Training & Rentals

Ideal Aviation offers the broadest array of flight training options in the St. Louis area. Our fixed wing program includes technically advance aircraft, both single and multi-engine, featuring Garmin 1000 avionics, and we also fly Cessna 172s with the traditional six pack. We provide rotary wing training, too, in the modern Guimbal Cabri G2, a European helicopter designed specifically for training.

With almost 20 CFIs on staff, we can help you earn every rating from Private Pilot through CFI in fixed or rotary wing aircraft.

Our instructors are safe, knowledgeable, and helpful.
Whether you’re on an ATP track, or just someone who has always wanted to learn to fly, Ideal has a solution for you!


Amazing planes and service as always at Ideal Aviation
