Business Overview

Welcome! Based in Boise, Idaho, Western Aircraft is the one of the West's largest aircraft services companies, offering maintenance, aircraft sales, avionics sales & installation, aircraft parts sales, FBO services, airline fueling, aircraft charters, and aircraft management . But we certainly didn't start out big.

History
Western Aircraft began as the corporate flight department for the Morrison Knudsen Corporation (MK), headquartered in Boise, Idaho, over 60 years ago. In 1957, MK responded to an overwhelming need for aircraft repair services by applying for and receiving its first FAA Certified Repair Station Certificate. During the 1980's, three more hangars were added, and the company became a wholly owned subsidiary of Morrison Knudsen Corporation incorporated under the name of Western Aircraft Inc.

In 1995, Al Hilde, Jr. and Allen Hoyt purchased the company from Morrison Knudson. Over the next 12 years, the company became the world's largest PC-12 dealer and also became an Authorized Falcon Service Center among other things.

In July 2007, the company was purchased by Greenwich AeroGroup. Through the Greenwich AeroGroup we have an affiliation with Atlantic Aero Inc. On-going improvements and investments in people, training, tooling, technology and facilities have helped us to offer our customers personalized service and unsurpassed technical expertise.

Today, Going Above and Beyond
Today Western Aircraft is an authorized service center, certified aircraft repair station (FE6R532N) and worldwide distributor of parts and avionics for many of the world’s top aircraft manufacturers and OEM’s such as Dassault Falcon, Pilatus, Hawker, Beechcraft, King Air, Honeywell and Collins. We hope this web site will give you a good idea of everything we can do to help you. If you have any questions, please contact us.
