Bub and his crew were very professional, easy to work with and completed the project with the quality we have experienced on past Hi-Lite projects. We appreciate the efforts put forth by Hi-Lite Airfield Services, LLC and look forward to working with your company again. We will definitely keep you advised of any future marking or sealing projects.

- Brad Butler, Manahattan Regional Airport


We are very pleased with the work that Hi-Lite Airfield Services accomplished for us recently. I have been assigned to the airport for nineteen years and I can say the painting/striping on the runways and taxiways is the best it has ever been. The accuracy of all the striping could not be better. I would also like to say that your crew lead by Ben was extremely professional and the "Spirit of Cooperation" they demonstrated was outstanding.

We believe Hi-Lite is among the highest echelon of contractors in the industry. They are respected by their customers and as importantly they respect their customers. We would heartily recommend them for any assignment.

Bangor International Airport has utilized Hi-Lite Airfield Services, LLC under contract for runway removal for at least six years with no problems at all. Their equipment has been demonstrated as being mechanically and operationally capable of performing the work specified. I would highly recommend them to any airport for rubber removal or painting.

Even though there had been a NOTAM released, there were several "special" flights that all of the crews had to pull back for, your guys still completed their work inside the allotted runway closure time.

- Bobby Braun, Project Manager, Anderson Columbia Co., Inc., Florida


It was a pleasure working with your personnel. They were very professional and thorough. The airfield markings and rubber removal on the runway looks top notch. Thank you and your team for bringing us up to standards on our airfield.
