Airgo has a long
history that can be traced back to 1968, when
Les Erb merged his company (Sparta Aviation) with
Airgo, Inc. The Airgo named stayed and the
journey began. Airgo, at one point in history,
provided fixed base operation (FBO) services at four airports; was a
leading dealership for new Cessnas in the 70's and 80's;
continues to provide FAR 135 Charter Services throughout the US;
trains pilots through the GI Bill; and manages a
thriving International FAR 141 flight school.
Today, Airgo's main
office and fixed base operation continue to be proudly located in Centralia,Illinois.
We specialize in Professional Flight Training from
Sport Pilot through Airline Transport Pilot (ATP), aircraft sales and service,
and all related FBO services. We have survived the
cyclical nature of aviation business for over 42
years and look forward to the challenges ahead.
While not the largest FBO/Flight School in the US,
we have developed a world wide reputation for
getting the job done. Bigger isn't always
better and we can prove it. We have trained pilots
and sold aircraft (literally) around the globe.
We have an
experienced staff that is eager to meet your
aviation needs 24-hours-a-day 7-days-a-week. Give
us a chance to show you why we have remained a leader in Professional Flight Training.
