Crownair joins the Avfuel branded network
Avfuel looks forward to supporting Crownair at Montgomery-Gibbs. The California FBO will provide competitively priced fuel and AVTRIP rewards, plus benefits such as supply logistics and on time delivery.
The partnership unites the leading independent supplier of aviation fuel and services with an icon of California's aviation industry.

Avfuel Corporation is pleased to welcome Crownair Aviation to its branded FBO network.

“Crownair has become part of the legacy of Montgomery-Gibbs Executive airport, which has provided San Diego with FBO services for more than 70 years and brought it to new heights,” says vice president of sales Mark Haynes. “Avfuel is proud to be part of that legacy and looks forward to supporting Crownair with fuel and logistics to serve its clients and its position as the CAA provider at the airport.”

“At Crownair we strive to offer the highest level of service to our customers, and we have that in common with Avfuel,” adds Crownair president Ray Richmond. “We look forward to providing competitively priced fuel and AVTRIP rewards, along with the benefits customers don't think about but certainly want, like supply logistics and on time delivery.”

Streamlined purchasing with the Avfuel Pro Card is another of Crownair's branded-location benefits, allowing purchases of all items, with or without a fuel purchase, to be made in one transaction.

Crownair's FBO experience begins the moment visitors enter the new 16,000 sq ft facility, completed in 2021. A light-filled, 35 ft high atrium lobby welcomes guests, while professionally trained staff offer concierge customer service. Amenities include a passenger lounge, flight planning and business centre, pilot lounge with snooze rooms and shower facilities, and meeting rooms including a 15 seat conference room with full A/V capabilities and an adjacent deck overlooking the ramp.

Crownair is IS-BAH Stage III registered. Just 15 minutes north of downtown San Diego, it offers a relaxed experience, transient hangar space and easy access to attractions including Torrey Pines Golf Course, the Del Mar Racetrack, Sea World and San Diego Bay.
