The Aero Experience team returns to our monthly General Aviation (and More!) series with a look at our collection of aircraft sightings from April. We start off the new month with a survey of the general aviation, business and charter aircraft we encountered last month at two different airports. We hope that you will enjoy this photo essay, and you may see yourself here somewhere if you look closely!
Spirit of St. Louis Airport is home to general aviation and a significant percentage of the St. Louis area's corporate fleets. Here we feature a new Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Jet Ranger X in hover; a Falcon executive jet on takeoff; and aircraft on the apron at Wings of Hope along with those used in the Medical Relief and Transport Program.
St. Louis Downtown Airport is home to a large general aviation community along with business aviation aircraft. Featured below are general aviation aircraft on the West Ramp; a Piper Cub used by Airspace Aerial Media; two Canadian-registered jets - a Citation and Air Canada Airbus team charter; the St. Louis Flight Training fleet; two piston-engine transports - a World War II veteran Douglas C-47A/DC-3C and a Convair 440; a U.S. Special Forces Command Pilatus U-28B on takeoff; and rotorcraft, including a Guimbal Cabri G2 trainer, Robinson R66, Bell Jet Rangers and a Bell 212.
