West Star Aviation has had both its facilities at St Louis Regional airport in East Alton, Illinois and Conroe-North Houston Regional airport in Houston, Texas re-certified as Mexican AFAC repair stations.
This replaces the DGAC certificate originally issued and provides safety and certification continuity between the FAA and Mexican aviation authorities. West Star's Grand Junction Regional airport location in Grand Junction, Colorado was originally certified from the onset of the requirement in 2004. It now has a total of four locations approved by the Mexican AFAC, namely three of its full service facilities at Grand Junction, Colorado, East Alton, Illinois and Lovell Field in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the satellite location in Houston, Texas.
“The extended certification will aid our customers at both of these strategic locations and provide our customers with additional service opportunities as needed,” says Santiago Carol, regional sales manager for Mexico and Latin America.
