I fly into Banning a lot since my sister lives there. I like it. Yes, it's pretty desolate but the fuel prices are good and lots of ramp space to tie down....into the wind of course. Yes, it gets windy there. Sometimes really windy...but it's almost always down the runway one way or the other.
Luxivair at San Bernardino treated us great when we flew in several months ago. I really nice FBO with good service. A loong taxi from the 10K ft runway but kinda cool. KSBD is the old Norton Air Force Base. Big.
