West Metro Aviation is owned and operated by Lucas Oil Pitts Airshow Pilot, Michael Wiskus, and staffed by people who have a real passion for aviation. Our NASCAR style shop is a reflection of the quality work we provide for our customers. Our door is open, come on out, have a cup of coffee, ask some questions, and see what we’re doing out here.

​​

Located only minutes west of the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, the Buffalo Municipal Airport (KCFE) gives you a down home country feeling. But don’t let our friendliness and small town feel fool you. We have the equipment and experience to take care of your King Air, Caravan, Piston Twin or Cub. With a combined experience of more than 90 years in the aviation industry, we’ve seen a lot, but we have come to the conclusion that we don’t know it all.  Our network is vast and our contacts are many. If we don’t have a quick solution to your problem, we are not too big to ask advice or search for answers.

​​​

Thank you for checking out our website and please feel free to call anytime.

​​

Don’t forget, the coffee is always on!​

"The Building of a Legend." West Metro Aviation is honored to have been a part of building the Jet Waco for LT. COLONEL JOHN KLATT. When most of the air show industry was trying to stay afloat during a year of government sequestration, John Klatt was reinventing a legend, bringing back the combination of the radial and jet engine in the form of a biplane.

"A Family Dream." When Kyle Franklin approached our shop to help him complete a project he and his father started 9 years ago we were incredibly excited. The 500 horse power Pratt & Whitney R985 engine is mounted on a fuselage 20% smaller than a standard Waco UPF7. This makes his "Dracula" air show performance the blood curdling thrill of the crowd on show day.

"Rebuilding an Asset." One of our more traditional projects was brought to us by a customer who had made an investment in this beautiful Great Lakes Biplane. With care and precision we brought this classic back to its prime and helped add the value this customer was looking for.

"Air Show Quality Maintenance" The Lucas Oil Air Show Pilot needs to know that when he jumps into his Pitts he can push it to its limits without a second thought. To make sure the abuse Mike puts on this plane is not going to cost him his life we did a full tear down and comprehensive inspection. Bringing it right down to its frame, the control system and pivot points were all tested then recovered in a proven fabric process and beautiful paint job. ​

"An Overseas Endeavor" A flight school in Korea was referred to our shop for the restoration of this beautiful Pitts S-2B. ​This is a remarkable restoration with a pristine finish. One of the nicest S2B's to ever be restored. ​
