We're Throttling Forward
Today's Sabreliner is a diversified aviation services company that is recognized worldwide for keeping older aircraft flying and supporting new aircraft production.
Our customers include some of the biggest names in aviation: Airbus, BAE Systems, Boeing, Bombardier Aerospace, L-3 Communications, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Sikorsky Aircraft, to name a few. That’s special company to keep.
As a specialty supplier to other aviation organizations and to the U.S. military, Sabreliner manufactures airframe assemblies, parts, components and tooling for use in new fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft production and in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of existing aircraft. Many parts and assemblies are produced under contract with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and shipped directly to them for use in new aircraft production or in aircraft maintenance operations. Others are used in aircraft repairs performed by Sabreliner.
At our dedicated aerospace manufacturing center, our dedicated assembly center and other facilities, Sabreliner meets the most demanding needs of today’s aerospace OEMs, their major suppliers, the military services and other customers. We also repair and overhaul aircraft engine accessories for power plants from Rolls-Royce, Honeywell, General Electric and Pratt & Whitney Canada.
While the company is an emerging aviation manufacturing powerhouse today, our manufacturing experience began a half century ago as the OEM of the military T-39 and the civilian Sabreliner business jet. During the first two decades of the business jet era, when the organization was part of the Sabreliner Division of North American Aviation and later of Rockwell International, the people of Sabreliner assembled more than 400 Sabreliner business jets. Some of those aircraft set international flight records as they established new standards for business aviation performance and fueled the growth of the organization.
The company's development is accelerating today, continuing to build upon that strong manufacturing backbone. Our customers are among the largest companies in aviation, and we work with all of the U.S. military services to help them sustain their air fleets. Much of our work is critical to national defense and integral to new aircraft production. And, we maintain our strong commitment to the Sabreliner civilian and military T-39 aircraft we built.
We continue to invest in technician training, new technologies, state-of-the-art equipment, facilities expansions and other resources to support our customers with excellence as cost effectively as possible.
Sabreliner now has nearly 450 employees and more than 425,000 square feet of aviation manufacturing, processing and repair facilities in three locations, plus our St. Louis headquarters. As an OEM, a parts manufacturer and an expert in aging aircraft, Sabreliner is an experienced and responsive aviation services provider with proven performance in:
- Airframe structural assemblies and subassemblies
- Flight control surface structural overhaul
- Airframe modification and repair
- Depot-level maintenance for government and civilian aircraft

Sabreliner is building on a pioneering tradition that actually began a half century ago when the first T-39 prototype took to the skies. That prototype was soon followed by the world’s first twin-engine business jet – the Sabreliner Model 40, the foundation of business aviation for the next 50 years.
