July 12, 2018 – West Star Aviation is pleased to announce that it has acquired hangars at Perryville Regional Airport, (KPCD) in Perryville, MO, and will quickly bring capabilities online as its fourth full-service maintenance facility.
The company closed on its fourth hangar on the airport in late June, expanding their KPCD footprint to over 120,000 sq. ft. in hangar and office space. West Star’s largest hangar at its Perryville location can accommodate multiple large–sized corporate aircraft.

West Star currently occupies four hangar facilities at the airport, which includes a 28,800 sq. ft. state-of-the-art paint facility with a downdraft filtration system. This paint facility also has the capacity for largesized corporate aircraft. Most recently, the company has promoted Kyle French to General Manager to oversee all of Perryville’s operations.
