The Chattanooga team is ready to handle Embraer requests.

US MRO West Star Aviation has acquired additional hangar space at its Chattanooga Metropolitan airport/Lovell Field facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The additional hangar space will accommodate the growth of the Embraer programme while being able to accommodate additional customers with their maintenance and scheduling needs.
