“Spirit of St. Louis Airport is one of the most active airports in the Midwest and we saw a definite need for quality flight training in the St. Louis area,” Says Tom Cargin, Owner. “There was also very little piston aircraft maintenance at the field and we are pleased and excited to offer these services.”
