West Star Aviation’s sites in East Alton, Illinois, and Houston, Texas, have been re-certified as Mexican AFAC repair stations.
This replaces the DGAC certificate originally issued and provides safety and certification continuity between the FAA and Mexican aviation authorities. West Star’s site in Grand Junction, Colorado, was originally certified from the onset of the requirement in 2004. The company now has four locations approved by the Mexican AFAC, the other one being in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
“The extended certification will aide our customers at both of these strategic locations and provide our customers with additional service opportunities as needed,” said Santiago Carol, regional sales manager for Mexico and Latin America.
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.
