West Star Aviation, Inc.
Premier Air Center, of East Alton, IL (ALN), was founded in 1947, originally as Walston Aviation. After an ownership change in 1987, the name was changed to Premier Air Center. Since then, the company has built a solid reputation for strong technical expertise and personalized customer service for maintenance and refurbishment of corporate aircraft.
Similarly, West Star Aviation’s roots extend back to 1952 when the original company, Monarch Aviation, was founded at Walker Field, (GJT) Grand Junction, CO. On May 1, 1987, the Buescher Family of Grand Junction acquired Monarch Aviation and began the transformation of the company from an aviation sales and service business to a top-rated business aircraft maintenance and refurbishment facility.
