Our company continues the greatness of legendary pilot Elizabeth “Bessie” Coleman, a forerunner at the dawn of the aviation industry. “Queen Bess” was the first female pilot of African-American descent and the first African-American to hold an international pilot’s license. Her grit and determination to be the best has inspired generations of young aviators and continue to inspire our mission every day.

Absolutely first-class service and professionalism. The low fuel prices are for real and the care this staff delivers strives to please and impress. Getting to Chicago is also very convenient.

Michael C.

The best FBO I’ve encountered in my 45 years of flying. I was warmly greeted by a staff that couldn’t do enough for me. Their line personnel were extremely courteous and careful during the refueling and turnaround process.

Ralph T.

Aside from great fuel prices, the service was among the best I have ever experienced. 40 minutes to Chicago, great fuel prices and great service… I will definitely come back to B. Coleman.

Can’t say enough good about them. They are happy to see you if you buy 10 gallons of fuel or 250 gallons. Very good service, great prices. I look forward to my future visits.
