Trust and Transparency, Every Flight, Every Time.

ABOUT US

STL Flight Maintenance, formerly known as Big River Aviation, has a rich history dating back to its establishment in 2010. Beginning as a mobile service repairing and inspecting aircraft in Missouri and Illinois along the Mississippi River, the company quickly earned a reputation for excellence.

In 2015, Big River found a permanent home at St. Louis Regional Airport in Alton, IL, marking a significant milestone in its journey. By 2017, the company had outgrown its initial hangar and made a strategic move to St. Louis Downtown Airport, where it continues to expand and flourish today!

Under the new management led by Josiah Bridges, STL Flight Maintenance boasts a seasoned team with a combined total of 92 years in aircraft repair and maintenance. Our skilled team includes 3 A&P IA's, 2 A&P's, 1 Airframe and 2 Apprentices, all dedicated to ensuring the highest standards in aircraft care.

As we transition to STL Flight Maintenance, we carry forward the legacy of Big River Aviation, combining experience, expertise, and a commitment to excellence. We look forward to serving you and the aviation community with the same passion and dedication that has defined us over the years.
