The FBO at FMY was great- do tie down flight controls well as it is always breezy.

Rental brought out next to plane, trunk open, AC blasting by the time we were half way secured.

Second the recommendation for Page field. Easy in and out, Base Ops is a really solid
FBO. Self serve is a long taxi across the field to south east ramp though.

Never been into Naples. Probably nice also. Lots of private heavy iron!

Let me know what else you are looking for, will advise.

Call Naples Aviation at KAPF and see what their overnight fees are. Their self serve fuel is very reasonable. Since it’s the end of March, it’s toward the end of snowbird season so they will not be under as much ramp pressure.

last check is KAPF is 20 bucks a night and KFMY is 10 and they will wave some for fuel purchase. KFMY is much more GA friendly than KAPF.

Might also check out Marco Island Executive Airport. Tie-down might be a little cheaper than Naples.

What models of RV's are coming down?
