West Star Aviation recently acquired additional hangar space at their Chattanooga, TN (CHA) facility. The additional hangar space will accommodate the growth of the Embraer program 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 Authorized 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 customization 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,” said Michael Forehand, Embraer Program Manager (CHA).
