Des Moines Flying Service was founded on the Des Moines Municipal Airport in 1937 and acquired by our legendary founder, Howard Gregory, in 1939. In 1987, Des Moines Flying Service was sold to Van Dusen Airport Services, which later became Signature Flight Support. Nearly 80 years ago, Piper Aircraft named the company as one of the first Piper Aircraft Distributors – a relationship that continues to this day. Our aircraft sales efforts continued as Gregory Aviation Company.
In 1994, Des Moines Flying Service re-acquired Des Moines Flying Service (DMFS) name & brand, as well as the Service, Avionics and Parts business from Signature, to more closely align our sales and service efforts.
