Heritage of Commitment

Beginning as a flight training school in 1945, Priester Aviation has expanded under three generations of family ownership and leadership to become a business that can handle the needs of clients worldwide. But despite our growth, we still treat each client with the individual attention and service that George Priester, our founder, laid out more than 75 years ago. We deliver our legacy daily.
