I have been to both you listed but have been going to KFFZ now as it is easy to get to my dads house in NE Scottsdale and also easy to get in/out. Falcon Exec does have maintenance and have fixed me up before when I have a problem.
I don’t go to SDL anymore as it cost way more than I want to pay for everything. And, Deer Valley is very busy (with training) but does have more options on the ground.
I have been to both and would highly recommend Cutter at DVT. I fly there often and find it a pleasure dealing with staff not to mention cost friendly.
Wow on Cutter at DVT! I don’t recall where I have been treated so well (except when going to Dick Welch’s flight line) in many years. I even went in and rounded up the boss to say thank you, I told the line guy and the young lady at the counter too.
I always tell folks I work with; everything counts. The line guy who greeted me opening the door on my plane set the tone for Cutter.
As for DVT, it is a busy place with a lot of traffic close by and in the pattern. It was almost overwhelming with all of the traffic showing up on my displays! But, it is a nice airport that is very easy to pick out visually. The controllers worked me in and out nicely too.
