As one of the most respected general aviation publications, Business Air News conducts its annual FBO feedback surveys to rank FBOs in North America and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). This year two US-based Paragon Network FBOs made the top 10 list in North America while one overseas Paragon FBO was recognised among the top 10 best in the EMEA region.

In a three-way tie, Paragon FBO members Business Jet Center at Dallas Love Field in Texas and National Jets at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airport in Florida took second place.

Founded in 1993 on the principles of family spirit, a humble heart and trusted service, Business Jet Center offers FBO services, aircraft maintenance, charter and management, and aircraft acquisition and sales. Its NATA Safety 1st trained line crew and dedicated customer service team make sure each and every guest receives a vibrant experience.

With a family company history dating back to 1947, National Jets has a consistent track record of providing the utmost service whether it be for aircraft, passengers or crew. Its line team is NATA Safety 1st certified and Gulfstream Ground Handling certified while the National Jets team of customer service professionals is ready to assist with requests for car rentals, catering or conference rooms.

ExecuJet Berlin earned the seventh spot in the overall rankings for EMEA. Located at the Berlin-Brandenburg airport and linked by autobahn to the city centre, this FBO completed a renovation last month to enhance its security and privacy while at the same time increasing handling efficiencies.

Voting in the Business Air News survey is open to business aircraft owner/operator subscribers. Subscribers can vote for as many FBOs and/or handlers that they have visited in the past year and must rank the FBOs/handlers on a scale of one to nine in four criteria.

"Congratulations to these three FBOs that uphold strong safety standards, provide unparalleled customer service and showcase an unwavering commitment to excellence. It is very rewarding to see our FBO members acknowledged by Business Air News for being among the best operators in the world," says president Megan Barnes. "You get an unforgettable experience each time you visit a Paragon Network FBO, and I am elated to see that our FBOs' teamwork and efforts have not gone unnoticed."
