G200 with West Star Aviation for major repair


West Star Aviation is performing a major repair on a Gulfstream G200 at its new location in Chattanooga, Tennessee, after it was struck by a foreign object. The aircraft is based in Atlanta, Georgia. The foreign object struck the fuselage above the window line on the left side between the fourth and fifth windows, leaving a crease in the skin. West Star will replace the entire skin using factory drawings and Gulfstream engineering support after attempting to cold work the crease.

“This is an exciting major repair that was brought to us from Atlanta,” said Rodger Renaud, president, West Star Aviation. “We are proud to be able to continue to service Gulfstream G200 aircraft, in a major way.”

West Star Aviation specializes in the repair and maintenance of airframes, windows and engines, as well as major modifications, avionics installation and repair, interior refurbishment, surplus avionics sales, accessory services, paint and parts.
