We truly have the BEST clients!!! Thank you so much for the positive feedback!!

"These people really know how to run an FBO. I called the day prior to our arrival to make hotel and rental car reservations. I spoke with Dawn, who was very friendly and extremely helpful. When we arrived, she and the three ground crew members were on the ramp, ready to greet our aircraft. I believe our primary passenger was also impressed with the level of attention we received. The ground crew, and Dawn, was eager to help with the unloading of bags and getting our passengers on their way. It was so well coordinated that it was obvious they had done it many times. Please give Dawn a raise. She's wonderful." -TW

Thank you again! More positive reviews!!

I arrived at KJYO on a Wednesday afternoon and was greeted by one of the line staff that had a great attitude and a big smile. He tied my plane down and blocked the wheels and locked it up for me. After escorting me to the FBO, I was again greeted by a wonderful staff that was both pleasant and efficient. I am a disabled veteran with a service dog. The women helped me care for the dog, fed her treats and gave her a huge bowl of cold water after a long, hot flight. Parking was free after I filled her up! It seemed like they were ahead of me the entire time offering assistance at each step of the way! Great team. Thanks for everything KJYO FBO! - 7/10/2020, AS

Aero Elite Flight Training

Some more important info from another flight school at KJYO.

Updated Message on COVID-19 from AEFlight:

Good afternoon everyone!

During the last few weeks Aero Elite Flight Training, along with all other businesses, have been monitoring and keeping up with what's going on with COVID-19. We implemented much stricter cleaning procedures, handing out wipes to each person that rented an airplane. We've been cleaning the office constantly. Basically doing everything that the CDC and WHO recommended, including only allowing 10 people in the office at any one time.

We've also been monitoring the changes being made at both the State and Federal level when it comes to business shut downs and essential vs. non-essential businesses. Technically, Flight Schools are classified as essential businesses. There's a wide variety of reasons for that, but basically it's in case the government needs to use us and our planes for moving supplies and that sort of thing.

To that end, our primary focus and responsibility is to our employees and instructors. Out of an abundance of caution for them, we are hereby choosing to shut down the flight school to Dual Flight Instruction Operations effective at 1700 local Friday, March 27th. We will for sure be shut down through Friday, April 3rd. On that date, we will assess how things are going and decide whether to open back up for dual flight instruction or not. Ali will be reaching out to everyone tomorrow for the next few weeks, and we are looking at ways of blocking Dual Flight Training in FlightSchedulePro to make this easier.

In the meantime, we are going to allow our customers to rent our airplanes. We are still requiring you to continue to follow the same procedures we've implemented per CDC and WHO guidelines. If you feel sick, stay home. If you even think you *might* be sick, stay home. If you have traveled in the last few weeks (whether domestic or foreign) we want you to self quarantine from flying for 2 weeks. We've set up a box outside of our office door with the flight binders and wipes in there. We will be monitoring the box to ensure it stays stocked with wipes throughout this process. Ali, our office manager, will be reaching out to our students the day before flying to ensure they have the correct code to the box and know about the procedures. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

We have also contracted with a cleaning company (the same one that does monthly/quarterly detailing of all of our airplanes) to do weekly sanitizing cleanings on the inside. We will be scheduling them on FlightSchedulePro, so be on the lookout for those.

Thank you all for your help during these trying times. We are taking everything VERY seriously and want to get back to work flight instructing as soon as we can. We're looking at implementing some things with our instructors for ground training sessions via Facetime, Zoom, or Google Hangouts. We hope to have some announcements in the future about virtual training sessions that our students can join free of charge. Please continue to adhere to social distancing and cleanliness...We want all of our customers to be safe and healthy!

Thanks again everyone. We hope to be back flying with you guys as soon as it is safe to do so again.

Yours in Health,

Tim Fisher

Dear JYO Customers,

To minimize the risk of exposure to the JYO community, we have made the decision to implement a temporary reduction in staffing, during our normal hours of operation.

We are all in this together! Here are some actions that will help us support your continued flight operations:

1) Please call ahead. The sooner we know your travel plans, the better we can serve you! Call 703.889.8558 or email [email protected] with any advance requests to avoid any unnecessary delays.

2) Help wing-walk during aircraft movements. Safety is our main concern, and we want to maintain our standard of always having two wing-walkers during a pull.

3) Minimize time and activity in the Main Terminal Building. We are asking all of our guests to keep traffic at the main terminal to a minimum.

4) Minimize front desk interactions. Please minimize your time at the desk and touching the desk surfaces.

5) Please follow CDC best practices to protect yourself.

Thank you in advance for your support during this challenging time. Feel free to call us at 703.889.8558, or send us a note at [email protected] if you have any questions or feedback on our operations.

OpenAir Flight Training

Some very important info to pass along..

OpenAir has made the difficult, but necessary decision to temporarily suspend dual flight training for the consideration of the health and safety of our employees and our clients.

Aircraft will still be available for rental! Procedures for renting aircraft will be similar to our normal after-hours rental procedures- with some added precautions to keep renters and their families safe, including wiping aircraft down before and after every flight with a disinfecting wipe. When you schedule a flight, you can expect an email from Dawn, our Operations Manager, reminding you of these procedures, and any other information you may need.

In addition to this, OpenAir instructors are providing ground instruction by phone, or by video chat. We are in the process of exploring our options for even more advanced distance learning opportunities. Stay tuned for updates on that, and get in touch with an OpenAir flight instructor to schedule a virtual ground lesson!
