West Star Aviation – A Success Story in Grand Valley Aviation
In 2016, West Star Aviation was honored by GJEP and Charter Communications with the “Spirit of Economic Development Award” for the company’s strong sense of community and commitment to enhance the economic vitality of Colorado’s Grand Valley.
West Star has operated in Grand Junction for nearly 60 years and has become one of the largest employers in Mesa County with over 400 employees and a payroll that exceeds $18 million per year. The company’s community involvement spans multi-million dollar capital expansions to partnering with local hotels, restaurants and businesses like Enstrom’s to provide an exceptional and unique customer experience.
Despite having grown to encompass multiple offices across the country, West Star Aviation still proudly occupies a main office on Rood in downtown Grand Junction, where it started.
