Hey guys I am in charge of designing a pilot lounge for my FBO. I would like to find out from you, what are the must-have items, those WOW items and things you would not put in there. Currently, we have the Big Screen TV, Cable DVD player, Chairs and tables. Thanks Mark

Hmmm.. couch, wifi internet. Lots of electrical outlet space is a big plus, an easy place to charge your laptop or phone is nice.

1. Good printer with fast print speed and large feeder drawer
2. Quality computer with latest software (including Office 2007 and latest Java applets for JetPlan.com, etc)
3. Cable TV or Direct TV, NOT Dish Network (HORRIBLE interface)
4. Enough room between chairs to not feel like you're back in the airplane
5. Chairs close enough to electrical outlets to be useful for devices with shorter charge cables (Phones, etc)
6. Microwave that is NOT in the pilot lounge, nothing worse than smelling the other guy's food for hours when you don't have any
7. Good subscription of aviation periodicals available (not just the foo-foo mags for passengers or Executive Controller)
8. Ability for CSR to page the crew in the lounge to alert of passenger arrival

Huh?
Obviously, none of the people who have replied so far have spent more that ten minutes at a FBO crew lounge. There are only three things needed in a crew lounge and three things only.....A stocked bar, a killer sound system and a stripper poll. Hot FBO chicks, I assume, will do the dancing!

Good suggestions guys. If Marks company give a purse with no strings this will be one heck of a lounge.

I would also like to suggest a storage locker or two. This way a pilot can leave a brief case or something of the sort in the lounge when he takes the crew car out for lunch.

I second the Strippers.... Ones with really loose morals.
Seriously after spending too many hour in crew lounges. Comfortabe recliners, I actually prefer couches to sleep on but that would take up a lot of room. Good WIFI and a power outlet to plug in the computers. A tv for background noise while I sleep. And above all it is for crew only no bigwigs comming in while you are napping turning on the lights, turning off the A/C (in GUAT really blows) and talking constantly on thier cells with no thought of the crews.

... a good FLAT-SCREEN TV ...

Properly hooked up to a high-definition cable or satellite box. I've been to a few FBOs with nice 50"+ flat panel TVs, showing a grainy standard-def picture either stretched or with black bars on the sides. :crying:

Guess avbug made another friend.

Some folks will never learn, "Don't Feed The Bug!!!"
:nuts:

As far as the lounge goes, I vote for the full wet bar and strippers.
