STS Aviation Services Gains UK CAA Part 21-J Approval

STS Aviation Services, the aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul arm of STS Aviation Group, announces it has been granted UK CAA Design Office Part 21 Subpart J Approval. The issue of regulatory approval follows nearly two years of executing several complex aircraft repairs and modifications while building the experience and database for both legacy and next-generation aircraft types.

“I am delighted that STS Aviation Services has been granted CAA Part 21-J approval,” says Lee Burgess, VP and accountable manager for Part 21-J at STS Aviation Services. “This is genuine testament to the hard work of the entire engineering organization. Customers of STS Aviation Group can now benefit from our repair and modification solutions, offering both CAA and FAA approval to keep their valuable assets flying safely.”

The CAA Part 21-J Approval compliments both the heavy and large-scale aircraft maintenance and modification capabilities that are being executed in the United Kingdom, as well as the work in conjunction with Ethan Steele, senior vice president for STS Engineer Services. For nearly two decades, Steele has devoted himself to the year-round delivery of safe, cost-effective aircraft repairs and modifications for airlines, lessors and OEMs around the world. 

“The receipt of STS Aviation Services' UK CAA P21 Subpart J approval underpins STS Aviation Group’s capability to deliver fully integrated aircraft-maintenance solution for new and existing customers,” says Brett Patterson, head of Design for STS Aviation Services. “This would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the P21-J team both here in the United Kingdom and in the United States. This approval brings opportunity, and it is the first step toward adding STC and Part 21-G POA to our capabilities in the very near future.”

The need and appetite for STS Aviation Services’ growing repertoire of aircraft maintenance solutions continues to grow, and achieving this milestone is essential to solidifying the company’s position in the global marketplace.
