About Us

The Rock Family has owned and operated Northgate Aviation Chico Jet Center for over 10 years and has been dedicated to providing excellent service to the airport community and all of those that visit KCIC. This dedication comes from a long standing legacy of service above self that is exemplified by Chris Rock's three tours in Vietnam. His multiple Bronze Stars are proudly displayed in the front office along with his father's Purple Heart and Croix de Guerre for service in WWII.

This dedication to service can also be seen in the care and attention taken in restoring the 1940s hangar that Northgate Aviation Chico Jet Center calls home. When entering the hangar, it is truly like stepping back in time with all the modern conveniences. There are two comfortable lounges, Wi-Fi, a beverage station, vending machines, and must-see themed, picture worthy bathrooms.

If KCIC is on your flight plan, we look forward to serving you and sharing with you the many wonderful aspects of the Chico community.

Our Latest Praise!

  • I had flown into Chico later in the evening with passengers who were running late. The guys working late were awesome and very helpful! When we were getting ready to depart the passengers showed up early and a backpack got left behind. The manager Alicia Rock (Yes she does ROCK!) got it sent out ASAP for us! Awesome job all around! Thanks so much for the awesome service! Looking forward to the next trip here!

  • They treat you like you are part of the family!

  • Flew my bosses into KCIC from KAPC last month. Alicia and her entire staff at Northgate were AWESOME! A lot of FBO's could learn a thing or two about customer service from Northgate Aviation. By far, the best services I've seen. Many thanks Alicia for your hospitality! I look forward to the next flight into KCIC!

    GREAT FBO! Flew in for a quick fuel stop Oct. 2015. The ladies were delightful and helped us find an amazing cafe just down the road called the Foodie Cafe. They're currently doing some renovations, however the facilities were great nonetheless. Just a good, down home FBO.

  • Flew into Chico for business on a Friday morning parked right in front of Northgate and proceeded into office. I requested a crew car and the lady had me fill out a sign in book while she retrieved the car. Within minutes I was on my way to the business meeting. I returned later and thanked the lady at Northgate and departed. Seamless and easy experience, a great FBO I highly recommend and I will be sure to buy fuel next time from this excellent facility. Thanks Northgate.

  • Made a call to Northgate, they answered right away, came down to the north hangers and fueled up our Stinson L-5. Great and friendly service. I would recommend anytime.

    While on a charter flight standing by at Northgate Aviation, we were given excellent service, instructions, crew car and hospitality that only comes from hard working, decent folks that I find only in areas where people work hard for a living and appreciate others. While there, I forgot one of my cell phones in one of their crew cars and I received it back via Priority mail without even mentioning the cost. I always find the time spent there rewarding and at home.
