West Star Aviation has nearly doubled its mobile repair team (MRT) for AOG in the past year, the business aircraft MRO provider and FBO operator said this week. It now has AOG/MRT services available from its four full-service, six satellite, and four non-fixed base locations including at Atlanta DeKalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK) and Florida's Tampa International Airport (TPA). It’s part of a continuing effort by West Star to increase its AOG coverage across the U.S. and reduce response times, according to the company.
“We can provide services such as maintenance, inspections, evaluations, and repairs at our facilities, or bring the necessary services directly to [the customer],” said West Star satellite operations and MRT manager John Mansfield. The MRT expansion also allows West Star to provide on-site support at major sporting events such as the Super Bowl.
Besides Atlanta and Tampa, West Star’s expanded AOG/MRT network includes Scottsdale, Arizona; Aspen, Denver, and Grand Junction, Colorado; Chicago and East Alton, Illinois; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Perryville, Missouri; Cincinnati, Ohio; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Houston, Texas; and Madison, Wisconsin.
