    I dusted off some footage from a year ago, when I met friends in Kansas City. Had not been to MCI before, so I took the opportunity to check another Class Bravo airport from my bucket list.

    Nice. MCI controllers encourage GA traffic - outside the pushes.

    dunno, just repeating what an approach controller told me.

    I haven't been there in some years but that's some dull a** FBO to spend a day at.

    I only spent a few minutes inside the FBO at MCI - only until the Uber arrived - but I felt very welcome there. The line and desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
    Sure, they are a bit pricey, but then all the Class Bravo airports are.

    Nothing to do with the employees working there, it's just a small place with not much to do or places to go. JFK and ATL and DFW are a couple of others where the FBO building is all by itself. We used to walk to the hotel for lunch at MCI though.
