Porter FBO, not bad, not great, just adequate. One would expect more when the newly hiked up ramp fee is $35 just for the day, even if you buy $300 worth of fuel at around $8 per gallon. Aircraft is parked hundreds of feet from FBO building, linemen does not even stick around after chucking the plane to inquire if we have any luggage to carry. We did, and we did carry ourselves. They have a great location and they know it, right in downtown Toronto basically, and they know it. Imagine if there was an airport in Central Park, there would be a premium for that, there is at Porter FBO I guess.
The convenience of landing downtown is always a plus. Probably the most scenic airports being so close to a city centre.
