US MRO West Star Aviation has been awarded two AMT Gold Awards of Excellence for its facilities at St Louis Regional airport in East Alton, Illinois and Grand Junction Regional airport in Grand Junction, Colorado.
It has also scooped two Diamond Awards of Excellence at its Perryville Regional airport in Perryville, Missouri and its Centennial airport satellite location in Denver, Colorado. These are first time awards for each facility except PCD, which has been awarded for the second consecutive year.
Through the AMT Awards programme, the FAA recognises eligible technicians and employers by issuing awards to those who promote and foster recurrent training. AMTs and employers are encouraged to participate aggressively in available initial and recurrent maintenance training/courses. The FAA also recognises employers who take a proactive role in training their technical workforce and offers awards based on training received and completed within one calendar year.
“This is a major achievement for all the teams involved; they have worked diligently throughout the last year to complete and receive this recognition awarded by the FAA and they are a proud representation of West Star,” says West Star CEO Jim Ranken.
