West Star Aviation Ramps Up For Fourth Full-Service Facility at Perryville Regional Airport (KPCD)

West Star Aviation 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.

In the coming months, West Star will be adding employees and capabilities as they continue to develop this location to its fourth full-service MRO. 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 large-sized corporate aircraft. Most recently, the company has promoted Kyle French to General Manager to oversee all of Perryville's operations.

"We are thrilled to continue our expansion and have Perryville as our fourth full-service location. This location will provide additional centralized maintenance options for our customers all over the world," said Jeff Curry, Vice President of Operational Efficiency, West Star Aviation.

"I am excited to play an integral part in West Star's planned expansion and look forward to bringing the West Star mix of experience and capability to our customers at KCPD," said Kyle French, General Manager, West Star Aviation.
