The FAA has approved West Star Aviation’s Perryville, Missouri, facility as a Class 4 repair station, the last of the MRO provider’s four, full-service facilities to earn the designation. As a Class 4 facility, the Perryville site will be able to service larger sheet metal airframes, including for most major business aircraft models.
In addition, all four primary West Star facilities—which include East Alton, Illinois, Grand Junction, Colorado, and Chattanooga, Tennessee—have added second shifts to maintain consistent turn times with the extra capabilities. “We are continually increasing our services and capabilities to meet our customers’ needs, as well as adding new customers with our expanded services,” said West Star Perryville general manager Kyle French.
West Star also operates satellite MRO facilities at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport in Colorado; Chicago Executive Airport; Centennial Airport in Denver; Conroe-North Houston Regional Airport in Texas; Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport; and Scottsdale Airport in Arizona.
