  Facility is a little dated but clean and complete with what passengers and crew may need. Line crew is very professional, prompt, and willing to help in anyway they can. Fuel prices are really good. Runway and taxiways looked basically like new. Highly recommend Rocket Aviation.
From Barry Harper on 02-Apr-2021

  I stop at KPVW at least twice a year moving a passenger between Texas and New Mexico. I always stop at Rocket Aviation for fuel and rest stop. Crew is always friendly and eager to help. Great fuel prices. Lineman came out twice to tell me about facilities available and assist with "self serve" fueling. Took advantage of the pilot lounge to eat some lunch and a short snooze. Easy to get into and out of KPVW and cross runways favor almost any wind West Texas can throw at you.

  Quick and easy fuel stop with terrific people. Neat airport. Thanks!
From Melvin Anderson on 09-Oct-2020

  FBO was friendly and helped out a lot. I was able to use a courtesy car to get to my hotel that night. Reasonably priced gas. Stopped on my trip east and then again on the return just because they were especially nice.
From Larry Driskill on 26-Sep-2020

  As always, great service from Rocket today. Hardly ever do I need just fuel. I also need a potty and a bottle of water. Rocket has 'em along with courtesy cars and maintenance near at hand. Full marks.
From Kris Ostrowski on 30-May-2020

  Great Texas hospitality alongside a very nice airport with great fuel prices. Trying out their maintenance for my annual (Piper Comanche) as these guys came highly recommended from someone I trust.
From Tom Gray on 09-May-2020

  We dropped in for fuel and were simply delighted. Easy in, easy out, nice FBO, excellent facilities, nice folks, great fuel prices. While we did not spend the night, it seems there are several close by hotels. We were treated so well, we made sure to pass through on the return trip.
From Barry Harper on 01-Apr-2020

  Stopped in at KPVW again on 3/31/2020. Same great service. Best fuel prices in the Panhandle. Always a friendly voice on the Unicom. FBO is clean and has most anything a pilot might need. Easy in, easy out when passing near KLBB.
From Andrei Razsadin on 11-Jan-2020

  Late night flight Picking up my 340A from Genesys/JAG in TX, to head to Vegas. Recognized Ill need a stop for fuel, I decided to plan a stop here, as fuel prices were respectable. Well flight in was wet. Cold and 35Kt cross winds get it on the ground and temps were 29 deg (miserable). FBO was closed @ 9pm, Fueled/hands frozen, got back into the plane and battery was dead!!! Well call the number on the door and man answered said hed be right down... I felt horrible for bothering this nice man who showed up with a smile. I offered to pay for his time and he respectful refused. He quickly jumped me and I was off back home. I still feel horrible but he was an angel who helped me. Thank you sir! I will be back to buy a shirt from the FBO and shake your hand. Thank you Thank you!!
From Eoin Guiry on 21-Dec-2019

  Excellent runways, awesome FBO, free courtesy car, awesome restaurants near by... Oh ya and the cheapest avgas around! Why wouldn't you stop here?
From Barry Harper on 25-Oct-2019

  Stopped at PVW on the way from Texas to New Mexico. Usually stop here 1-3 times a year. Fuel prices are good and self-serve pumps work great. FBO is clean and everyone is friendly and helpful. Airport is easy in easy out. Much better than the big town of Lubbock.
From Carol Ann Garratt on 06-Oct-2019

  Read the reviews and decided to stop overnight. Mark and others are extremely helpful and courteous. Gave me a courtesy car and made hotel recommendations. Great stop. Thank you.
From James Cole on 27-Aug-2019

  Friendly gents willing to fuel you off the truck or let you do it yourself at the SS pump, ice-cold lounge, clean restrooms, and great SS price.
From Kirk S - KGYI on 30-Jan-2019

  Wife and I have made a habit of stopping here. Small FBO that has everything going for it. Courteous and helpful desk staff, great avgas price, comfortable digs in which to hangout and take a breather. We used to stop up at Tradewinds on our trips West, but Rocket has made that obsolete. Airport has great runways too. Hope this FBO stays in business, like forever...
From Dave Foley on 18-Nov-2018

  Cold with strong north winds and still the FBO staff gladly topped off the plane, and let us - including the dogs - rest in the lounge. WILL be a regular stop in the panhandle.
From Barry Harper on 11-Nov-2018

  Made a quick fuel stop at Plainview on Nov 4. Great fuel prices, friendly people manning the FBO. Everything you could ask for from an FBO. Easy in Easy out.
From Bill Hoglan on 25-Sep-2018

  Easy in and out. Quick and friendly service. Fuel by truck or pump.
