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.
The Chattanooga location is a one stop shop for Embraer maintenance, as well as being the only OEM authorised Phenom 100 and 300 landing gear overhaul facility. With combined experience of over 102 years, the Embraer team has the expertise to complete scheduled/unscheduled maintenance, landing gear overhaul, interior and paint refurbishments or complete customisation as requested.
“With the additional 12,500 sq ft of hangar space, our expert staff now has the ability to offer additional maintenance and service needs to even more customers, reducing turn times and getting our customers back in the air sooner,” says Michael Forehand, programme manager.
