Island City Flying Service, the FBO at Florida’s Key West International Airport (EYW) has joined the Avfuel network of FBOs, offering Avfuel products including AVTRIP rewards, Avfuel Contract Fuel and more.
The FBO — currently undergoing a complete rebuild scheduled for completion in early 2012 — has been under the ownership of Paul De Poo since 1984. De Poo has spent his entire aviation career with Island City Flying Service, beginning as a lineman and working as a charter pilot before eventually purchasing the business. Aided by his cousin, Vice President Peter Sellers, De Poo has built the operation into a thriving family business fueled by a passion for airplanes and aviation.
As Key West’s popularity as a vacation destination has increased, Island City Flying Service has adjusted accordingly. “Key West has really gotten on the map in recent years, resulting in increased business,” said Sellers. “We’ve added a tank to the fuel farm and procured more fuel trucks to accommodate the increased traffic.” Avfuel’s reliable product supply and equipment support was a key factor when shopping for a fuel partner, he said. “It was clear that Avfuel was the way to go for us,” Sellers said. “There’s great tech support, nice equipment, easy ordering procedures and no problems getting fuel.” In addition, “Avfuel provides great overall support for our FBO in terms of training, marketing, and programs such as AVTRIP.”
Island City Flying Service offers guests a number of services and amenities including maintenance, a flight planning room, lounge areas, showers, a conference room and more. The ramp is capable of accommodating most business jets, and quick turns are available upon request.
