STS Aviation Services (STS) has received CAA Part 145 approval to conduct base maintenance operations at its aircraft maintenance facility in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
Aircraft types included in the new approval cover the A320 family, A330, B737NG and B757 with additional aircraft to be added in the coming months. The STS team will immediately focus on aircraft modifications, structural repairs, engine changes, A Checks, C Checks, lease transition and bridging checks.
“STS Aviation Services has received Part 145 approval from the UK Civil Aviation Authority; and in record time no less,” said Mick Adams, Sr. Vice President and CEO of STS Aviation Services. “While our company’s first priority right now is the safety and welfare of its people, we look forward to commencing operations as soon as possible and welcoming our growing global customer base to a truly remarkable facility.”
STS Aviation Services has plans in motion to increase its active workforce at the 120,000 SQ/FT BHX maintenance center to 100 Mechanics and Engineers by the end of 2020. The team is also looking to move its active headcount past the 250 mark by the end of 2021.
“Even in our current global climate, aircraft need to be maintained and modified,” said Kevin Dudley, Chief Commercial Officer for STS Aviation Services. “This puts our company in a unique position to not only help the global aerospace industry in a great time of need but to also help the Mechanics and Engineers who keep our aircraft flying safe.”
STS Aviation Services now operates two base maintenance facilities in the United Kingdom; one in Birmingham (BHX) and the other in Newquay (NQY). The company also operates a third base maintenance facility in Melbourne, Florida.
