The Rotary Club of East Alton, Ill., recently recognized West Star Aviation as its Business of the Year.
Brad Lavite, incoming East Alton Rotary Club president, applauded West Star for keeping its national headquarters at St. Louis Regional Airport and adding a 47,000-square-foot maintenance facility, which was dedicated on May 13.
Total facility space in this community has grown from 250,000 to 317,300 square feet and the company reports it now employs approximately 300 employees here. West Star also has facilities in Grand Junction and Aspen, Colo., Columbia, S.C. and Chesterfield, Mo.
“West Star Aviation’s commitment to quality service has made them one of the world’s leading aviation service providers,” said David Miller, Rotary Club member and airport manager at St. Louis Regional. “I am continually impressed by the number of international planes that come into the airport for service based on their reputation.”
West Star Aviation specializes in the repair and maintenance of airframes, windows, and engines, as well as major modifications, avionics installation and repair, interior refurbishment, surplus avionics sales, accessory services, paint and parts.
