St. Louis Regional Airport in Bethalto is home to many businesses, some that serve aviation, and some that have a broader reach. One business that caters to a niche market in aviation circles is West Star Aviation - a business that refurbished used jets. It has become so busy, it needs to add a new 40,000 square foot hanger.
What that means to St. Louis Regional Airport is the airport will facilitate the construction and eventually own the structure, according to St. Louis Regional Director David Miller.
West Star Aviation has offices in Bethalto, Chesterfield, MO, South Carolina, Texas and Colorado.
