FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 12, 2016) – Base Operations at Page Field has been ranked in the top 20 percent of fixed-base operators in a prestigious international survey conducted by Aviation International News (AIN). This is the fourth consecutive year that Base Operations at Page Field has been named as a top fixed-base operator by AIN. In 2016, Base Operations ranked first in the Fort Myers/Naples area and scored in the top 25 for all FBOs.

The FBO Survey is conducted annually and asks pilots, flight attendants and dispatchers to provide feedback on the level of customer care at individual business and general aviation service providers throughout the Americas. In 2016, AIN modified their methodology for calculating survey results by implementing four-year averages and changing the evaluation score from a 1-10 to a 1-5 scale. Previously, scores were calculated only from rankings submitted during the official survey open period, but now AIN allows for year-round voting on their website. The survey asked qualified subscribers to evaluate FBOs they visited the previous year in five categories: line service, passenger amenities, pilot amenities, facilities and customer service representatives. Aviation International News (AIN) is a widely respected monthly trade publication covering news, features, special reports, aircraft evaluations and surveys on business, commercial and regional aviation worldwide, and a twice-weekly electronic newsletter. AIN has been conducting surveys and providing industry reports on service since 1981. The 2016 FBO Survey includes fixed-base operations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South and Central America and the Caribbean. The Lee County Port Authority operates Southwest Florida International Airport and Page Field in Fort Myers. Page Field provides services to corporate, commercial and private aviators through their business arm, Base Operations at Page Field. For more information, please visit
