West Star’s full-service facility in Perryville, Missouri, now has FAA Class 4 Repair Station approval, enabling it to service larger sheet-metal airframes, in addition to most major corporate airframes. West Star’s three other full-service facilities already hold the approval.
All four of the full-service sites are also implementing second shifts to maintain consistent turn times with the increased capabilities.
“We are continually increasing our services and capabilities to meet our customers’ needs, as well as adding new customers with our expanded services available,” said Kyle French, general manager at the Perryville site.
West Star Aviation specialises in the repair and maintenance of airframes, engines and APUs, avionics installations and repair, major modifications, interior refurbishment, exterior paint, accessory services and parts.
As well as the Perryville site, West Star’s other full-service facilities are located in East Alton, Illinois; Grand Junction, Colorado; and Chattanooga, Tennessee.
West Star Aviation also maintains satellite facilities at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport in Aspen, Colorado; Chicago Executive Airport in Chicago, Illinois; Centennial Airport in Denver, Colorado; Conroe-North Houston Regional Airport in Houston, Texas; Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport in Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Scottsdale Airport in Scottsdale, Arizona.
