Since 1985, Midwest Aviation has been proudly serving both the general aviation, military, and commercial flight operations on site at Barkley Regional Airport in Paducah. While our beginnings were rooted in aircraft sales, over time we have grown to include maintenance, line services, flight instruction and FAA Part 135 charter services.
Midwest Aviation embodies what it means to be a fixed base operator with our 8 departments ready to serve the flight community around the clock, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
On average our line service customer service/ team greets and attend to the needs to 21,000+ pilots, passengers and 10,000 airplanes each year. In addition we also provide services as needed to United Express/SkyWest, which operates commercial jet service out of Barkley Airport as well. We also offer aircraft storage eiher in hanger or tied down at competitive rates depending on the size and type of aircraft.
Our 44,000 sq.ft. base of operations located on the east side of Barkley’s airfield is an ideal location for private pilots as it adjacent to the intersection of both of Barkley Regional Airport’s runways, and our operating ramp runs parallel to the end of runway 14/32.
We operate an extensive fleet of aircraft that are available for charter, with all of our pilots receiving re-certification annually. Also our nationwide network of partners gives us instant access to planes of any size or cargo capacity.
