West Star Aviation Receives Cessna Approval as an Authorized Independent NDI Facility
West Star Aviation's Chattanooga facility receives Cessna approval as an authorized independent nondestructive inspection (NDI) facility. The approval allows West Star to perform nondestructive testing and inspections (NDT) requirements on Cessna models, as well as provides access to documentation and the required standards/kits needed to perform the work.
The approval is in addition to a wide variety of approvals and capabilities West Star has to service Cessna aircraft, which extend beyond being an authorized Citation jet service center for aircraft maintenance and warranty provider.
"We are proud of this approval as it continues our long-standing growth and support of maintenance on Cessna aircraft. Being an independent NDI facility allows us to perform NDT services in-house at Chattanooga which will help us potentially decrease downtime and cost for customers," says Thomas Hilboldt, general manager, West Star Aviation.
