Maintenance & Avionics

Ideal’s maintenance crew stands ready to serve your GA needs, from oil changes to engine swaps. With over 100 years combined experience, our mechanics are ready to provide you with a quality experience that will meet or exceed your expectations. We work on most major makes and models, from trusty Cessna 172’s to the most modern technologies from Diamond, Cirrus, and others. Ideal is St. Louis’s oldest Cirrus Service Center, and our Part 145 Avionics Repair Station is a dealer for Garmin, Avidyne, Aspen, and other major brands. From a pitot static check to Cirrus chute repacks, Ideal stands ready to help you.

What makes Ideal different from other shops? We are thorough, we do things by the book, and we communicate with you every step of the way. Before we touch your plane, you will receive a detailed estimate to the penny … and we don’t lift a finger without your approval. When the plane is delivered, your bill and logbook entries will be ready to go … with no surprises! And, of course, we always stand behind our work.


Amazing planes and service as always at Ideal Aviation
