NEW Aviation Service Provider in Bend Oregon

NEW Aviation Service Provider in Bend Oregon

Dear Aviation Community,

I would like to introduce you to the newest (old) Aviation Service Provider in Bend, Gibson Air Service.  Steve Gibson is the son of the late Pat and Marge Gibson.  In 1950 Pat and his wife started the very first FBO in Bend and were successful for many years.  Check out this Bend Bulletin article about Gibson Air Service from years past.

Steve has brought back his parents legacy by reopening Gibson Air in the old red Quonset Hut 2 doors down from Professional Air at the Bend Municipal Airport (KBDN).  The same building was the hanger for the business, and Steve and his siblings grew up in a house that was located where the City owned FBO building now sits. Gibson Air Service offers an excellent professional maintenance staff headed by Mick Guinn.  Mick has over 30 years experience in aviation maintenance from the Army working on helicopters, to a Lancair/Columbia factory mechanic (not just factory trained), to experimentals and even the big iron.  He specializes in composite repair and has decades of experience working on all types of general aviation aircraft.  Our shop is fully insured and we also do prop balancing for a full service experience.  My company, NW Professional Aviation Services, provides the flight services, pre/post maintenance flights and flight instruction. My background includes experience as Lead Factory Flight Instructor at Columbia Aircraft, service in corporate turbo prop aircraft to large multi crew jets, years of flight instruction, and as the acting Chief Flight Instructor at The Flightshop Inc, now Professional Air.

Gibson Air Service will soon launch a complete pilot supply store with charts, flight instruction materials, headsets, and all necessary items that pilot’s need most.  We are establishing a pilot club membership and concierge level of service to aircraft owners/operators providing coordination of fueling services, aircraft detailing, and aircraft staging.  We have a comfortable pilot lounge where all are welcome to come and hanger fly till their hearts are content.  In addition, we are an authorized HERTZ car rental center offering full day, weekly, and even crew car rentals. 

Click on the links above, call Carrie our controller at 541 388-5040, or just stop by and come see what we’re about.  Give us the opportunity to earn your business and you will not be disappointed.
