“…In 2003 the AYA Convention was held at St. Simons Island (SSI) for the first time. It was so well received that we wanted to return. As AYA 2011 Convention Chairman, one of my operating principles was, “all surprises should be pleasant ones. I must say that looking back on the convention experience this year, the most pleasant surprise for me was the quality of the facilities, the tremendous support, and the ‘top drawer’ hospitality we received from Gruber Aviation. Compared to the previous conventions, I honestly believe that you have raised the standard for facilities and hospitality to a new level. Thank you again for hosting us. Perhaps SSI can become our first “three-peat” venue! Blue Skies!”

“I have been a customer of Gruber Aviation since their founding in 2002 and their service and personnel have been outstanding. I would recommend them to anyone flying into SSI.”

“We have been partners in both the Beechcraft King Air and the Beechcraft Baron for several years. We use them for short trips (Atlanta), longer flights (Maine) and to bring our daughter and her family to visit us in St. Simons. We have been extremely pleased with the aircraft, the experience and capabilities of the pilots and the service and friendliness shown by Renn and all of the staff. It is a special treat in our lives to use this service and avoid the hassles of commercial air travel.

“Having been a tenant at the Gruber Aviation Executive Hangar for over nine years has worked extremely well for us. Everything about the offices is a step above what you would expect in a commercial office space. The opportunity of being around the aircraft as they arrive and depart makes for an interesting and eventful working day.”
