Optimizing Your FBO, Part 1: Pay Your Front Line Employees More

Often, when FBOs, and other businesses for that matter, are faced with an economic downturn, one of the first places they look to make cuts is their payroll. That might work if you are operating a clothing or grocery store, but take a moment and think about the time that has been invested in training your employees, especially the ones who are out there on what I call The Front Line, marshalling, fueling, and, most importantly, meeting and greeting customers.

Carpets for FBOs

Photo by: Julie Jantzer-WardA couple weeks ago, we noticed a CNN.com post about Carpets for Airports, a Web site that waxes critical on the artistic and design merits of carpets in airport terminals around the world.

Like many of the best Web sites and Internet memes, it is a bemusing way to waste some time.

So knowing that many of the pilots who use AC-U-KWIK have down time between flights, we invite all to send us photos of carpets at FBOs. Like the contributors who place the airport carpet on a pedestal, anyone submitting photos of FBO carpets should include the airport and FBO name and an analysis of the carpet design.

To show that nothing is sacred, we at AC-U-KWIK will add the first carpet photos to the gallery ...
