West Star Aviation has announced it has been awarded the 2021 FAA Diamond Award of Excellence for completing specialized training pertaining to aviation maintenance, safety and FAA rules at all five of their satellite facilities; in Denver, CO (APA), Chicago, IL (PWK), Houston, TX (CXO), Minneapolis, MN (MSP) and Aspen, CO (ASE).
This is the first year of accomplishment for four of the locations (ASE, PWK, CXO and MSP) and the third year in a row APA has been awarded this prestigious honor.
This is the highest aviation honor in the aircraft maintenance industry, and West Star has been recognized for their continued commitment to aviation maintenance excellence.
The rigorous 12-month program requires 100% participation from all eligible technicians, who provide continued dedicated maintenance to our customers along with maintaining a structured safety training program.
Each team member (978) completed the year- long program, qualifying the entire enterprise, the first in the company’s history, of this achievement of receiving the Diamond Award at all nine locations.
“Our team of technicians consistently exceed customer expectations and put in the hard work and dedication to claim these prestigious awards,” said Sharon Klose, Director of Satellites/MRT & Engines.
“This level of FAA AMT training is a major accomplishment, specifically for multiple locations”.
