Westjet Air Center: A Soaring Passion for Flight Runs in the Family

RAPID CITY, S.D. – What began in 1975 as a job for Linda Rydstrom has turned into a multigenerational family business and a pillar in the Rapid City community. That is Westjet Air Center, the lone FBO at Rapid City Regional Airport (RAP). The business has been family-owned and operated by Linda and her husband Don – along with their daughter Miranda (Rydstrom) Maleki – for more than 40 years. Today, Linda and Miranda are majority owners, making Westjet one of the few FBOs that are female-owned.
