West Star Aviation has completed the first ever 24-year, fourth C inspection on a Falcon 900EX.

The magnitude of this inspection involved most areas of the aircraft as well as in-depth inspection and repair of the winglets, nose and main landing gear, and engine. Additionally, interior and avionics updates were completed as well as custom exterior paint. The complete project was performed at the Alton, Illinois (ALN) facility, one of West Star's four full-service MRO locations.

“With more than 925 years of collective Falcon experience, West Star completed 39 C Inspections in 2019, and we look forward to increasing that number this year, as well as conquering new milestones as we continue to grow,” says Eric Kujawa, VP Falcon product development.
