West Star Aviation Rebrands MSP Aero as Sixth Satellite Location
West Star Aviation announces that MSP Aero has been rebranded as a West Star Aviation satellite location, effective immediately. West Star Aviation acquired MSP Aero LLC in November of 2017 and has, until now, operated as a stand-alone facility that retained its independent brand.
MSP Aero is an established FAA Part 145 Certified Repair Station that has been providing avionics, interior, minor paint and aircraft window repair services at KMSP and surrounding areas since 2009.
The KMSP location will join the five existing West Star Satellite locations which provide highly-trained and experienced technicians who aid in troubleshooting problems and providing solutions best-suited to getting back in the air as quickly as possible. They can even assist in obtaining ferry permits for relocating aircraft to one of West Star Aviation's full-service locations, if necessary.
"West Star Aviation's satellite network locations are also bases for our expanded AOG Mobile Repair Team (AOG/MRT) services that provide The West Star Experience to our customers wherever they are located," says John Mansfield, manager of Satellite Operations and Mobile Repair. "Additionally, we can coordinate any repair or service that is not capable to be performed in the field from one of our four full-service facilities."
"We continue to refine and strengthen our geographic MRO network to support customers' operational needs while bringing added value and capabilities throughout the Twin Cities, as well as the Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and both North and South Dakota areas," says Rodger Renaud, president and COO, West Star Aviation.
West Star Aviation specializes in the repair and maintenance of airframes, windows and engines, as well as major modifications, avionics installation and repair, interior refurbishment, surplus avionics sales, accessory services, paint and parts. In addition to its primary facilities in East Alton, IL; Grand Junction, CO; Chattanooga, TN; and Perryville, MO, West Star Aviation also maintains satellite facilities at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport in Aspen, CO; Chicago Executive Airport in Chicago, IL; Centennial Airport in Denver, CO; Conroe-North Houston Regional Airport in Houston, TX; Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport in Minneapolis, MN; and Scottsdale Airport in Scottsdale, AZ.
