Learning to fly naturally involves your own flight school at your home airport. The plane starts and ends at the same spot each time.
Maybe you have the number to call for fuel saved in your phone. My flight school has the plane fueled and ready on the ramp when I schedule the airplane. Most training flights that take you to a new airport involve little more than a touch and go before heading back home, so what happens when you get your license and start flying to new places? Where is the fixed base operator (FBO)? Where do I park? What are ramp fees? How do I get gas? How do I get around town now that I'm here? Whether you are a new, licensed pilot or prepping for your first venture to a new airport, consider this your guide to the FBO.
