Aviation is our lifestyle
Central Coast Jet Center is a family business and truly feels like one. The Kunkle family owns and operates the FBO, and a love of aviation runs in their blood. Jim Kunkle, President, created Central Coast Jet Center in 2003. His career spans 47 years in the aviation industry, and he is a multi-rated pilot on numerous aircraft. Chris Kunkle, VP Operations, is a California State University Chico graduate, third generation aviator, and Director of the award winning 2018-2019 Central Coast AirFest. While operations have grown over the years, the quality of service, attention to detail, and the love of aviation that characterized the Jet Center in its early years still define it today.
We bring our small town, small business attitude into aviation, and that is what separates us from the competition. While our proximity to Hawaii, wide selection ground support equipment, and runway length are all great features of our FBO, our friendliness and enthusiasm to go out of our way to ensure the success and happiness of our customers is what makes us special.
