FAA Diamond Award of Excellence for West Star Aviation


West Star Aviation has been awarded the FAA Diamond Award of Excellence for completing specialised training across multiple aviation-related fields including maintenance, safety and FAA rules at its satellite facilities in Perryville, Missouri, and Denver, Colorado.

The rigorous 12-month programme requires 100% participation from all eligible technicians, who provide maintenance to customers alongside the completion of the structured safety training programme.

“We are honoured to receive this prestigious award as it is a true testament of the ongoing training culture West Star provides to our skilled and experienced technicians,” said Gary Schandl, director of quality assurance at West Star Aviation. “We will continue to encourage all our locations to participate in the valuable programme and aspire for each of them to be awarded the honour next year.”
