Elite Aviation is a full time, full service aviation company providing the St. Louis community with excellent flight school and piston aircraft maintenance amenities.
For beginning pilots to life time aviators, for the recreational to the career minded, Elite offers flight instruction customized for the individual to meet goals and schedules. Our latest model Cessna 172 training fleet as well as a Piper Saratoga-32T is available for pilot rental for those who meet checkout requirements. Our RedBird Full Motion simulator and our Elite Sim offer currency options as well as weather consistent training.
Maintenance of our fleet is a bragging point for us and we are proud to offer well maintained and updated aircraft via our IAs and A&Ps. Our service personnel are thorough in their research, conscientious of time and expense, and striving to make every touchpoint efficient and accurate for our own fleet and for our customers'. We provide routine inspections, 50 and 100 hour maintenance, annuals, ADSB In/Out, troubleshooting and much more. Our service inventory stocks around 1500 different items keeping plane downtime to a minimum, but should we need to order, our friends at Textron as well as many other suppliers are well connected.
Our commitment to community is far reaching and includes aviation seminars, rusty pilot training, Flying Vikings, Volunteers In Medicine, A Seat At the Table, and STEM program initiatives and partnerships including the St. Louis Science Center, CBC aviation camps as well as local school districts and colleges. The aviation industry is growing and we want to be strategic in building opportunity for the future.
Elite Aviation offers airplane brokerage and pre-buy inspections for pilots that are expanding their personal flight options. We find it extremely rewarding to assist our customers in this process walking them through the many caveats of aircraft purchasing and ownership.
