted in the comfort! Small airport personality and pricing with first rate services to handle any customer. Gary is my go to airport coming into Chicago.
From Doug Jones on 25-Jun-2018

  One of the best FBO's in the country. The staff goes out of their way to help you. Reasonable fuel prices and parking fees, beautiful facility and they will give you a ride to the train station and the South Shore Line will take you into the heart of the Loop on Chicago in under an hour. I always stop here on my transcontinental trips.
From John Robertson on 06-Jun-2018

  Gary Jet Center is a great FBO! Everyone there provides excellent service, especially Dennis Montgomery. We flew into KGYY for a week in Chicago, the staff at Gary Jet Center could not have been nicer or more helpful. They took us and picked us up at the train station and always had our plane ready when requested. They are the best FBO that we have visited!
From T. Turner on 25-Apr-2018

  Great service! Friendly Staff! Nice facility!
From Kenny Wilson on 30-Mar-2018

  While stopping overnight in Gary, Indiana on a cross country Cirrus SR22 trip, I experienced probably the nicest FBO in the USA! Wow! I'm impressed! (& they have awards to show for it) The FBO is huge and brand new, but way more important was the amazing customer service from Gary Jet Center's staff. Dennis helped me with transportation needs more than once, Cynthia and Simone are super friendly and treated this piston pilot like a G5 owner. Their crew lounges are great and they even have a new, championship ping pong table to pass the time. 1 stop here & like me, you may just go out of your way to include Gary Jet Center for your next fuel stop or layover for business in Chicago.
From Jeffrey Kyff on 18-Mar-2018

  Wonderful new facility. Clean, modern, spacious, welcoming. Friendly staff, very customer service oriented. Enjoyed my visit. I'll be back. Many thanks to Chauncey, Cynthia and their staff. Easy low traffic alternative to Chicago's busy airfields. EASY, fast and CHEAP access to the South shore Rail to Millennium station at the foot of the miracle mile/Michigan Ave. Friendly helpful conductors a pleasure to deal with. If you need and alternate use KSBN. Same rail line starts there and ends at Millennium station in Chicago.
From Gordon Feingold on 19-Feb-2018

  I've been a happy customer for a while now, but last week was my first time in their brand new FBO facility. All I can say is WOW! It's gorgeous, huge, plush, and has everything a pilot or passenger could want, including private relaxation rooms. Service was, as always, impeccable and prompt, and pricing is much better than Midway. If you're headed to Chicago, this is the place to go.
From Tod Peavy on 12-Nov-2017

  Some of the most helpful and friendliest people in aviation. A most stop when going to Chicago and they will save you money on fuel and fees!
From John Kloster on 05-Sep-2017

  Dennis Montgomery, Line Specialist is the friendliest person I have ever met at an FBO, followed by everybody else I have met at Gary Jet Center. The place really feels like home. Highly recommended!
From Kris J. Layson on 01-Sep-2017

  Been coming to Gary Jet for several years. Each time just like the last. Extremely courteous and helpful regardless of what I am flying. Dennis and Cynthia are the dynamic duo of Gary Jet. Always going out of their way to help. Forgot keys once and they loaned me their company car to drive to Evanston, and back! If coming to Chicago, don't go anywhere else. They will even drive you to the South Shore Line to catch the train. If the train is running late, they wait with you. Who does that? The Best.
From Tim Fallon on 21-Aug-2017

  Our experience at the Gary Jet Center could not have been more positive. A car brought around for luggage, transportation to and from a local hotel was provided, the plane was brought around and fueled before we arrived for departure, and best of all everyone was friendly and courteous and most anxious to be of service, especially Cynthia, Dennis, and Will Davis. The facility is clean, modern, and comfortable. This is a great way to fly to Chicago, yet the airport is Class D with a very easy layout and good tower. Cheers to a great FBO!
From Russell Thompson on 18-Aug-2017

  This one of the best FBOs in the country. They treat everyone like royalty whether they are flying a 152 or a Gulfstream. While every member has been awesome, Dennis and Cynthia stand out with exceptional friendly service, always going out of their way to accommodate visitors. We fly in there a few times every year in a Piper Arrow and are amazed at how well we are treated. On top of that, the bill for fuel & fees is always very reasonable. For anyone going to downtown Chicago, flying into Gary and taking train downtown is one of the best ways to travel! A+++++.
From Dan Ellingson on 09-Aug-2017

  Dennis, line service and Cynthia, CSR were awesome. Nice people giving great service.
From Mike Gamble on 12-Jul-2017

  I have been using the Gary Jet Center for 8+ years. Everyone at this FBO is terrific, especially Cynthia at the desk and Dennis on the line. I highly recommend this FBO to anyone looking to hangar your plane or flying to the Chicago area.
From Dan Weyant on 09-Jul-2017

  Flew in last week in my RV-9A with my daughter. She is considering Northwestern for college and wanted to visit the school. We were treated wonderfully. Great service, transportation into town was quickly arranged. I needed an oil change and it was done as promised and for the quoted price. Thanks for a great experience.
From Larry Richards on 15-May-2017

  Dennis Montgomery and Cynthia Polk are the epitome of what excellent line service is they just don't come any better. 25 yr. + customer...
From Vikki Stewart on 15-May-2017

  We fly a Piper Meridian and make frequent stops to Gary for refueling. We are always greeted by Cynthia Polk at the front desk and Dennis Montgomery the line specialist. In all of our journeys to many FBO's, Gary is our favorite due to how courteous, always nice and offers any assistance we need. If we do not see them several times a year, we miss them!!
From Robert Braun on 13-Apr-2017

  Been her about a week, been here before and Cynthia Polk at the front desk has saved my life, mostly by making sure dealing with me and my airplane everything runs right and smooth. She got me stored in the hangar for less than a tie down was going to cost. That's over and above. Then there Dennis Montgomery who has implemented the quality service I have enjoyed and quality FBO operations. Dennis has my plane out, ready to go whenever I need it. When I come back, he's there ready to pick back up where we left off. Thanks, Dennis for making us feel welcome and our business appreciated. We do appreciate yours and Cynthia's efforts.
From Keith Mccoy on 02-Apr-2017

  Visited on 3/28/2017 got excellent service. Dennis took extra care. Would recommend this FBO. Fuel prices were great and the service from everyone was better.
From Kathleen Hegenberger on 16-Oct-2016

  I couldn't say enough good things about Gary Jet Center. First of all we were greeted by Dennis.... He is the friendliest guy (Give him a raise, he's worth it!). He took care of our luggage and us. There was a storm and he put our airplane in the hangar. Everyone at this FBO was friendly and they are tops at customer service. There is a car service that will drive you into Chicago.... A 35-minute drive. Excellent driver and clean car. They will also take you to the train station if you want to take that into town. Outside Chicago's busy airspace.... Quick in and out. If you are coming in from the east or the south this is the place to land. Two runways. Gary Jet Center you get my vote for FBO of the year.
From Mario Manzano on 01-Oct-2016

  Flew in my Aztec for a medical convention in downtown Chicago. Outstanding facility, very clean and updated. Staff were very pleasant, attentive and professional. Stay there for one night. Landing and overnight fees were very reasonable. I will recommend this FBO to as many people as possible.
From Andy Miller on 18-Sep-2016

  Had an excellent quick turn this afternoon at the Gary Jet Center. 100LL was amazingly reasonable for the area (although there was a $3.90 municipal landing fee even though I bought gas). Excellent facility and even though I arrived in a C152 the staff treated me the same as if I had arrived in a jet - marshaled in and parked right in front of the door. Easy to get in and out VFR with the Chicago lakeshore flyway, and both Tower and Approach were easy to work with even though they were very busy.
From Brian Fox on 25-Jul-2016

  We flew into Gary with a last minute change of schedule and were very pleasantly surprised with some of the best service from an FBO that I have had in a long time. This ranged all the way from the great personalities of all the employees we met to the FBO putting our aircraft (Gulfstream V) in a hangar to keep it out of the weather before we could even call and request it. We will be back!!
From Kevin Bradford on 28-Apr-2016

  Cynthia at the desk and Dennis on the line are always happy to see you. The friendly, professional service provided here is second to none. The best service at the best price. Gary Jet Center is always happy to help and has the cheapest fuel both sides of the Mississippi.
