In this past calendar year, Kenmore Aero Services has been making real, substantive impact within the community by providing support and contributing in meaningful ways to various groups and organizations.

Below are just some of the schools, groups, and organizations who have voiced their support in gratitude for the contributions and impact Kenmore Aero Services has already made.

No other FBO is as convenient, friendly, and pilot-focused.

I love that Kenmore Aero Services is at Boeing Field. They are the FBO of choice when I fly in. No other FBO is as convenient, friendly, and pilot-focused. Great FBOs are becoming more of a rarity, and we need to preserve them wherever possible. Our future as the greatest nation in aviation depends on it.

Jeff Heinen

It's almost like being part of a family.

Exceptional FBO, fantastic staff, definitely interested in supporting all customers regardless of the size of aircraft or fuel bill. It's almost like being part of a family. Definitely a wise choice on the part ofAngel Flight West to shift to Kenmore for Angel Flight connections. Typically, the personal attention and sense of mission expedites these critical transfers with unexcelled professionalism.

During the past year, Kenmore Aero Services has provided numerous benefits to the GA pilot community…

To Whom It May Concern, Please consider this message my official support of Kenmore Aero Service's proposal to be accepted and its lease to be renewed in it's current location at Boeing Field/King County International (KBFI). As the creator and founder of Flights Above The Pacific Northwest (FATPNW), an active community of over 4,800 pilots and general aviation enthusiasts in the Northwest region, I can attest to the fact that Kenmore Aero Services continually supports general aviation at KBFI and offers ample incentives for GA pilots to make Boeing Field a routine flight destination. During the past year, Kenmore Aero Services has provided numerous benefits to the GA pilot community, including reduced prices on fuel, free transient parking for aircraft, full use of their facilities, whether it be simply an area to study or a place to relax between flights, and even hosting a truly welcoming Open House that drew hundreds of guests from around the region, helping to bring awareness of what an incredible airport KBFI truly is. In a time where GA is alive and well in our region, it is increasingly evident that KBFI benefits greatly from having Kenmore Aero Services on the airport. They have an open door policy for all GA pilots and guests, which makes KBFI a friendly and inviting location to land. Within Flights Above The Pacific Northwest (FATPNW), I have heard only extremely positive comments about the services offered at Kenmore Aero Services, and FATPNW Members love having a place to feel at home when they land at KBFI. I highly recommend Kenmore Aero Services be granted a full lease at their current location. Sincerely, Brice Van Baren

...go above and beyond for customer service and that they are a local, family owned company; they know my children, they know my dog.

I fly Kenmore Express weekly. In the busy months, I fly Kenmore Express and Kenmore Air Harbor twice a week. As a small business, I value the approach of Kenmore Air. Kenmore Air Harbor AND Kenmore Express AND Kenmore Aero Services have excellent personnel; they have willingness to go above and beyond for customer service and that they are a local, family owned company; they know my children, they know my dog. In addition to being familiar with Kenmore Express, I have also visited FBO’s in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Boeing Field has an opportunity to provide a FBO to Kenmore Aero Service who are honest, local and who genuinely supports General Aviation. Kenmore Aero Services is representative of a NW atmosphere that provides a different FBO service at Boeing Field. It is easy for large corporations to make a commitment to GA and community during the leasehold negotiations. However, I doubt those organizations will follow through in the long run. Given Kenmore Express’s long term commitment to Boeing Field with Kenmore Express, KAS is the right balance to be the next FBO at Boeing Field. With Kenmore Aero Services, my son and many other young aviation hopefuls will be able to utilize Boeing Field to become the pilots they hope to be. Granting the leasehold to anyone other than Kenmore Aero Services, shows a lack of diversity, and a lack of support for local and community based businesses at Boeing Field. Please support Kenmore Aero Services to secure a long term lease at Boeing Field.

They also provide good service to Bloodworks NW...

Nice place to stop. Pleasant employees! Great fuel prices, too. They also provide good service to Bloodworks NW in their collection of blood flown in by Angel Flight pilots.

Thomas F. Howard

Thanks for the wonderful experience, Kenmore Aero. Greatly appreciated.

I don't have a plane. I have friends that do. But was invited to an event at Kenmore Air this summer (Open House). We were treated like an extension of the family. We were able to crawl through a C130. One of the hosts took us up in a plane. This was one of the highlights of the summer for myself and my 11 y/o son. He was fascinated by the ability to see Seattle from an aerial perspective. This was his first trip in a small GA craft. The way we were treated by a local business was amazing. I never had a proper vehicle to express my gratitude... so I guess I will do it here. Thanks for the wonderful experience, Kenmore Air. Greatly appreciated.

Brandon Dow

Kenmore Aero Services at Boeing Field has become a great asset in the aviation community.

In just a short time, Kenmore Aero Services at Boeing Field has become a great asset in the aviation community. As a Spokane-based pilot, it's great to have an FBO at the big city airport that understands the needs of small aircraft operators. It's a pleasant surprise after using other providers at BFI who prefer to cater to the big biz jet customers. Let's keep single-engine piston aircraft and pilots a part of a great airport.

Al Gilson

I believe Kenmore Aero fills a necessary void for pilots like myself, especially in this age of corporate jets...

I strongly urge King County and Boeing Field management to continue to see Kenmore Aero as a critical link to GA in the Puget Sound aviation community. Although I fly into Boeing Field infrequently, perhaps 4-6 times per year, its nice to know there is a FBO that caters to individuals like myself. I believe Kenmore Aero fills a necessary void for pilots like myself, especially in this age of corporate jets with related high end services. Please consider them a valued portion of our GA landscape. I hope to see Kenmore Aero and the good work they do at Boeing Field now and in the future!

RICHARD LEDUC

It would be an absolute shame to see GA pushed out of BFI for more corporate traffic.

It is necessary to provide services for General Aviation and Kenmore does this exceedingly well

It was wonderful to learn that Kenmore Aero had taken over the FBO at Boeing Field. We finally had a welcoming, affordable portal into Seattle. Since last summer we have used Kenmore perhaps 10 times to visit family, attend business meetings, and pick up and drop off Seattle residents traveling by air around Puget Sound. The large aircraft, corporate customers already have a choice of providers on the field. It is necessary to provide services for General Aviation and Kenmore does this exceedingly well. Please extend Kenmore's lease so that GA will have an affordable portal into Seattle.

George Steed

...aviation has been a large part of the Seattle community for many years, and will continue to thrive, if local businesses, such as this one, continue to serve the community the way they do today.

Kenmore Aero Services is a fantastic FBO. I got my PPL using planes that were based there, and did a lot of ground work at their facilities, as well. To this day, I continue to use airplanes that are based there (through Aviators-BFI). The task of finding a different FBO, or worse: a different airport, would be incredibly cumbersome, to me, and many others, who rely on Kenmore Aero for their GA needs. In addition to that, aviation has been a large part of the Seattle community for many years, and will continue to thrive, if local businesses, such as this one, continue to serve the community the way they do today.

Mikhail Skobov

I go out of my way to do business with good, locally owned and operated establishments, and would like to see Kenmore Aero Services remain the FBO at Boeing Field.

One of the things I love best about living in this area is that locally owned businesses are alive and well. This is because we the people, prefer to see the American dream of hard work and passion paying off for people like ourselves. I go out of my way to do business with good, locally owned and operated establishments, and would like to see Kenmore Aero Services remain the FBO at Boeing Field.

I enjoy the excellent service that I always receive at Kenmore

I enjoy the excellent service that I always receive at Kenmore when I visit their main location in Kenmore as I am on floats. I look forward to the same service in the off season when flying while on wheels. I have always avoided Boeing Field due to the issues of parking and fuel prices even though it is where I learned to fly. Can't wait to come back.

Greg Corrado

The location is perfect, the facilities are top-shelf, the office staff and line crew are friendly and professional, and the prices are more than reasonable.

After dreaming of flying for over 30 years, I finally found a fantastic club hosted by an amazing FBO. Kenmore Aero Services has been instrumental in the progress I've made this year toward my private certificate, and it just wouldn't be as pleasant and rewarding anywhere else. The location is perfect, the facilities are top-shelf, the office staff and line crew are friendly and professional, and the prices are more than reasonable. Frankly, I love everything about Kenmore Aero, a little pocket of locally-owned class. I feel that it should be held up as an example of 'GA-centric FBO, done right.'

JASON FISH

Kenmore Aero Services is a positive force

Kenmore Aero Services is a positive force for GA at KBFI, and I know I speak for many GA pilots when I say that they have made BFI a desirable place to fly into. I firmly believe that BFI would not see as much GA traffic if Kenmore Aero Services was not located on the airport.

Kara O'Laughlin

With a FBO of Kenmore Air's caliber on the field that caters to the future of aviation and independent flyers, a contributing link to the success of the region is forged.

Seattle is a dynamic city that recognizes aviation. We champion Boeing and it's impact on the local economy. In no small way General Aviation contributes all the same attributes. Having a close in airport like Boeing Field that welcomes small and independent business travelers, tourists and local pilots alike, only enhances the vibrancy of the city. General Aviation is also a great contributor to the local economy. With a FBO of Kenmore Air's caliber on the field that caters to the future of aviation and independent flyers, a contributing link to the success of the region is forged. Keep them on the field!

George Lyden

We need a good fbo on bfi and kenmore is it...

Ensuring avgas operators have a welcoming facility is vital for a healthy mix of traffic.

There is no doubt that business/corporate aviation is vital to Boeing Field's long-term success. That said, there is no reason cast aside general aviation. The two can – and do – peacefully co-exist. Kenmore Aero Services has the stated goal of serving those of us who buy dozens (maybe) of gallons of fuel as opposed to hundred (or thousands) of gallons. Business/corporate operators already enjoy great service from multiple FBOs at Boeing Field. Ensuring avgas operators have a welcoming facility is vital for a healthy mix of traffic. Kenmore Aero Services' lease should be renewed.

Ben Sclair

Small FBOs are the backbone of GA in America; let's keep BFI part of that strength.

I value GA at BFI. Small FBOs are the backbone of GA in America; let's keep BFI part of that strength.

Jon Howell

If support of the general aviation community is important to KCIA, having Kenmore Aero Services on Boeing Field is one the best ways to show that support.

Kenmore Aero Services is a most welcome addition to BFI for general aviation pilots and aircraft owners. Their outstanding customer services rivals that of the very best FBO's that I have used the services of. If support of the general aviation community is important to KCIA, having Kenmore Aero Services on Boeing Field is one the best ways to show that support.

William S. Phillips

I was truly impressed by the outstanding personal attention provided us by the entire staff.

Thank you Kenmore Aero Services for the exceptional service we received from your staff during our last trip to Seattle. I was truly impressed by the outstanding personal attention provided us by the entire staff. Jason went out of his way to make sure we had everything taken care of for our flight up to British Columbia, including coordination of the aircraft registration with Canadian customs authorities. Having utilized other FBO's on Boeing Field since 1992, I can say that I am looking forward to visiting Kenmore Aero Services on my next trip to Seattle.

Richard Ulman

I have many reasons to fly in to Boeing Field but usually avoid the place due to the excessive costs of doing so.

I have many reasons to fly in to Boeing Field but usually avoid the place due to the excessive costs of doing so. If Kenmore expands their operations at BFI, the non-Gulfstream operators like myself will finally have a place to go that caters to our needs. I look forward to hearing positive news on their efforts.

Bill Sleeper

I learned to fly at Boeing Field but now own a plane I keep at Paine Field, which is much friendlier to aviation below the corporate jet level.

I learned to fly at Boeing Field but now own a plane I keep at Paine Field, which is much
friendlier to aviation below the corporate jet level. Boeing Field serves a vital safety function in this area. It has the lowest field elevation, 600 feet lower than Paine, along with the highest precision instrument landing aids, so it is the last, best chance for a landing when the weather is poor. It is vital to have that alternative to go to when small planes are unable to get into Paine or Renton, an option I have been forced to choose myself. But that only works if there is an FBO on the field for them to go to, one that doesn't punish pilots of small airplanes with high fees and services only appropriate for corporate fleets. Kenmore serves that vital function at BFI.

Dave Van Horn

The fbo offers the only alternative to big corporate chain fbos.

Kenmore Aero Services must stay at Boeing Field! The fbo offers the only alternative to big corporate chain fbos. I have spent a lot of time in their lounge waiting for clouds to lift and I am very great full of the friendly and welcoming environment they provide. GA is a dieing breed. Its places like Kenmore that will work to keep it alive.

Riley Silberman

Stay strong and stay there Kenmore, and I will fly in to give a hug.

Haven't flown in for a while as I don't know of many friendly folks. But would love to see a responsive FBO that we could stop by, say hi, and buy some gas and maybe pickup that Seattle friend. Stay strong and stay there Kenmore, and I will fly in to give a hug. Mark Donahue

Kenmore Aero is simply the best at BFI for providing excellent service to general aviation pilots like myself.

The Kenmore folks are always friendly and welcoming, the cookies are always fresh, and there's never a problem.

I have been flying from Kenmore Aero Services via Aviators Flight Service for as long as it's been Kenmore Aero. The Kenmore folks are always friendly and welcoming, the cookies are always fresh, and there's never a problem. I appreciate having a GA-friendly FBO on Boeing Field.

We have always been made to feel like family and we appreciate the service that Kenmore Aero Services has provided to us.

Kenmore Aero Services at Being Field is our lifeline to Seattle. We are based In Eugene Oregon and are in the process of growing our business office in Seattle. Your people have been so helpful each and every time we show up to meet the next customer, of solve the next production issue. We are always greeted with a smile, provided a vehicle (or vehicles) as needed for that days mission, fueled efficiently and helped with advice and directions for whatever we are trying to accomplish. We have always been made to feel like family and we appreciate the service that Kenmore Aero Services has provided to us. Thank you for a job well done

Kenneth Johnson

Kenmore Aero Service has always stood for what Americas all about; helping the 'Other Guy.'

October 12, 2016 At present I am not using Kenmore’s excellent service, however I will soon, again be using their outstanding service. In the pass I have been able to charter service all over Puget Sound from Kenmore Air. They have always been a cut above the rest because of the dedication to General Aviation, whether it’s fuel, a ride, a tour for school children, coffee and cookies, or parts chaser, financial support for the community or their service to the less fortunate, Kenmore Aero Service has always stood for what Americas all about; helping the 'Other Guy'. Respectfully submitted, Russell Henry Porterfield

Russell Henry Porterfield

Aviation should be inclusive and there should be providers, like yourself, for small private aircraft to remain based and visit KBFI.

Please remain at KBFI. I am more and more disheartened seeing the rich consume the limited space at KBFI with huge hangers. Aviation should be inclusive and there should be providers, like yourself, for small private aircraft to remain based and visit KBFI.

Jeff Dunaway

If it closes (Kenmore Aero Services) we have little reason to go there.

Please renew the lease for this business at Boeing Field. The service it provides is critical to the economic health and viability of of Boeing Field. If it closes we have little reason to go there.

William Dicksion

Having Kenmore Air Services at KBFI is like having family to come home to.

Having Kenmore Air Services at KBFI is like having family to come home to. These folks are nice, friendly and helpful. They worry about you and definitely look out for the little guy in his own aircraft. I want a family FBO operation to remain at Boeing Field - these are the folks to do that. So please, renew their lease, help them solidify their operations and keep room for the small GA operator that Kenmore Aero Services is at Boeing Field. Thanks!

Dave Tennesen

It is encouraging to see people and small businesses committed to the GA industry.

I am one of the proverbial Rusty Pilots considering getting current again. We attended to the Open House event as I try to stay informed on local GA businesses should I regain my currency and need services. The initial attraction was the name Kenmore Aero. I though it was part of the Kenmore Air operation. At the event I learned about the ownership structure. It is encouraging to see people and small businesses committed to the GA industry. Early in my career I worked for one of the GA airframe manufacturers. Should I need services, I would look for Kenmore Aero locally and companies like it at other airports.

Ron Redpath

It is important that Boeing Field remains a viable and open venue for GA flights and maintenance

The Pacific Northwest has a large and vibrant GA community of light aircraft. It is important that Boeing Field remains a viable and open venue for GA flights and maintenance, as one of the central airport hubs for the Puget Sound region. Kenmore Aero Services, with a long company heritage of building and supporting aviation in the Northwest, is a vital FBO to maintain that openness. I strongly support that Kenmore Aero Services should continue their lease with the full backing of Boeing Field which is, after all, a northwest community owned asset. It should continue to be accessible by a full range of community members.

Robert Hamilton

I have been a pilot at Bremerton for 15 years and have never flown to Boeing field because general aviation and small aircraft did not seem welcome other than at Kenmore Aero.

I have been a pilot at Bremerton for 15 years and have never flown to Boeing field because general aviation and small aircraft did not seem welcome other than at Kenmore Aero. If their lease is renewed, I will be able to get more familiar with Boeing Field. I really want to fly in to do the museum. My flying friends have similar views. Greg

Gregory Williams

Customer service is sometimes the buzz word in business, but the actual application becomes hard to spot. No so with Kenmore, their tail is always wagging.

It's great to have a GA friendly FBO at KBFI. Can't thank you enough for the personalized and friendly service that I've (we've) received on each visit. Customer service is sometimes the buzz word in business, but the actual application becomes hard to spot. No so with Kenmore, their tail is always wagging. Keep up the great work. We all appreciate your support of General Aviation.

Doug Haughton

We hope that Kenmore's influence with the County and near-future developments creates a growing positive impact to make BFI even more friendly for GA aircraft.

As I write this I'm communicating with individuals out of Bellevue's Intellectual Ventures who are using GA aircraft for various needs. They're reaching out to me for a specific need because of friendship and because they know I'm a pilot. Also, my company builds in Tacoma and our customers are from all over the country and Canada. Absolutely BFI General Aviation is critical to daily operations of our business and many others because BFI is a hub with spokes that extend far beyond the landing & take offs and the 'based aircraft.' The spokes are relationships and logistics. The need for BFI to be even more GA friendly is strong indeed. We hope that Kenmore's influence with the County and near-future developments creates a growing positive impact to make BFI even more friendly for GA aircraft. Specifically, Bonanzas, Mooney's, Cirrus', Cessnas, Pipers, etc. flown by owners/operators, individuals (and to some extent flight schools) have a business impact in industries such as boat building, gardening, truck bed manufacturing, and almost anything you can think of. All of these aircraft move people in and out of the area that are critical to many of the businesses that we interact with. Hopefully the County remains focused on the great potential beyond 'heavy jets' and 'corporate jets' because it seems to me that by volume of transactions, GA below 12,500lbs probably benefits the greater economy MORE than does the fewer larger transactions of the over 12,500lb. Thanks for being involved in this Jason, I'm happy to be available for more comment or interaction if needed.

Travis Brandt

Without your service it would be very difficult to arrange friends, family and business associates transportation to and from the Olympic Peninsula.

I have been using your service since you took over and have been very happy with the courteness and service I've received there! Without your service it would be very difficult to arrange friends, family and business associates transportation to and from the Olympic Peninsula. Thank you very much!! Sincerely, Warren Erickson

Boeing Field desperately needs the kind of GA friendly, lower cost FBO that Kenmore Aero promises to provide.

I have been an active pilot and flight instructor in the Seattle area since 1979. I base my airplane at Bremerton but frequent all of the Puget Sound airports. In that respect, Boeing Field is the obvious General Aviation hub; However, it has long ago ceased to be an attractive GA destination because of the high costs of fuel & service. My first introduction to BFI FBOs was the old Galvin Aviation. Initially they were GA friendly; then they started to demand a $25 daily usage fee plus exorbitant fuel prices. Wings Aloft was GA friendly but had little ramp space and eventually disappeared. I even received a expensive but erroneous landing fee invoice from the Airport administrator until I clarified that a Commander 114 is a single-engine, 4-place aircraft -- not a heavy twin. I was delighted to recently learn that Kenmore Aero Services had taken over the old AeroFlight FBO. I have flown with Kenmore as a passenger and received my float plane rating at Kenmore in the 1970s. They have always represented the finest in service and professionalism. So I was not surprised when I recently visited Kenmore Aero to deliver blood for Angel Flight West to see a friendly ground crew and office staff who welcomed me and efficiently unloaded to blood for delivery to Blood Works. Boeing Field desperately needs the kind of GA friendly, lower cost FBO that Kenmore Aero promises to provide. As little as a month ago I advised friends from Florida who were making a tour of the country in open cockpit airplanes to avoid Boeing Field when arriving in Seattle. I explained that Boeing, while ideally located in the heart of Seattle, was simply too expensive and use as their base field during their visit. Having recently visited Kenmore, I am changing my mind and recommending that they now target BFI in their itinerary. A long term presence by Kenmore, along with the FBO improvements they plan to make, will attract hundreds of more aircraft for the benefit of Boeing and the Seattle area.

Doug Hansmann

I strongly support continued service by Kenmore Aero Services at BFI...Having these services saves me valuable time.

I strongly support continued service by Kenmore Aero Services at BFI. Kenmore provides General Aviation services at REASONABLE prices, thereby providing access to Seattle , it's businesses and entertainment, and sporting venues to those of us for whom a corporate jet is not an option. The other corporate chain facilities on the field not only are NOT interested in servicing G/A aircraft, they actively discourage lighter aircraft via their attitudes, prices, and policies. Kenmore Aero Services continues the fine tradition of Aeroflight Executive Services, offering fast, efficient and frendly service to light aircraft, provided by a small locally owned, family run business.. In the 15 years that I have owned a small airplane I have come to BFI numerous times to conduct business meetings downtown, to attend concerts, Seahawks and Mariner games, to purchase tools and parts, and to pickup visiting family and friends arriving from SeaTac without having to endure Seattle's traffic for the three and a half hours it would otherwise take roundtrip from Arlington. Having these services saves me valuable time. If it were not available I simply wouldn't visit the city as often. I absolutely detest having to drive through Seattle's traffic. The very LAST thing BFI needs is another large corporate chain type FBO. Sincerely, Todd Bohon Lk. Goodwin, Wa.

Todd Bohon

I am very impressed with the new Kenmore Aero Services FBO at KBFI.

I am very impressed with the new Kenmore Aero Services FBO at KBFI. Their friendly and knowledgeable management and staff were a pleasure to work with for fuel and oxygen services. We really needed a more GA friendly facility at Boeing Field and I'm now a big fan of Michael and Douglas who are already making a positive difference in how I view operating in and out of Boeing Field.

Jim Posner

Kenmore is an ideal company to have as an FBO because they understand and support both commercial and GA operations.

Over the past 10 years, I have used BFI as a GA hub for dropping and picking up passengers. With its proximity to downtown Seattle BFI is also an ideal location to land and access the city. Kenmore is an ideal company to have as an FBO because they understand and support both commercial and GA operations. With a true understanding of the PNW, Kenmore addresses the true needs of GA In the local community. Great service!

Jamie Madonna

I love flying in there and you guys are the reason!

That you so much for the great work you do at BFI! I love flying in there and you guys are the reason! Thanks again!

Kenmore Aero Services makes it possible for me to experience Boeing Field…

Kenmore Aero Services makes it possible for me to experience Boeing Field, and makes Seattle far more accessible to me. While the Port parking at gate 5 is sometimes available and the service the port workers provide is good, they are often not able to accommodate me at the times I'd like to fly in. Kenmore has always been happy to have me, and I make a point of coming in with as much spare room in the tanks as is safe in order to maximize the gallons I can buy from this great business. Both line personnel and customer service reps inside make me feel welcome and eager to return. I know it sounds silly, but the friendly atmosphere at Kenmore has sometimes been the deciding factor in choosing what my flying adventure for the day will be.

Aaron Simpson

Kenmore makes Boeing field accessible to ordinary people who fly airplanes.

Nice to know that there is one outfit on Boeing Field that serves people like me when I fly our flying club airplane. Kenmore makes Boeing field accessible to ordinary people who fly airplanes. Clay Lacy and Landmark are really set up to serve operators and passengers of turbine airplanes. Making BFI an accessible Seattle experience for all aviators is what Kenmore does. They are an asset on Boeing Field.

Since Kenmore Air has been operating at Boeing Field, we feel truly welcome.

As an owner of a single engine airplane in the Puget Sound area, I believe it is vitally important that Boeing Field includes an FBO whose mission is to serve small GA aircraft. We fly often to Boeing Field, to visit our grandchildren, to pick up friends and family for adventures in the air. Boeing Field is Seattle's local airport; we count on being able to land there, purchase fuel at an affordable price, have our oxygen serviced for flights over the mountains, and simply the kind of support that small GA aircraft require. Since Kenmore Air has been operating at Boeing Field, we feel truly welcome. They provide a place that is glad to see us, have our business and not merely tolerate us while concentrating instead on corporate and business aviation as others do. Boeing Field is a large, busy airport and can be intimidating to small GA pilots. However, knowing there's an FBO at Boeing which truly wants our business makes it less intimidating. I strongly urge renewal of Kenmore Air's lease at Boeing Field; those of us who fly small planes in Puget Sound really need Kenmore Air to be there.

Amy Steed

It is good that there is a locally owned FBO that is so helpful to Angel Flight and local pilots.

I am an Angel Flight member and have been associated Kenmore Aero Services in that capacity, They have been very helpful in accommodation for Angel Flight pilots and the passengers that use this facility. The easy access for pilots and passengers coming to and leaving this facility make it most convenient. It is good that there is a locally owned FBO that is so helpful to Angel Flight and local pilots. It is a pleasure to use this facility. Respectfully, Norman D. Rittenhouse Angel Flight 8245

In an airport full of big iron, it's nice to have someone around who can handle my fragile old wings.

I have been into Kenmore Aero Services a few times now and the experience has been nothing less than excellent. In an airport full of big iron, it's nice to have someone around who can handle my fragile old wings. They have been amazingly helpful and courteous. They are now my number 1 choice when flying into BFI

Kenmore Aero Svcs is an icon for air services in the Puget Sound area.

Kenmore Aero Svcs is an icon for air services in the Puget Sound area. The services they provide not only rate high and are important to the GA community, but to the general public as well. Their name as well as the services they provide include favorable perceptions as well, regarding the aviation community as a whole. Having flown in and out of airports used by Kenmore I notice and pay attention to their pilot's courteous, professional, and safe handling of their aircraft. This pertains to their operations at Boeing Field as well and the necessary services they provide.

Terry Bryant

There are no other reasonable alternatives for Seattle. Please pursue a lease that allows Kenmore to build a quality business at our favorite airport in Seattle.

I have been flying into BFI since 1969 when I learned to fly there at 16 years age and currently use BFI about twice a month for business in Seattle. I use Signature and Clay Lacy only as a last resort because they really cater to the big fuel guzzlers and long term BFI supporters like me don't make them much money. Having Kenmore at the south end is perfect. It's disappointing when I look at some of what has changed. The little operators are almost all gone and they taught thousands of young pilots to fly and made available friendly and economical GA services. That is a valuable part of what Boeing Field was and should continue to be. There are no other reasonable alternatives for Seattle. Please pursue a lease that allows Kenmore to build a quality business at our favorite airport in Seattle. Thank you, Brad Pattison, MD

We as a community desperately need this type of organization to serve the needs of General Aviation.

Kenmore Aero Services is a breath of fresh air here at BFI. We as a community desperately need this type of organization to serve the needs of General Aviation. They provide a much needed service through their focus on the small guy as well as the corporate crowd. Their friendly staff, great fuel prices and ramp availability has been a very welcome and needed addition at BFI. This is a golden opportunity to enhance BFI now and into the future.

I used to fly into Boeing Field more often until The Aviator's Store went out of business in 2014.

Although I have never yet met the folks at Kenmore Aero, I much appreciate flying into city airports with friendly FBOs and reasonable GA fuel costs. My plane is owned by the Cascade Flyers Club of Paine Field, Everett, and may well have flown in to Boeing Field and Kenmore Aero without me. I used to fly into Boeing Field more often until The Aviator's Store went out of business in 2014. I do not like seeing another general aviation supporter come on hard times. We need Kenmore Aero!

Great service from the Line Guys. Easy in and out. Thanks! I'll be back.

Kenmore has a long and noble history with air transportation in the Puget Sound area, one which Boeing Field should be proud to support into the future.

The presence of Kenmore on the field provides a needed alternative for private transportation aircraft, relieves pressure on the FBOs targeting larger customers, boosts the economy of the airport and the community, relieves congestion and confusion on the ground by occupying the south end of the field, and strengthens the perception of the airport in the community. Kenmore has a long and noble history with air transportation in the Puget Sound area, one which Boeing Field should be proud to support into the future.

Kenmore Aero Services provides critical services for GA in the Puget Sound area.

Kenmore Aero Services provides critical services for GA in the Puget Sound area. It is very important to the health of GA in the area to be able to use BFI efficiently and economically.

It has become a real challenge for pilots of light aircraft to patronize any businesses in the area of KBFI…

Whereas it used to be a Mecca of GA aviation, the past decade has seen support for pilots of light general aviation aircraft--i.e., non-business jet--at Boeing Field almost completely vanish. It has become a real challenge for pilots of light aircraft to patronize any businesses in the area of KBFI, whether they be aviation oriented or simply eateries. In my opinion, having Kenmore Aero open up shop on the field is a tremendous benefit for those of us who fly light aircraft. There are no other airports that can allow fairly convenient access to downtown Seattle for us. I strongly urge that Kenmore Aero's lease be renewed so they may continue to encourage the return of GA to Boeing Field.

Robert Mosley

I would much rather spend my time and business with this type of locally-owned high quality service business…

Using Kenmore Aero Services aviation-related services at Boeing field has been a wonderful experience for me and my airplane. I am consistently greeted with a smile and a warm family atmosphere when I do business there. I would much rather spend my time and business with this type of locally-owned high quality service business than the larger FBO operations that don't know my airplane or my name. Thank you Kenmore Aero Services for your wonderful service, keep up the great work! Charley Church C185 owner

I don't think we would visit often if we didn't have a great facility in kenmores fbo at Boeing Field.

Deer Kenmore, We've been so happy you took over the FBO. It's made our experience coming down to Seattle so much less worry some, as I know we will be looked after. The staff has been great and access to the city hasn't been easier. I don't think we would visit often if we didn't have a great facility in kenmores fbo at Boeing Field. Please let this fantastic facility continue to allow access to all in general aviation. Thank you!

While there are still other FBOs at BFI, none of them are as oriented towards providing services or as welcoming to the typical pilot puttering around the sky in a piston single as Kenmore.

My first flight in a General Aviation aircraft was a Cessna 172 out of an FBO at Boeing Field, six years ago. Today I have my certificate and my own plane. Boeing Field is an important part of GA in the Seattle area. Its location, situated under Seattle's Class B, but with good, direct routes from all directions and easy access to downtown, makes it an important hub for people flying in to Seattle. The Museum of Flight is a great destination for aviation enthusiasts interested in GA. While there are still other FBOs at BFI, none of them are as oriented towards providing services or as welcoming to the typical pilot puttering around the sky in a piston single as Kenmore. They're one of only a couple places that make GA still feel welcome at BFI.

...nice to have Kenmore taking care of us when students fly in on cross country flights.

Outstanding FBO! Excellent customer service! Truly there for General Aviation in all aspects! I own a flight school and Skagit Airport and it's so nice to have Kenmore taking care of us when students fly in on cross country flights. Also being the new drop off point for Angel Flight missions makes things run so smooth as well. I have done a number of those flights and they are truly enjoyable but having Kenmore there to take care of your needs like fueling and services makes it so much better! Thanks Kenmore!

Ken Davies

I will be visiting Kenmore Aero Services rather frequently in the coming months.

Volunteer pilots with Angel Flight West fly blood for Bloodworks Northwest from blood drives throughout the Pacific Northwest. Now that Bloodworks Northwest drivers are meeting at Kenmore Aero Services the AFW pilots flying this blood to BFI, I will be visiting Kenmore Aero Services rather frequently in the coming months. And I certainly will be encouraging any pilots using their own equipment on these missions to purchase their fuel at Kenmore Aero Services, receiving the fuel discount provided by Kenmore Aero Services for their service to the community.

Christian Holtz

Excellent service here!

Excellent service here! You don't have to be a megabuck jet driver to be treated well at Kenmore Aero Services.

Our pilots have appreciated Kenmore's dedicated and efficient services for years…

As President of the WA Pilot Association North Sound Chapter (Bellingham, WA) and President of the Chuckanut Flying Club, I represent over one hundred General Aviation pilots support Kenmore Aero Services at Boeing Field. Our pilots have appreciated Kenmore's dedicated and efficient services for years and are committed to utilizing their services in the future.

When it comes to providing excellent customer service and support for GA aircraft, no one comes close to Kenmore Aero Services.

I have been flight instructing out of Boeing field for many years, and have experience with the different FBOs at the field. When it comes to providing excellent customer service and support for GA aircraft, no one comes close to Kenmore Aero Services. They are always courteous and professional, and know me and my students by name. Their fuel is affordable, helping me and my students fly more, which in turn encourages more business for KBFI overall. Kenmore Aero Services is an important part of the airport's life- cycle. For example, by providing options for local students to earn their certificates here, they ensure corporate owners at the field have a source of local talent they can hire from. Plus, they are a locally owned and managed business. I support Kenmore Aero Services and hope they can continue to provide their excellent service for years to come!

Denise Stecconi

Kenmore is our home away from home, when in the Seattle area.

Kenmore is our home away from home, when in the Seattle area. We are located in Spokane at GEG. We like the good service and warm greeting we get at Kenmore. We encourage all of our GA friends to stop by and see them when in the area. We sure hope they will be able to continue their excellent services!

Terry Newcomb

I feel they are a valuable asset for the GA community operating out of KBFI.

I have flown in numerous times in my own aircraft as well as with others and always you staff to be friendly and extremely helpful with parking and refueling. The ladies in the front office are very professional and assisted us in locating several other local aviation business outlets that we were trying to find on the field. I feel they are a valuable asset for the GA community operating out of KBFI. Please let me know if I can do any thing else to help you.

John Johnson

Now at 73 i am giving rides to instill maybe some interest in GA Aviation.

Since high school 1960's. I have washed aircraft and been familiar with the Kenmore family. Mainly at the Air Harbor on Lake Washington. My brother Buck Wheat used to fly and repair beavers at the Air Harbor. Now at 73 i am giving rides to instill maybe some interest in GA Aviation. I am also active in Grant County Search and Rescue. I owe a lot of the dream of aviation to my early experiences at Kenmore Air Harbor. Cheers

As a student of local flying history, I write in support Kenmore Aero Services at Boeing Field.

As a student of local flying history, I write in support Kenmore Aero Services at Boeing Field. Boeing Field has served General Aviation for nearly 90 years, including those crucial few pre-war years of civilian pilot training 1938-42. We cannot predict the next national emergency. But we know the flow of General Aviation pilots and instructors doesn't run from a faucet turned off and on according to commercial real estate brokerage commission opportunities or national emergency. Boeing Field has been -- and should be encouraged as -- a General Aviation-friendly airport. Kenmore Aero Services Boeing Field lease renewal will help keep the General Aviation local pipeline of pilots and instructors open through this temporary industry downturn.

Jules James

We now have an FBO that actually likes servicing the needs of GA aircraft.

Kenmore's presence has completely changed there complexion of GA at BFI. We now have an FBO that actually likes servicing the needs of GA aircraft. Most importantly, they're selling 100LL at a competitive price. Please stay at BFI. THANK YOU, KENMORE.

Mitchell Hymowitz

Kenmore is a locally owned business whose goal is to provide exceptional service to their patron…

To whom it concerns, This facility, and its predecessor, give piston drivers like myself a welcoming place to base out of whenever I have the occasion to land at KBFI for a visit, whether business or pleasure, in downtown Seattle. The other options are distinctly more oriented toward our turbine powered General Aviation counterparts, and that is fine. Kenmore is a locally owned business whose goal is to provide exceptional service to their patron, irrespective of whether it is a Super Cub or a Gulfstream V. As the owner of a local business in Washington, Spokane Endodontics, I am proud to write in support of another Washington-based business. Independent businesses such as Kenmore take a unique level of pride in the service they provide. At KBFI, Kenmore Aero Services is my FBO of choice for my downtown Seattle visits. I ask you to renew Kenmore's lease. Respectfully, Blake McKinley, Jr.

Blake McKinley, Jr.

Kenmore has always been a supporter of GA at boing field and I ask you to do the same.

To whom it may concern Kenmore Aero services is a well run FBO operation at BFI. I travel all over a he United States and Canada. And am always happy when I arrive at Kenmore. There service and dedication to all customers no mater how big or small is very appreciated. It's important for our community to support this independent local operation instead of catering to corporate pressure. Kenmore has always been a supporter of GA at boing field and I ask you to do the same. I ask you to support Kenmore Areo Services continued operation at BFI. Renew there lease so they can continue to invest in he Seattle community.

Michael J. Port

The GA community throughout the Pacific Northwest is strong, supportive and communicative

As a GA-friendly FBO, Kenmore Aero Services serves a critical role in bringing much-needed tourism revenue to King County from other parts of Washington state and beyond. With Boeing Field so conveniently located to sports facilities, attractions, hotels and restaurants in the area, we need to have this facility available to make visiting King County easy and affordable. The GA community throughout the Pacific Northwest is strong, supportive and communicative - we much appreciate the services Kenmore offers at KBFI and the fact that it is a long-standing locally owned business that helps promote both general aviation and King County.

Terri Danz

GA needs all the support it can get.

I owned FBO at Mulino, OR prior to and after 911. For any one to survive it is challenge. GA needs all the support it can get. Hangin there

Please keep Boeing Field open and accessible to aircraft of all sizes, and in particular single engine and light twins…

When general aviation gets pushed away from important hubs like Boeing Field, it not only hurts pilots and their planes in close proximity to Boeing, but trickles down to other nearby airports. Their capacities are pushed, creating more traffic and hazards then entirely necessary. Not to mention the inconvenience of having to travel by car for often the same amount of time that your intended flight is for any given day. Please keep Boeing Field open and accessible to aircraft of all sizes, and in particular single engine and light twins as the entire nation is watching airports going from either GA non-friendly, to not being there at all.

Michael Prime

What kind of an airport would BFI be if it wasn't supporting all that aviation is? We frequently stop at Kenmore, because it's the only FBO at BFI that welcomes us.

I consider it imperative that airports support GA. The fact that I participate in aviation, and am supported by Kenmore is what makes me keep coming back to BFI. It's an amazing airport, sharing its runway with the great boeings, but also with the classics at the museum of flight. What kind of an airport would BFI be if it wasn't supporting all that aviation is? We frequently stop at Kenmore, because it's the only FBO at BFI that welcomes us. It's our link to the museum of flight. It's a link to SeaTac, and it's a reasonable sized airport for everything else we do at an airport. Without Kenmore, where will o buy fuel? Where will my passengers embark and deplane?

Shannon Monroe

I recently flew in there with...State Representatives... He talked about how accommodating Kenmore was... and how friendly the staff was to him.

I love the Kenmore Aero facility at Boeing Field. They are always so friendly and helpful. I recently flew in there with one of our State Representatives, and picked up a second State Representative to fly them both to a function. He talked about how accommodating Kenmore was in allowing him to leave his car there while we were gone, and how friendly the staff was to him. I also appreciate their lower fuel prices compared to their competitors on the field. If Kenmore is not given a renewed lease, I will not return back to BFI for any services. Please renew their lease so we have a good GA FBO on the field that takes such good care of us. Sincerely, Dale Harlan

You guys make flying more affordable, and more fun.

I'm a part owner in an airplane based at Boeing Field. I absolutely love having access to Kenmore Aero Services. Rain or shine, your line service guys are always ready to fuel the aircraft; a call on your frequency 131.75 is all that's necessary to have them standing by on the ramp even before I get there. It's so convenient that I rarely have the need to go into the terminal building (my card number, etc. are all on file and can be called in over the radio). THANK YOU for being committed to GA, especially piston GA, at BFI. You guys make flying more affordable, and more fun. At current prices, I'm saving at least $26/flight hour in fuel costs by fueling with you guys rather than with a couple of other operators on the field. Thanks again!

Izzy Gryko

That was a pleasant surprise and a first for me on my many trips into Seattle.

I am based at Richland (RLD). I use BFI when I have business in Seattle. I was pleased to hear about Kenmore Air Services and I used your facility on my last trip into Seattle. I was able to get fuel at a reasonable price, the service was provided in a friendly and professional manner and I was offered a courtesy car without asking for it. That was a pleasant surprise and a first for me on my many trips into Seattle. I do wish you the best and I look forward to continuing a relationship in the future.

Since Kenmore has been there it has been a pleasure to use the field and do business.

Prior to Kenmore being at BFI I made two trips to BFI in 10 years and each time vowed not to come back because I was treated as an annoyance and the price of services was outrageous. So we moved our training and meeting locations to Puyallup and used Thun Field. Since Kenmore has been there it has been a pleasure to use the field and do business. They have made it small business friendly again.

We need to continue to have the GA resources available at Boeing Field.

Hello, GA at Boeing Field is so critical for the support of the future of aviation in the Puget Sound area. We need to continue to have the GA resources available at Boeing Field. Instruction, charter and rentals are important to providing continuing resources to the GA community. Thank You

I believe very strongly in GA at KBFI, and I believe KAS provides the very best service on the field.

Although I currently fly floatplanes, I believe very strongly in GA at KBFI, and I believe KAS provides the very best service on the field. They are a local company that is part of the history and lore of aviation in the Pacific NW, and they provide an invaluable service to pilots at Boeing Field.

General aviation is an important to our family. We live in north Puget Sound and use our flights as a learning tool for our five year old daughter. We are members of the Museum of Flight but due to the horrific traffic, we rarely go as there are few tie downs and not worth the risk. We would spend more time in King County if Boeing Field were a bit more GA friendly.

I can honestly say that I was impressed with Kenmore Aero the moment I walked in the door.

I learned to fly at KBFI. Initially it was a flight with a friend who has a plane parked at Northeast parking. Then a discovery flight using an airplane from Alternate Air and finally, my private pilot lessons and license using airplanes from Alternate Air and a local CFI. I have rented an flown out of BFI since 2009 and think it is a great general aviation airport that offers much for student pilots and GA in general. Lately I have started to do a check out and flight review with a Piper Warrior that is based at Kenmore Aero Services on the south end of the field. I can honestly say that I was impressed with Kenmore Aero the moment I walked in the door. I was greeted with a friendly smile and a welcome and it hasn't changed since. The services they offer for us as GA is outstanding. Fueling, marshaling, a place to check WX and NOTAMS.... the list goes on. It is imperative that Kenmore Aero Services be allowed to renew their lease at BFI to help ensure that aviation, more specifically GA, is not forgotten and allowed to diminish at this great airport. Many student pilots I have talked to discuss the fact that they can learn to fly at a towered airport with friendly controllers and this helps them to fly into and out of any airspace with confidence. We need to keep GA at KBFI and in order to do so, we need organizations like Kenmore Aero Services that help GA pilots and GA in general, to be a viable option in our community.

Gerry O'Brien

It is important to us that work and travel using General Aviation to have a facility like Kenmore to provide those important and needed services.

As the Vice President for the Eastside Chapters of the Washington Pilots Association, I highly support the efforts of Kenmore Aero Services on Boeing Field. Many of our Pilots from the east side of Washington State use Boeing Field when traveling to Seattle. To have a place to park and enjoy the services provided by such a Landmark Company is vital to General Aviation in both the business/commercial and private sectors. It is important to us that work and travel using General Aviation to have a facility like Kenmore to provide those important and needed services. We support the efforts to have Kenmore Aero Services on Boeing Field and any needs they have to enhance their ability to provide that service.

Tom Morris

Without operations like Kenmore Aero Services, the humanity evaporates from aviation.

Keep Boeing Field open to GA traffic; let's give the honest, grassroots local operation an opportunity to continue to thrive, to prosper, and most importantly, to nurture the growth and longevity of General Aviation in the Pacific Northwest. Without operations like Kenmore Aero Services, the humanity evaporates from aviation. When an outfit like this has prospered for generations in an industry as unpredictable as GA, that really says something about their strength and integrity. Keep Seattle friendly to GA, keep this welcoming gateway to the wonders of Boeing Field open, and let Kenmore Aero Services continue to remain a steadfast cornerstone of General Aviation.

C. Kim Miles

...beyond that it's a one-of-a-kind company that serves the GA community and the general public.

Kenmore is to Seattle as the Space Needle is to Seattle. It's an institution. And beyond that it's a one-of-a-kind company that serves the GA community and the general public. If it's not championed at BFI then we not only lose an icon but prevent my flying friends and enthusiasts from an endearing services company to a corporate who-gives-a-crap.

Joe Anderson

We want Kenmore to stay and flourish!

Hello, We have been operating out of KBFI for two years. We recently moved to KAS in June 2016. Their level of customer service is superb. Their fuel pricing is very attractive at an airport where corporate chains have high fuel prices and threaten the survival of hometown businesses. We want Kenmore to stay and flourish!

Nichole Wolfe

I have participated in many activities during my life but none so enriching for me and my family as being involved in General Aviation!

I have participated in many activities during my life but none so enriching for me and my family as being involved in General Aviation! It concerns me to hear that shrinking GA facilities at BFI is a consideration at this time. As a citizen of King County, I see Kenmore as a strong part of our community that fosters improvements in aviation and provides valuable services for pilots, aircraft owners and citizens alike. Thanks to their strong local roots, Kenmore keeps local money local and helps bring aviation traffic and dollars into our region. This should absolutely be supported, as Kenmore helps to support us. Please continue to promote General Aviation and all of its advantages for our citizens and community as a whole. Renewing Kenmore's lease and working toward plans for BFI to maximize its GA potential while continuing to provide other valuable aviation services is the right way to do this. Pushing out successful, principled local businesses would be counter-productive. Even in this age of drones, it all starts with experience in GA. Children are inspired, pilots are trained, safety is improved, transportation is provided. Let's keep up that good work! Thank you, Carl Rosevear

Carl Rosevear

You can really tell they're passionate about all levels of general aviation.

Kenmore Aero Services has been an awesome FBO for us! Our plane is based there, and there was a very noticeable step up in the level of service when they took over. You can really tell they're passionate about all levels of general aviation. Their connection to Kenmore Air is a big bonus for me. I've been a passenger on Kenmore Air many times, and the experience has always been great. I love that they're bringing that same level of service to Kenmore Aero Services. It's a perfect fit to have a well-respected local company as the FBO at Boeing Field.

Peter Sommer

It's getting harder and harder to find reasonable fuel and good service for my little Cherokee in a big city, and that's why I appreciate everything about Kenmore Aero.

Ken more FBO is great! Their 100LL was a bargain, their staff very friendly and accommodating, even offering up crew-cars, which makes quick trips to the city possible for and island dweller like me. It's getting harder and harder to find reasonable fuel and good service for my little Cherokee in a big city, and that's why I appreciate everything about Kenmore Aero. It would be a big loss to the GA community to loose this fine business at KBFI.

Christopher Teren

Having a place that's convenient to the downtown hospitals and is friendly to light aircraft is critical for these people to get to and from their doctor appointments.

I primarily use Kenmore Air to drop off and pick up Angel Flight patients. Having a place that's convenient to the downtown hospitals and is friendly to light aircraft is critical for these people to get to and from their doctor appointments. Additionally, I've used Kenmore Air for temporary parking for meetings and obtaining fuel, both of which are much higher elsewhere on the field, to the point that I actively avoid both Clay Lacy and Landmark Aviation. There is no viable alternative for light aircraft operations at Boeing Field.

Ed Bryce

...it is critical to the general aviation community that service providers such as Kenmore continue to provide services for GA owners if possible.

Thank you for being a part of KBFI and for providing services as an FBO. As the airport has changed, especially ove the last 18 months, it is critical to the general aviation community that service providers such as Kenmore continue to provide services for GA owners if possible. With the price increases and clearly hostile actions that have come from King County towards the GA community at KBFI, it would be extremely detrimental to loose yet another business that serves the GA industry at KBFI. KBFI and the historical roots it has as with the GA as our community airport are being crushed by thoughtless government policy makers. If the price hikes for lease rates drive Kenmore out of KBFI, it will only further hasten the likelyhood of KBFI becoming an airport that has lost its way and lost it's service to the community.
