Sabreliner Corporation continues to thrive as a diversified aviation services company that supports current and older aircraft maintenance, refurbishment and remanufacturing needs for civil and governmental customers. Since its success with the Rockwell Sabreliner line of business and military jets, Sabreliner has become a premier supplier and subcontractor to Airbus, BAE Systems, Boeing, Bombardier Aerospace, L-3 Communications, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Sikorsky Aircraft as well as the U.S. military. Sabreliner is headquartered in Clayton, MO and has facilities in Perryville, St. Mary and Ste. Genevieve Missouri.

In Perryville, Sabreliner services U.S. Army Black Hawk helicopters, U.S. Air Force C-21 Learjets, U.S. Navy T-39, T-34 and T-44 trainers, and A-4 Skyhawk aircraft for civilian customers. In Ste. Genevieve, Sabreliner provides maintenance for flight control components for the Air Force KC-135 and the Navy E-6B. Also, replacement components are made for KC-135 rudders and E-3 Sentry elevators as well as center wing assemblies for the P-3 Orion anti-submarine aircraft flown by the U.S. Navy, other U.S. agencies and allied governments. In St. Mary, the company also fabricates sheet metal assemblies for Bombardier's production of long-range Challenger business jets and makes assemblies, sub assemblies and components for Sikorsky helicopters.  

Sabreliner will provide special vintage paint jobs for selected U.S. Navy aircraft during the 2011 celebration of the Centennial of U.S. Naval Aviation.  Check back in the future for more photos as they become available.  Go to for a preview.
