About US

Bakersfield Jet Center by Loyd's Aviation is the only full-service Fixed Base Operation (FBO) at Meadows Field in Bakersfield, California. We were founded in 1958 and have built a reputation for the best service in the region.

Loyd’s Aviation was established in 1958 by Byron E. Loyd in Bakersfield, CA. An entrepreneur at heart, Byron wasn’t afraid to take risks and worked to grow the fledgling company until 1993 when he retired, and his son Steve took over.

Loyd’s Aviation started out with one hangar space and today can accommodate over 90 aircraft which allowed the opportunity to greatly expand line operations, maintenance, parts, aircraft charter and management, hangar and storage rental, and aircraft sales.

Now in its 6th decade of operation, Bakersfield Jet Center (BJC) by Loyd’s Aviation is the premier full-service FBO in the region and encompasses nearly 30 acres at the KBFL airport dedicated to the safe and efficient operation, storage, fueling and handling of military, cargo, commercial and general aviation aircraft.

Today, Bakersfield Jet Center strives to provide the highest level of customer satisfaction in the aviation industry, and our dedication to success is based on three foundational tenets: Safety, Integrity and Customer Service.  It's what makes us unique, and we hope to see you soon!
