Flightline First strives to be the Best FBO and focuses on customer service.  Our laid back atmosphere is a result of the owner, James Robinson, Jr., who in 1969 founded the second location of TGI Friday’s in his hometown of Memphis.  Jimmy also helped local establishments sell liquor by the drink instead of patrons bringing their own alcohol from home to fix once they got to the bar.  Shortly after he decided to move to New Orleans, opening Flighline First in the summer of 2007.

Flightline First has been thriving for over 10 years.  The Charter division has also expanded during this time.  Our FBO has been recognized as one of the best FBO’s in the Gulf Coast for our personable experiences with every customer that flies into New Orleans.

The family owned FBO will continue to serve our customers with a smile and prove to our competitors that small FBO’s can survive.


What our clients say

Straight forward downwind entry to 36L, well mannered helpful controllers in and out. Nice facilities and great service from Flightline FBO. Easy Uber to town and back. All this made for a great trip.

Flightline First is the best FBO I have used on over 50 years of flying.

We flew into KNEW to run into town for a quick lunch. We decided on Flightline First. The linemen were great and quickly tended to us and our little Cessna. The FBO was very nice, clean and smelled like cookies. The last at the front desk was very friendly and offered to help with transportation. When we came back from lunch, the plane was topped off and we took a cookie for the road. This will be our FBO in NOLA from now on. Thank you!

First time into Lakefront yesterday for the Cowboys game. Everyone at the FBO Flightline First could not have been more friendly. Nice and clean restrooms, great facility. This one was recommened to me by others and they were right. Heard the restaurant next door is fabulous but unfortunately had just closed at 3 pm on Sunday when I arrived. Have to come back now for sure. If you're looking for easy access into the downtown area and the Big Easy. Uber to downtown was very reasonable and nice and helpful drivers. Gas prices reasonable. Nothing critical to say. Highly recommend stopping here if coming into NO.

Very helpful line staff. It always amazes me how some FBOs manage to welcome aircraft and let you park conveniently. While others send my bonanza out to the back 40 when there's no traffic. One of our pax started taking selfies in the bathroom. Said it was the nicest one she's seen! Restaurant next door was great on the way out too.
