A fast-growing Empire rises by maintaining turboprops

Published: November 27, 2012

The north end of the Coeur d'Alene Airport was vacant land a decade ago. Today, it's home to a growing empire.

Empire Airlines is a FedEx feeder carrier with a fleet of 52 planes operating in 16 states. Empire also ran a commuter airline between Coeur d’Alene and Boise for 11 years in the 1980s and ’90s. The lesser-known but faster-growing division is Empire Aerospace, which performs heavy maintenance on regional-sized turboprop planes, such as the 76-seaters flown by Horizon Airlines.
