About Ideal Aviation
Ideal Aviation is a full service aircraft rental, flight training, fractional aircraft ownership, and aircraft maintenance & avionics facility serving both present and future pilots at St. Louis Downtown Airport (KCPS), just minutes from the Gateway Arch.
Our facility spans 3 hangars, and we have over 20 CFIs on staff to meet all your training needs. Our growing fleet currently includes ten aircraft (fixed wing single and multi-engine, and rotary), and we also have FAA Certified flight simulators for those rainy days!
"I began my flight training when I acquired Ideal Aviation in 2011, and I have since earned my private, instrument, and multi-engine ratings. I use our planes for business and for personal trips … it’s been a fantastic opportunity to combine work with pleasure!"
