West Star Aviation recently opened a new paint and maintenance hangar at the Chattanooga facility.
With the completion of the new facilities, West Star now occupies over 162.000 m2 of space at the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport. The completed expansion includes a new 60.000 m2 maintenance facility with 37.000 m2 of hangar space, and over 32000 m2 of office and support space. Furthermore, the facility contains a 41.000 m2 state-of-the-art paint facility that can accommodate the paint needs of most business aircraft flying today, including Gulfstream G550, Embraer Lineage, and Embraer Legacy 600.
The first customer project to be completed will include a 3C Inspection, Service Bulletins, an avionics installation and a full paint job on a Falcon 2000. This project is anticipated for completion before Q1 of 2019. “We are pleased to have our first customer in service at the new expansion to our Chattanooga facility. This completed expansion provides our team the capacity to ensure we are working efficiently, and meeting deadlines to get our customers back in the air as quickly as possible,” said Steve Goede, General Manager of West Star Aviation, Chattanooga.
