West Star Aviation has been awarded the FAA Diamond Award of Excellence for completing specialised training pertaining to aviation maintenance, safety and FAA rules at two of its locations, Perryville, Missouri (PCD) and the Denver, Colorado (APA) satellite facility.
This is the highest aviation honour in the aircraft maintenance industry, and West Star is proud to be recognised for its continued commitment to aviation excellence. The rigorous 12-month programme requires 100% participation from all eligible technicians, who provide dedicated maintenance to West Star's customers along with a specifically 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,” says Gary Schandl, director of quality assurance. “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.”
